Clean sweep of wins for the Tully Tigers’ junior rugby league teams

Tully Tigers’ and Innisfail Brothers’ teams after their game in Tully last Saturday.

LAST weekend, 120 junior rugby league games were played across the region at Jones Park, Cairns, Ravenshoe, Davies Park, Mareeba, Alley Park, Gordonvale, and Tully.

Last Friday night, Tully’s Under 16 team travelled to Jones Park, Cairns, and defended their unbeaten record with a strong 28 – 4 win over Cairns Brothers.

Tully Tigers’ junior teams had a Super Saturday, competing against the Innisfail Brothers, before the senior games against the Innisfail Leprechauns at the Tully Showgrounds.

After eight rounds, the Tully Under 15 team remained undefeated after a solid victory over the Innisfail Brothers.

The Tigers Under 13 team, with only one loss for the season, were too strong for their Cassowary Coast rivals, Innisfail.  

Despite wet and miserable conditions, the Tully Tigers’ Under 8 teams played round robin games against the Innisfail Brothers.

The Under 8 players were then invited to run out of the tunnel with Tully Tigers’ A-grade players, which was an unforgettable experience for this future generation of rugby league superstars.

In March, Jason Hallie, Braithan Ketchell, Cameron Nelson, and Colby Thomson from the Tully Tigers’ Under 16 were named in the Northern Pride’s Under 16 team and played against the Townsville Blackhawks.

Thomson impressed in his first hit-out and scored two tries in his debut game.

Cohen Emmi was next to make his debut in the Northern Pride’s Under 16 team and scored a try in his first game against the Mackay Cutters. 

Congratulations to Jason Hallie who received the Most Improved award, and Cameron Nelson the Players’ Player and Best and Fairest for Under 16 at the Northern Pride’s awards’ presentation last Saturday.
