Good stuff trapped...modest too by the sounds of it. ;) Thanks for the report...it's always interesting to follow how you're going. Is Haynes still playing with you?

Haynes plays in one of the other U16 teams. We have three. Unfortunately - it's not the Big Phillers team!
I strangely find myself in the top age team, but I'm actually the youngest in our team.

Good luck next week

We won by 39 points against Hadfeild.

Full Back all game aaaagaiiiiin.
But at least we won.

Trapped.
Not always the "glamour" spot Trapped, but as Disco said, its an important position, your coaches must think highly of you to entrust that responsibility on your young shoulders.

Just a point mate, the club I was involved in has a very highly regarded coaching structure in the junior grades, u/12, u/14, u/16 and u/18s.
One priority they had was putting kids down the back with a view that this teaches them how to read the game. The benefit of this is, as you get the opportunities to play up the field you're a much better "reader" of the game than some others who were just put in those positions and never learned much else.

Take it in your stride mate, you'll get the benefits later. Just put in and do the best in whatever position you play, I'm sure you do that anyway.
Your time will come.
Good luck next week.
Willo

Sorry bout the lateness...again.
Ill remember to do it right away this week.
We won again, Full Back again..
Against Airport West, by about 140 points.
We all played well, and i kicked one goal, from full back, i got a bit bored.
Anyway, this week we play Westmeadows, wearing the best jumper in
the world!
Hopefully We'll Win.

Trapped.

Well done mate, take the wins anytime you can.
Maybe they should have given you a bit of a run elsewhere with that score. At least you used some initiative to go forward and kick a goal ;)
Keep working hard, listen to your coaches and play for the team. Your time will come. Good luck this week. I hope you have a corker

Well..we won by 116 points today.
20 22 142 to 4 2 26.
I played in many various positions, Bench, Full Back, and Foward Pocket.
They were all quite fun seeing as they were playing a 3 man foward line..
anyway it was a good win and i enjoyed it.

Trapped.

You got a good run then mate, glad to see you played some different positions this weekand enjoyed the game. Bloomin big win.
Well done to you and your teammates.
Who do you play next week?
Is it going to be a harder game? sounds like you need some stiffer competition. Take the wins when you can.
Good luck next week
Willo

Well..
the scores were.
Us: 14 - 7 - 91
Hadfeild: 8 - 6 - 54
Smashed them all game.
I didnt really get into it though.
But that doesnt matter.
There was a massive fight at the end, due to the fact
that a player for hadfeild from the division 5 team who
had been banned from the EDFL for 5 years the week
before for strangling and umpire jumped the fence and
started laying into some of our players about 4 minutes
from the finish.
So it was called off and the game was awarded to us ;D

We would have won easily anyhow. 6 goals is a lot to
make up in less than 4 mins.

Sounds like a game to be remembered. There was an all in brawl, supporters umpires and all, after one of our kids' Under 17 grand final wins and that's the game everyone remembers.

Congratulations to trapped and the team and everyone else involved. :cupgold

Hate reading about that sort of stuff. I've seen a bit of it happen over the years and the morons that do it never seem to get collared. Had this goose gone mad and started hitting people in a shopping centre he'd be in jail.

So were the police called Trapped?
