Colts Down to Central North in Drama Filled Match

illawarriors u20  logoIn a drama filled NRMA Colts Shield Final at the NSW Country Championships in Mudgee on Sunday, Illawarra were very unlucky to go down 10 – 16 to rivals Central North. The Kookaburras posted 2 tries and 2 penalty goals to go to the break with a 16 – 3 lead. Illawarras only first half points came from a penalty goal by Ryan Schoupp. In a sensational incident 5 minutes before half time, both sides lost players to the sin bin and Illawarra had a player sent off.

Illawarra fullback David Sheridan, who was filling in at halfback behind a ruck was taken out by an offside Central North player. As both players scuffled on the ground several other players became involved in an unsavory melee which resulted in Referee Simon Ashworth sending off Illawarras flanker Ben Robinson for punching and then sin binning Sheridan and Kookaburras five eight Zeb Buchanan.

Rep Rugby Creates Results

Camden are off to great start to season 2013 following their 4 try, 26-0 victory over Tech Waratahs at Camden on Saturday. With Illawarriors and likely Cockatoos Captain Gavin Holder producing yet another Man of the Match performance and Fly-Half Ben Greentree adding much stability and guidance, the Rams now find themselves at the top of the table. With all other Round 2 matches washed out, their win creates a situation where all other clubs now have someone to chase. After showing plenty of promise in 2012 the Rams will be very happy with the start to their season.

Camden now head off to Ocean Park next week for the Match of the Day against Shamrocks. Lets hope the weather holds off this week for what should be a bumper game.
