THE Karuah Roos took on the Raymond Terrace Magpies at Lakeside Sporting Complex on Saturday, in an entertaining game full of passion, hard hits and great runs by both teams.

It was hot on and off the field, and the Magpies scored first to take a 4/0 lead, before Jack Bills crossed the line for the Roos to equal the score at 4 all.

Terrace then scored two more tries to take the score to 14/4.

Jack Bills then crossed the line again for his second try and Sam Croese converted to take the score to 14/10.

The Magpies scored another converted try before half time to extend their lead to 20/10.

The second half saw the Magpies convert two more tries to take the score to 32/10.

Half way into the second half Jon-Roy Clarke scored for the Roos.

Sam Croese converted to take the score to 32/16.

With under 10 minutes to go Adam Crampton scored for the Roos to take the final score to 32/20 to Karuah.

Saturday marked a special milestone for Karuah Roos player Tim Johnson, who played his 100th game for the Club.

Tim was one of the starting team back in 2013 when the Roos came back into the N&H CRL Comp.

He is also a Life Member of KRLFC.

He has had his fair share of injuries across that time, breaking his nose a couple of times in action for the Club.

He has certainly bled for the mighty Red and White.

Well done and congratulations Tim.

Game day Sponsors were Karuah Landscaping Supplies and the Morten Family.
