May 19 saw the club take to the field in true rugby weather, with the pouring rain testing the commitment of the local supporters.

Despite numbers being slightly down, the Medowie faithful still rallied together to support the club.

In the main game, Medowie were unfortunately defeated against Merewether in a close game 7-11.

After Medowie copped a send off before half time, it turned out that Merewether’s 15 players were just too good for Medowie’s remaining 14.

Medowie Rugby representative, Jackie Murphy, told News Of The Area, “Fair to say we lost that one rather than got beaten, we were physically the better side on the park.”

“We are competition contenders but we need to keep developing our game, be adaptable to conditions and make the decisions that are required for premier rugby.”

“As it comes together, we will shift these competitive losses into comprehensive wins,” she said.

Overall, it was one that got away, but a truly solid effort against the competition leaders and one for the Marauders to be proud of.

May 26 saw Medowie take on Maitland at home, unfortunately coming out with a 13-3 loss.
