PowerHouse Golden Girls

PowerHouse Womens Rugby has had many players pass through our fold, and in an effort to keep those no longer playing (for fact of age or place of residence), up to date on whats happening with the team, the Golden Girls newsletter/blog is here to keep you posted.

GRAND FINAL - Northern at Box Hill

a super hot sunny day and all our teams were on field 1 (yeah! - means we didnt need to move the eskys).

the girls kicked off at 9am, our preperation not the best because of the early start, but we took the pitch in a relatively good frame of mind. The game was very competitive, with Northern playing on the edge of the law the whole game, losing a few calls every now and then, but winning ground every other time. the score (19-0 to Northern) dosnt really reflect the closeness of the competition, it wasnt a walk over, but they did play that little bit harder, faster, stronger.

The colts were out matched in their match against against melbourne, but definilty were the best dressed team one the day - they all looked quite dapper in their shirts and ties - just how a rugby team should look (note to self: we must have 'number 1s' for after matches next year...).

And to the firsts. At half time i must admit the crowd had their heads in their hands. 20-0 down, why is it so! the back lines passing was pretty ordinary and was definitly the downfall of the first halve. a few great tries in the second half and with about 5 min to go we only down by 2 points. two more tries gave PowerHouse the win and cause for much rejoiceing!

There was plenty of celebrating for the rest of the afternoon, evening, night, next day with 1st grade getting a bit of the sporting hero treatment back at the club! Stay posted for some photos.
