The Brunswick Valley under-17s had their first win of the season with a good team effort to down Bangalow 12–0. Constant pressure by the 17s saw a string of penalties in their favour, with Sage Nara converting four of them. Best: Nick Frazier, Cai Leplaw, Jeremy Callanan.

The under-15s found Lennox Head far too strong in the forwards and went down 27–3 despite creating several scoring opportunities but failing to cross the line. Sticky Fingers man of the match was James Alexander; best others: Lewis Mann, Otis Morrissey, Trent Arthur.

This Friday 15s and 17s travel to Grafton; bus leaves 5pm. Under-11s home to Casino kick-off is at 6.30pm.
