After a promising start to the season, Hawkesbury Valley placed all four senior teams into the Quarter Finals of the NSW 2nd Division Sub-district rugby competition.

Guard of honour for Cam Worland who played his 300th game on the weekend…

 

Unfortunately only 1st Grade were able to come away with the victory, beating Old Barker 42 – 12.

 

The team finished equal second on the table, only going down to Newport in

previous encounters, including a last round battle for the top spot in a very entertaining game, losing 32-28 in front of around 600 vocal Newport supports at their home ground.

 

1st Grade will take on the University of NSW team next week for a spot in the Grand Final. When they last clashed, Hawkesbury were comfortable winners 45 – 21.

The victorious 16s won their Grand Final last week…

 

The Colts team went down 36 – 0 in their final to the very strong Eastern

Suburbs side.

 

3rd Grade were extremely competitive against Uni of NSW, losing a close 24 – 19.

 

2nd Grade were looking the goods against Hills, but lost in the final minutes 8 – 7 in a very close match.

 

Cam Worland, playing for the Valley 3rd Grade team, is one of only three other club players to reach his 300th game.

 

Putting in a sterling effort as half back and goal kicker, he played as well as ever but couldn’t finish the season and this milestone with a victory.

 

Last week, Hawkesbury Juniors managed to get three teams into the finals last week,

with the 16s making it to the grand final on Sunday.

 

They came up against highly fancied Sylvania Bulldogs, who had already beaten Valley on two occasions this season. The Valley boys were able to turn the tables on their opposition for the Grand Final, winning 17-5, after a nil-all score line at half time.

 

An enthusiastic group of Hawkesbury supporters travelled to Forestville to cheer

the team on.
