TEAM LIST TUESDAY: ROUND 2 JUNIOR REPS

Last Saturday, the NSWRL Junior Representative competitions kicked off and all three of our teams went up against the Newcastle Knights. Our inaugural Tarsha Gale Cup (U19s Females) team was first up and the cheer as these young women ran out on to the field for the first was amazing. The girls managed to calm the nervous and channel the Bear and although the Knights got the first points on the board with two early tries our girls quickly recouped with Chloe Jackson scoring the first try for the team in the 20th minute and Sienna Williams converting.
