Young Crushers: Crushing It


Last Saturday saw teams from across the region flock to the Ingham stadium for the junior rugby league home game.  

The U16 boys crushed it with an amazing result of 68 – nil. 

When asked whether hosting Townsville District Junior Rugby League home games were bringing in people from outside the community to visit Ingham, one of the coaches, Grant Swarbrick, replied, “The Townsville Brothers bring a good crowd behind them and the Western Lions bring a good crowd too.”

Home games are also gathering strong local support. There are currently 120 young people in the Club from ages 5 – 16 and who come from across the region. 

The results from the day:

U10s played hard but lost 15 tries to 7. 

U11s played a close game but lost 9 tries to 7 tries.

U13 on the buzzer had a kick to level the scores just missing the goalposts. They lost 26 to 24. 

U14 showed considerable improvement in their game.  They lost 48 to 12.

U16 boys won 68 to nil over the Centrals.
