What a great start to the rugby season for our youngest Junior Redbacks! We kicked off at Box hill with a Rebel Rascals training session led by the Melbourne Rebels Development Officers. The kids showed some great skills throughout, focussing mostly on passing and catching. They were thrilled to participate however they really couldn’t wait to get their first taste of action on the field against Box Hill…..

……..and wow, what a start to the season! Four unanswered tries to the Redbacks early in the match showed that our youngsters have hit the ground sprinting. Our newest recruits, Henry and Mani showed great skills with their chasing, tagging, passing and running.

At the end of the game our Coach George had great pleasure in handing the player of the day medal to Mani for his tireless chasing and tagging in defence to stop the opposition. Well done to the whole team. We now look forward to next weekend for another Rebel Rascals skills session and game at Harlequin’s grounds. Any new 6/7 y/o’s are more than welcome to join us so please come along!
