The Cobar Junior Rugby League Club had lots of cause to celebrate on Saturday when they hosted Dubbo and Narromine teams for Round 7 of the Dubbo & District Junior Rugby League competition.

The Cobar Under 10s started off the day with a thrilling 24-20 win, Under 12s also narrowly won 26-24 and the Roosters 15/16s wrapped up a very good day with their high scoring
58-4 victory over the Dubbo City visitors.

The Under 10s narrow four points win over Dubbo City came with Jacob Chandler posting Cobar’s winning try just moments before the fulltime siren at Tom Knight Memorial Oval on Saturday morning.

It was his second try of the match with team mates Rowdy Barton, Nate Martin and Kai McCosker also crossing for the Roosters.

Rowdy and Nate landed a conversion each to add to Cobar’s winning 24 points tally.

Jacob Chandler and Takai Cantrell shared  their Coach’s Awards.

The Cobar Under 12s also had a close win over the Dubbo City visitors with Reece Josephson spearheading the young Roosters to a 26-24 win on Saturday.

Reece ran in three tries with Oisin McMullen, Lachlan Willard and Hayden Seng also crossing for tries for Cobar.

Tim Eves kicked a goal.

Reece and Tim earned the Coach’s Awards.

Cobar Junior Rugby League president Simone Knight reports the 58-4 result in the 15/16s game was the highest scoring winning margin in that age division this season.

Cobar’s backline had plenty of pace and they ran in 10 tries with Ben Griffiths, Zane Taylor and Koby Knight all recording doubles.

Tries were also scored by Chris Millgate, Ryley Morley, Tom Rogers and Ted Smith.

Ben Griffiths finished the day with six successful conversions and Ted Smith converted two more.

The Coach’s Awards went to Koby Knight and Zane Taylor.

The Cobar Under 11s were defeated 36-4 by the Narromine Black team.

Cobar’s only points came from a try by Zaiden Saunders.

Axel Fairfull and Jack Rogers earned the Coach’s Awards.

The Roosters Under 14s went down to Dubbo South 50-0.

Bayley Barber and Jamal Eves collected the Under 14s Coach’s Awards.

Under 12’s player Reece Josephson and Under 14’s Reynold Mugugia were both recognised on Saturday for playing 50 games for Cobar Junior Rugby League which is an impressive feat.

In Sunday’s Minis Under 6s competition, George Wainiqolo and Harlym Curtis collected the Coach’s Awards while the Coach’s Awards for the Mods Under 8s went to Mark McBride and Tillie Cain (on debut).

The 10s, 12s, 14s and 15/16s teams will take on Saint John’s Gold in Dubbo this week.
