THE under 9s Magpies ended their first season back in the Group 3 junior competition with a match against Forster Gold at home last Saturday.
The team played well, displaying some great defence with Zac scoring a try.
Jack Johnson had his first hit-out at dummy half while Brady Johnston and Hamish Wakefield were standouts.
The under 11s hosted a large and committed Forster-Tuncurry Gold side with their season on the line.
A win would see them in the finals while a loss could see them drop out of the title race altogether.
The visitors were all over the Magpies in the opening exchanges and only some sterling defence across the park prevented the Forster side from crossing the line.
Darcy Allardice was a standout.
The second half saw the game open up with the Magpies enjoying the extra space to take the win 22-6.
Rohan Everett scored a double with Cooper Fordham, Thomas O’Mara and Harry Moore also crossing for the home side.
