League tag sitting well for semis

Both the under 18 Blayney Bears side and the league tag side are sitting in the top five of their respective Group 10 ladders, and league tag coach Steve Mooney said he’s feeling confident they’ll stay there.

“We’re really getting there at the moment and considering we haven’t had a full side for a while we’re sitting in a good place,” he said.

This time against Workies we shouldn’t have any trouble at all.

The Bears have the bye this weekend and when the league tag return they’ll be up against their equal points scorers on the ladder, CYMS and Workies.

Mooney said that all they need do is knock them both off to secure their place in the semis.

“The last time we played CYMS we beat them easily, but when we played Workies it was the day after the Josh Farr fundraiser,” he said.

“We lost 4-2 on that day so this time against Workies we shouldn’t have any trouble.”

When that game comes around on July 29, Mooney said that there will be a recognisable voice in defence.

“Grace has been away for five weeks and we’ve been missing her voice when we’re defending,” he said.

Last Sunday’s match saw both Holly Hopkins and Sophie Stammers score points, as did Olivia Bird when she crossed the line and converted her own try to end the game with a 14-10 win.
