Groundbreaking Match for U17s Today

As Club Coach I would like to acknowlegde the ground breaking match against the Clovelly U17’s today. 15 of Bowral’s U17 squad headed into Maroubra and played an awesome game of rugby against Clovelly. The Clovelly side scored 3 tries in the first 15 minutes. To the credit of the Bowral boys, they fought back to within 1 try with 5 minutes to go. Bowral had the ball on the Clovelly line in the last minutes and were so close to scoring when Clovelly won the ball and ran the length to seal the victory. Whilst Clovelly won , we are proud of the way Bowral fought back and put themselves into a potentially match winning position. The Clovelly team contained a number of City rep players and they were tested by the Blacks! The future looks good with the current crop of juniors moving through the ranks!
