League-Touch Round 3 wrap

DCIM\101GOPRO

Round 3 of LeagueTouch was hosted by Como-Jannali and again featured Rugby League and LeagueTouch being played side-by-side. Early in the day, the round looked to belong to De La Salle as both 9’s teams had nice wins defeating Bosco 38-0 and Como-Jannali 32-14.

This was followed by De La Salle 11’s BLUE winning their inter club rivalry against De la Salle 11’s GOLD and with the 15’s and Ladies games coming up, De La Salle may have been thinking a sweep was on the cards. Taren Point had other ideas though and by the days end, everyone would be talking about the mighty Taren Point Titans.

In the 15’s division, Cronulla-Caringbah BLACK and WHITE won their respective games 38-0 v Como-Jannali and 24-12 v Aquinas to continue their good form. Taren Point RED then stepped up wearing their new playing strip and upset the more fancied Del La Salle opponents 34-10.

It was a surprising result and more surprises were on the way. The titans other 15’s team, Taren Point BLACK dominated Como-Jannali 24-6 and with this momentum, the Titans ladies turned into giant killers by beating the undefeated De la Salle in the opens game.

This game was special for a few reasons. It was the first ever LeagueTouch 9’s played on the full sized field, it featured many 15’s players for the titans backing up who all excelled and Taren Point got their first win in the division.

The final game of the day saw another full field LeagueTouch 9’s game between Como-Jannali and Gymea. Both teams traded tries throughout and with the siren sounding Gymea scored in the corner needing a conversion to tie things up. The kick scrapped the outside of the upright to the joy of the local Como crowd and the Crocs got the much needed win that sees them jump to second on the ladder.

The stars of the day were without doubt Amelia Feeney and Chloe Boston from Taren Point. Both players featured in the 15’s wins as well as backing up to play for Titans ladies in their victory. Feeney and Boston were both outstanding in the Ladies game and definitely will be players to watch this season and beyond. Another great day for LeagueTouch and a very special one for the Titans.
