Last weekend the Moonshiners hosted their second ‘Moonshiners for Mental Health’ Charity Day to raise funds and awareness for Beyondblue.
A great crowd and some exciting rugby provided an excellent atmosphere.
The Moonshiners would like to thank everyone who came out to support a great cause and helped make this day so special.
The club managed to raise over $5,500 for Beyondblue and are proud to continue to support such a great charity.
The Moonshiners urge anyone to please seek help if you are dealing with any mental issues! There is support out there and you don’t have to fight this alone.
The first game saw the Moonshiners take on the Byron Bay Sandcrabs in reserve grade and both teams came out firing with Byron managing to maintain a lot of possession in the first half.
But the Moonshiners’ defence was up for the challenge led by Man of the Match Wally Andrews and Cal Condie, who both put in huge performances; the Shiners managed to hold out the Byron attack and only leaked a penalty kick.
The Shiners’ backs looked dangerous with the ball and barnstorming centre Jack Govett managed to grab a double, showing his speed and strength against some very good opposition.
Tries to Rhys Daniels and captain Duncan Kendall capped off an awesome game that entertained the huge crowd throughout.
Mullumbimby ran out winners 26–3.
Mullum have a bye this week and are currently top of the Reserve Grade ladder.
Byron Sandcrabs need to win with a bonus point on Saturday at home against Lismore City to challenge for a finals berth.
The first grade game between Casuarina and Byron was just as entertaining and was tight for most of the game before Byron ran away to win 38–19.
The win was the fifth in a row for the Byron side and secured them a place in the final four for the third season in a row.
The Byron Bay teams take on Lismore City this Saturday for the final home game. Byron Bay Recreation fields, from 3pm.
