McClintocks Machinery Under 7’s
Last Saturday the McClintocks Machinery Under 7’s took on West Wyalong at West Wyalong. The team for Grenfell was Braydon Smith, Lachlan Smith, Tyler Stevens, Jonathon Smith, Hayden Reid, Emily Edwards, Lee Ryan and Jack Sutton from West Wyalong came across to even up the numbers.
It was a high scoring game for the Under 7s, coming out with a 32 to 16 win.
Braydon and Lachlan both had a busy game with Lachlan scoring a try and converting as well. Braydon added to the points score with his first attempt at a conversion. He lined the ball up, took his back and sidewards steps and kicked the ball straight through the centre of the posts, earning him a loud cheer from the sideline. Even now, we are not sure who was more surprised, Braydon or his Mum, or Coaches Daniel and Connor!
Jonathon tackled well and had a great game all round. Hayden seems to be following in big brother Benji’s footsteps as he weaved through the defence. Emily Edwards flexed her girl power as she scored a try and was too fast to catch. Lee Ryan went over for his first ever try in Junior League and added to both the tally and his excitement as he then converted. Tyler Stevens scored two tries and converted one as well. It was a great display of teamwork from all of the Under 7’s.
West Wyalong Under 7, Jack Sutton who helped us out, also scored a try for Grenfell. What great sportsmanship from such a young player. Thanks Jack.
Dykhoffs Bakery Under 8’s
The team for Grenfell that played last Saturday at West Wyalong consisted of Benji Reid, Jaxon Stock, Hamish Birch, and playing up from Under 7’s; Emily Edwards, Lachlan Smith, Hayden Reid, Tyler Stevens, Lee Ryan and Jonathon Smith.
It was a tough game from the start for the Under 8’s with most of our side being made up from Under 7’s who had played the game before hand. Benji and Lachlan were our try scorers for the day, which made up for the only points Grenfell got on the board.
Jaxon had a great game. He is becoming more confident with each week, which shows as he puts 100% effort in on the field. Hamish, only in his first season, is starting to look like he is a veteran as he defends hard and runs the ball with plenty of determination.
The Under 7’s who played up, all had a great game, defending well and pushing through the defence. Thanks guys.
West Wyalong came away with the win for the day, but a lot of fun was had by all.

Terry Carroll Bus Service Under 10’s
Grenfell’s Terry Carroll’s Under 10’s travelled to West Wyalong last Saturday.
The team played very well together with a huge improvement from last week, showing size doesn’t matter, coming up against a bigger & stronger side.
Kyle scored three brilliant tries & converted one. Harrison also scored a try & kept Grenfell in the game the entire time.
Angus played extremely well, making a few great runs to keep the other team on their toes.
The whole team showed improvement in both their defence & attack, but unfortunately losing the game in the last five minutes with the other team scoring two late tries to seal the game.
The final score being 32-20, West Wyalong’s way.
CJ Anderson and Co Under 12’s
The under 12’s team to run out against West Wyalong last Saturday consisted of: Lachlan Stevens, Veronica Garrity, Kevin Silburn, Saxon Southwell, Jack Garrity, Mathew Ryan, Nathan Wilson, Adam Hewen & Thomas Penfold. Supporting the U/12’s from the U/10’s are: Joshua Honeyset Smith, Harrison Starr & Kyle Mawhinney.
Grenfell began the game with a kick straight to West Wyalong. Even though West Wyalong scored their first try within the first five minutes, the first half of the game was fairly even. Grenfell were determined to make sure the opposition only scored the once.
Nathan showed this by tackling hard. When put to the test the U/12’s really tackled as a team after the initial try of day was scored. It was Grenfell’s turn to receive the ball & were doing well to make ground.
The pressure was Veronica when running the ball up the sideline, but she did well keeping the ball in play when up against a few defenders.
The ball was passed between Harrison & Matty, then onto Lachlan who kicked it through the opposing team. Thank goodness Kevin had the speed to follow & chase the ball & come up with it before West Wyalong knew what happened. Joshua received a pass & did well to make ground.
It was hand over time to West Wyalong who seemed to make their way a fair distance down the oval only to knock the ball on. Adam was doing his best to hold off his defenders to keep the ball moving.
West Wyalong intercepted when a pass was made but the referee called them back. Once again Nathan used all his strength to push through to the try line, only to be stopped short.
Kyle did a great job in placing the ball down for Grenfell’s first try & unfortunately only try, for the day. Lachlan as usual was able to quite confidently place the ball directly over the cross bar for a conversion. This brought the half time score to Grenfell 6 – West Wyalong 4.
Grenfell All Power Service Centre Under 14’s
This week we headed off to West Wyalong to play them at their home ground.
The team to take the field was Jarrad Wilson, Cameron Medo, Rhys Martens, Julian McAlister, Frazer Ryder, Mitchell Stevens, Chris Pertout, Patrick King, Declan Brebner, Lachlan Kiss, Hamish Starr, Aaron Mawhinney and Lachlan Stevens, who played up from the Under 12’s.
Grenfell kicked off fiercely chasing the ball with great defensive tackles by Rhys, Frazer, Hamish and Jarrad but Grenfell unfortunately couldn’t hold them out.
Not to be outdone Rhys then went over for our first try with Mitchell successfully converting. Not long after Jarrad went got his first try for the game.
Cameron was defending well out on the wing while Aaron was holding up the centre of the field strongly.
Frazer and Jarrad were in amongst the action because both of these boys took down the biggest kid on the field single handed on two separate occasions which really boosted the team’s morale. Patrick went over for our third try just before the half time hooter.
Hamish and Lachlan K were running hard and busting tackles. Chris and Patrick were defending very well and taking the ball up hard.
Mitchell was doing well as per normal with the boot and doing a great job delivering the ball to the running player.
Our boys came out firing in the second half but West Wyalong saw gaps and went over within minutes.
Rhys followed this up by picking up the loose ball and running about 80m to score his second try under the uprights and Mitchell converted.
Julian and Declan were taking the ball up hard and defending well.
Thank you to Lachlan S for playing up yet again. He had a great all round game.
The boys continued to defend the line, but to no avail because West Wyalong found the try line a few more times.
Even though West Wyalong came away with the victory, it was a well fought and enjoyable game. Well done boys.
