FIVE young Medowie Rugby juniors players have been given the representative nod, in exciting announcements this week that they have been selected for various representative teams.
U15s player Jordan Eade was selected for the second year for the Hunter Wildfires representative team.
His U15s team mate Chris Woodfield was selected for the Mid North Coast Axemen.
Both Jordan and Chris played at the Country Championships at Crescent Head in May, with both of their respective teams ending up in the final match, with the Wildfires taking the win in the final minutes.
Jordan then went on to play with Hunter in the State Championships in Sydney, where they took fifth place.
U11s team mates Murray Woodfield, Michael Moffat and Divan Bezuidenhout were all chosen for Hunter Wildfires Development Squads this season, with Michael and Divan chosen for the U11s squad, and Murray in U10s.
Michael and Divan played in the State Championships last weekend and loved their first taste of rep rugby.
Murray heads to Sydney in July for the U10s Competition.
A Medowie Rugby Club spokesperson told News Of The Area, “The club is thrilled to see its players wanting to take their game to the next level and it’s great that their drive and ability has been noticed by selectors.”
“We hope to see even more players achieve this next season.”
“Well done Marauders!” she said.
This family-friendly club that supports the development of its young players is turning heads in the rugby world.
And for all the right reasons.
