UNDER 15 GRAND FINAL!
The Mudgee Wombats under 15s went down to the strong Dubbo side in the Grand Final of the Central West under 15’s played at the Orange City home ground last Saturday. The scoreline of 41 – 7 in Dubbo’s favour was not a true indication of the match which was a great exhibition of rugby from both teams. Mudgee started well and repelled the Dubbo onslaught with some outstanding and courageous defence. Dubbo scored 3 tries in the first half but certainly did not have everything their own way with Mudgee unlucky not to have scored on a couple of occasions. After the break Mudgee finally breached the Dubbo defence to score a converted try and looked set for a comeback but it was not to be with Dubbo running in a few of tries towards the end of the match. The Mudgee boys, who were giving away a weight and age advantage to the big Dubbo side can hold their heads high after an outstanding season in 2019. Well done boys! Up the mighty Wombats!
