Peachey/Richardson Rugby League Knockout
On Tuesday 4th April, MPS traveled to Dubbo to participate in the annual Peachey/Richardson Rugby League Knockout. We took a record five sides this year; two Year 3 / 4 sides and three Year 5/6 sides. All the boys were able to play lots of footy on the day and learn some new skills. For many it was their first game of football. Every one left with sore muscles, some bumps and bruises, but all wearing large smiles.
One of our senior sides won all four games and was successful in making it through to the finals. They were beaten in a very tough game. For many boys, this was their fourth day of football in a row so they were extremely fatigued. However, these boys gave their absolute best and need to be congratulated on their efforts.
A big thanks to all the parents who assisted throughout the day. Without your support this day would not have been possible.
Western Rugby League
MPS took 9 students who were selected in the Cudgegong Zone side to try out for Western in Dubbo. They competed against the best players from the Western area including major regional areas such as Dubbo, Bathurst and Orange. The students who attended were for under 11’s – Will Stott, Lachlan Hemingway, Jordi Robertson, Lachlan Clayton, and Kai Fisher. For Opens – Jamie Underwood, Jet McAullife, Jesse Bodiam and Jake Grocott.
Two students were successful in selection and will be representing Western in an upcoming carnival in Sydney. Congratulations to Kai Fisher for making Under 11s and to Jamie Underwood for making the Opens side.
