Axemen on tour
THE 2010 junior rugby union representative season is under way with Mid North Coast taking part in their first trials at Armidale last weekend.
Union spokesman Richard Jagger said the Axemen juniors took five sides on tour and played 12 matches.
“We had strong play in the under-16s and dominant play from the under-13s who won all three games,” he said.
“Our 12s, 14s and 15s were a little rusty and have some further tactics to practice.”
Training for all grades will take place at Crescent Head Rugby Park from 10am next Sunday.
The session has been called to avoid the Easter school holidays but coaches will talk to the players to see if they wish to organise another session while school is in recess.
Any age group which hasn’t got a game against another zone on the weekend of April 30 to May 1 should attend another training session at North Macksville Soccer grounds on the Sunday.
Country Championships will have the sides spread around the state.
The under-16s will kick off April 30 at Sophier Park at Ourimbah on the Central Coast. On May 5, the 14s and 15s play at Bowral, while the 12s and 13s visit Tamworth on May 14.
