Did you know:
That almost 100 years ago to the day Uni 1st XV beat Manly on a forfeit, back on the 21.6.1919 at Manly Oval. The reason, The ‘Spanish Flu’ had hit Sydney.
James Kane reached his century in 1st Grade this weekend with a try and 3 goals and now is on 105 points this season. James also reached his 400th career goal/pen goal for the Club.
Josh Hardie pasted his 300th career points since 2017 Colts and now has 309 points.
Jack Redden scored his 50th career try in 2nd Grade’s 35-17 win. That’s 250 points in just tries along.
Tim Clements’ try in the main game was 1st Grade’s 50th for the season.
It says a lot for the Club’s defence systems in grade when we have only kicked 9 penalty goals to our opposition’s 33.
In Colts we won all grades again, and scored 18 tries in doing so. From that total of 18 only one forward scored Will MacPherson in 2nd Colts.
Jon Searle (pictured) is the new Colts leading try scorer with 10, closely followed by three other players on 9, they being Thomas Latu, Max Robson and Eddie Poolman.
Max Robson scored 2 tries in 1st Colts win and that was enough to reach his 100 points this season.
We haven’t beaten next week’s opponents Eastwood at T.G.Milner Field since the 14th August 2010, some nine games ago up there. Our last win was 38-24.Fingers crossed we can get the win this Saturday.
