Byron Bay Rugby took another massive step forward as a club with the staging of its first junior rugby game in almost 30 years.
On a warm autumn night the mighty Under–9s ran out against Wollongbar at the Rec fields last Friday.
Within minutes play had swept to all corners of the field and when the dust finally settled the Bay youngsters were celebrating an epic 11 tries to eight victory, not that anyone was really too worried about the score.
Coaches Craig Page and Pete Bailey do a great job with the kids. The team trains at the Rec fields every Tuesday at 5pm. Craig can be contacted on 0419 681 481. Go the Bay!
Pictured in Byron Rugby’s long awaited junior team are: Matthew Freedman, Matthew Page, Christiaan Knoetze, Angus Wilkie, Ned Cowan, Jackson McCabe, Sam Fisher and Dylan Bailey.
