Bungendore Mudchicks Vs Uni-North Owls

Story: Brooke Melavirta

The chicks played a very hard fought game this week, holding the owls out right down to the whistle. It all clicked for the chicks this week, working as a team and fighting right to the very end. 

Taryn Robson had a great game in 9, scoring two tries with one assist, kicking to the corner for Meredith Wells to chase down scoring a much needed try! Amylia Martin, her first year playing rugby put on some massive hits along with Dorothy Carroll, those two working together is something to watch! Gabrielle Klomp again having an absolute blinder, making some massive try saving tackles! Taylor Kay stepping up to vice captain this week proved that she is a senior leader in this team, didn’t stop talking all day! 

Coaches are incredibly proud of each and every one of the girls this week with Josh exclaiming, “this is what we’ve been working towards!” 

The final score was 28 – 32 with the Chicks just missing out right on the whistle. This week the chicks will be working more on set piece and keeping the mentality and team spirit at a high!

Bungendore Mudchicks Vs Goulburn Dirty Reds

Story: Brooke Melavirta

The Bungendore Mudchicks played their first game of the season against the Goulburn Dirty Reds.

The Chicks worked very well individually, however are still learning how to work as a team. This game is a great starting point for the Chicks, now giving the coaches an idea of what to work on as they move through the season. The Mudchicks have many new players this year, as well as many players returning.

There were plenty of positives to take out of this game, Gabrielle Klomp proving to herself and everyone how well she can play in different positions! Dottie Carroll as always, making some huge runs and putting on some big hits! Amylia Martin in her first game putting on some massive hits! Jody-Lee Leibick playing in the backs but running like a forward and Kayla Smith making some good runs before unfortunately getting injured, cutting the game short.

Coaches are proud of how the girls went this weekend, and now know what needs to be worked on. The Chicks are looking forward to playing Uni North Owls next Saturday! 

The points for this round go to:
3 points – Gabrielle Klomp
2 points – Jody-Lee Leibick
1 point – Dorothy Carroll
Coach’s Player – Amylia Martin
