02 Jul Plenty of tries
The Whites scored plenty of tries in round 13 games against Easts and RMC in fourth grade. Eleven tries were scored in first grade, ten in second grade, four in colts, five in thirds and four in fourths.
First grade won 65-3, seconds 60-7, colts 22-5, thirds 49-33 and fourths 26-14.
Leading the charge were first grade No 8 Soakai Tai and second grade No 8 Tom G. Darmody three each. Others who enjoyed crossing the white line included third grade centre Riley Ahern with three, colts’ fullback Riley Hughes and first grade winger Larry Manu two each.
It was good to see colt Fraser Smith given some time in the top grade and enough time for him to score a try. Another colt Puni Aupuni came off the bench for second grade and also notched a meat pie.
It was a good day at Griffith. Next week may not be the same with the Whites coming up against Royals at Campese Oval.
Royals again beat Tuggeranong in first grade 24-17 and in second grade 25-17. Tuggers won the lower grades where Royals have struggled all season.
For the Whites the return of injured players and the stability of the squads two pluses as they finals loom.
