The Goldilocks played at 2pm against Temora, where they had a tie scoring 36-36. Eliza Taylor made her team proud with a hat-trick in the second half.

Brendan Welch achieved his first try, making his teammates and supporters proud.

Keagan Size, George Chudleigh, Adam Hick, Ben Griffiths and Toby McGrath scored momentous tries on the day. Giving the game his all, Bullfrog scored a try and kicked a conversion.
