JRUC Match Reports 1 August 2020

Saturday 1 August was a truly memorable day in the club’s history. It was the single largest day of home matches we’ve ever had! Every team was scheduled to play at home, so we needed to use two fields! Back to back matches from 10:15am (with two matches kicking off at the same time, meant it was going to be huge. Thank you to our amazing army of committee members and volunteers that pitched in to help and make it a success, especially with the extra work needed in this crazy time.

Unfortunately the U14s had a late forfeit from their opponents which meant they didn’t get to play, but for everyone else it was an amazing day. Check out how they went…

Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs

The Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs’ 22 (L Pepper 2, M Thrum, J Roarty tries, D Johnson conversion) def Batemans Bay 13.

The Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs hosted Batemans Bay Boars in their first home match of the season. Batemans Bay always show up to play expansive footy with plenty of pace across the park, and this was no exception. The Bay converted early pressure into points, with a penalty goal seeing them take a 3-0 lead after 9 minutes. 

The Bushpigs struck back when hooker Liam Pepper burrowed through in the left corner following a strong passage of play downfield from the men in green. 

However Batemans Bay regained the lead with a converted try shortly after. They extended their lead with a second penalty goal at the 30 minute mark.

The Bushpigs again found space down the left side of the field to break out of their own half. The ball was then shifted through the hands to winger Mitch Thrum on the right side, who got around his opposite number and scooted down the touch line to score in the corner. The Bushpigs went into the break behind 13-10.

The came out firing in the second half, with replacement centre Jake Roarty crashing over after a rampaging run from 25m out. 

From this, the Bushpigs made wholesale changes, with a host of fresh forwards coming on the field to put the tiring Batemans Bay defence under pressure. The Bushpigs began to dominate field position but this didn’t convert into points, until Liam Pepper again crashed over late in the second half. 

The Bushpigs enjoyed their first win of the season, which capped a phenomenal day of rugby with 5 other juniors matches taking place on a perfect sunny day.

The Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs have a bye next weekend, before hitting the road to Bungendore on August 15. The next home match is Saturday 22 August against Taralga.
