Harden Hawks Rugby League, June 9, 2017

OUR youth league side travelled to Tuggernong and had to play at 9.30am in what we thought would be a danger game against Tuggernong, who defeated the Hawks in the grand final last year.

The Hawks were out for revenge and ran out winners 26 to 0 in a dominant display.

Best in the forwards were Will Quinn, Brent Shoard and Chris O’Conner who tackled every thing that moved.

The Hawks remain undefeated and at the top of the ladder. 

****

Hawkettes took on Gunning in the league tag and led 18 to 0 at half-time.

The second half was a tight encounter with Gunning scoring a lucky try to make it 18 to  6 which the scored stayed.

The Hawkettes were not at their best but still came away with a solid win.

To Gunning’s credit they were a much improved side.

Best were Clare Smith with two tries, Grace Smith never stopped trying and Mary Lou Minehan.

The Hawkettes remain in second spot behind Bungendore.

*****

Hawks first grade Tooke on gunning in a one-sided affair the Hawks led 48 to 0 at half-time and went right on with it in the second half winning 82 to 0.

Strong  performances from Adam Byrne, scoring three tries, Eddie Jenkins was great at 5/8.

Jayke Hogan was great in his first game in the Hawks’ colours scoring two triess and taking out players.

The Hawks now have two byes and then a grand final rematch against reigning premiers, Canberra Bears at Harden.

Hawks remain equal first with Crookwell and lead the club championship overall by 14 points.
