Plenty of locals featured in the first country shield win for the Far North Coast U/12s rugby side. Photo supplied

The Far North Coast U/12s rugby team won the NSW junior country championships earlier this month in Coffs Harbour.

It’s the first time that the local representative team has got their name on the championship shield.

The U/12s team played four games on Saturday September 11, losing only one game against Hunter Rugby, which allowed them to compete in the semi-finals.

In their first semi they played the undefeated Illawarra team, beating them to take a spot in the final. The FNC team then played Hunter Rugby in the final, this time winning 19–12.

There were nine kids from the Byron Lennox area in the team.

They included: Marlon Andrews, Jesse Smith, Noah Eugarde, Luke Roberts, Beau Yantsch, Cameron Gillan, Rocky Tobin, Finnigan Spinks and Adam Price.

One of the two coaches Steve Spinks is from Lennox Head while the other, Dane Mitchell, is from Yamba.

The FNC U/13s side came fourth in the eight-team competition.
