Muswellbrook’s junior Rams and Ramettes return home with four titles

THE Muswellbrook and District Junior Rugby League Football Club capped off a big year by winning four titles at the weekend.

The organisation boasted six representatives in the girls’ league tag and boys’ age competition deciders – and almost enjoyed a 100 per cent strike rate.

“It’s been a massive season,” publicity officer Michelle Williams said.

“And, we’re proud of all the kids.”

The under-12 girls claimed their crown against Singleton, thanks to a 24-4 triumph, with Ramette Isla Johnston being named Player of the Match.

The under-14s also knocked over Singleton, this time to the tune of 34-16.

Youngster Matilda Jones picked up the Player of the Match honours.

Unfortunately, the under-16s lost their encounter 28-0, finishing runners up to Singleton.

The Rams’ under-12s secured their division three title in 2017, remaining undefeated.

And, in the newly-developed Arnott Cup division two series, the boys collected runners up after West Maitland prevailed 20-16.

The under-13s were deemed both minor and major premiers.

With Muswellbrook fullback Brody Perry leading the way, the Rams defeated West Maitland 28-10.

The club’s presentation day is set down for Saturday, September 16, over two locations.

“We’ll be at the Muswellbrook Race Club from 10am until noon – for the under-6s through to under-11s; and then the Muswellbrook RSL Club between 3pm and 5pm for the under-12s through to the under-16s,” Williams said.

“The AGM will take place at the Muswellbrook RSL Club on Wednesday, September 6, from 6.30pm.”
