It was a good day to be a Cobar Rooster

Reece Josephson, surrounded by Dubbo City defenders, forced his way through to touch down under the posts for his second try in his Under 11s’ team 38-26 win over Dubbo City on Saturday morning at Tom Knight Memorial Oval.

Cobar Junior Rugby League president Simone Knight was thrilled with the club’s four wins from their five games on Saturday for Round 5 of the Dubbo & District Junior Rugby League competition.

“It was a good day to be a Rooster,” Mrs Knight told The Cobar Weekly.

The Under 10s won their game by a big margin of 50-4; the Under 11s finished as 36-26 winners; the Cobar Under 12s won their thriller of a game 18-16; and the Under 14s had a win after they received a notified forfeit from Dubbo City.

The Under 10s started the day with a fantastic 50-4 win over visitors Dubbo City.

It was a great team effort with eight team members scoring tries including Nate Martin who finished the match with a hat trick.

Cobar’s other try scorers were Mitch Allen, Tim Eves, Brandon Maguire, Jack Rogers, Zaiden Saunders, Hayden Seng and Jhett Walsh.

Also adding to their team’s tally with successful conversions were Jaxon Burke, Tim Eves, Tim McCormack, Hayden Seng and Nate Martin.
