The Cobar Roosters junior rugby league teams joined with the senior sides and Mini players on Saturday to present a feast of football at Tom Knight Memorial Oval.

St John’s Blue opened the day with a win in the Under 10s game up against an ever
improving Cobar team. Club president Simone Knight said there was no shame for the Roosters in the final 24-0 score line.

“St John’s have always been an extremely strong club,” Mrs Knight said.

The Cobar Under 10s coach’s awards for the game went to Reece Josephson, Jaxon Burke and Jack Rogers.

Despite some good runs by Ebony Aumua, and a converted try by Reynold Mugugia, the Under 12s were beaten 44-6 by South Dubbo.

Cobar’s Players’ Player was Jamal Eves while the coach’s award went to Kai Taylor.

The Roosters Under 14s were soundly beaten 50-0 by their South Dubbo opposition.

Cobar’s Players’ Player was Samuel Shepherd while Ted Smith collected this week’s coach’s award.

Good games were also had by Ryley Morley and Jacob Clark.

Under 15s’ coach Jacob Good (not Robbie Good as misreported last week) fought back in their match up against Dubbo City.

The visitors took an early big lead in Saturday’s game before the Cobar side kicked into top gear.

Dubbo City were declared winners 50-6.

Ashley Davies touched down for Cobar and Tyson Brilley landed one conversion.

Tyson collected the Players’ Player accolade while the coach’s award went to Chris Crotty.

In junior league representative news, Cobar’s Zane Taylor once again lined up with his Group 11 Under 13s side on Sunday in Dubbo.

The pacey winger helped his team to a comprehensive 52-16 win over their Group 4 opposition.
