Did you know:
That the grade teams in the first two rounds have scored 87 tries. The forwards 20 and our backs 67, an average of 10.88 tries per game for each grade.
Tries will take up a bit of F.F & S this week.
Cameron Lawrence we spoke about recently, well Cam managed to score 7 tries against the Emu’s. Could have had 8 but waited under the posts to hand onto prop Will Ridley. A nice gesture, but what he didn’t know was he could of matched Nathan Trist’s 2004 record of most tries in a game in lower grades. But instead he joins John Taylor (7) 1st Grade and Mitch Inman (7) Colts 1st Grade.
Congratulations to Hugh Summerhayes and Eddy King who made their 1st Grade debuts off the bench. In fact three of our bench replacements scored 5 tries between them.
Club records were beaten also at Nepean Rugby Park, with 1st Grade scoring the biggest win 97-0 verses Penrith, (previous best was 2004 89-5) and also the highest ever against any other club.
Our 1st XV scored 15 tries which is equal with 1881 team verses Burwood, the 2004 team (twice in the season) verses Penrith and the 2013 team verses Gordon.
They also beat the to Nil win by 30 pts set back in 2009, which was 67-0.
For the second week in a row, a 1st Grader picked up a hat-trick of tries, this week, it was Full-back, Tim Clements.
Sam Barclay scored the last try of the match in 2nd Grade with less than 5 minutes to go, but little did he know that before that try he was the only back who hadn’t crossed the line in last 76 minutes. However, it was more then that, you see Sam’s try gave 2nd Grade a total of 21 tries for the game. Beating a record set in 1911 verses Glebe 2nd XV, that’s a 107 year old record! They also managed to smash the biggest ever 2nd Grade win, which was set back in 2009 which was 109-0. The new record is now 137-7.
Matt Dowsett (update) scored three more tries this weekend, taking him to 16 tries from past 10 games for SUFC.
Daniel Calvassy, Eddy King, Amos Pogia and Banjo Travers also all went over for hat-tricks.
Nat Tamwoy scored 4 tries from Full-back in 2nd Grade’s record win.
Will Wennerbom is on fire and now is the leading point scorer in the Club on 58 points in two games. Will scored 42 points in 4th Grad’es win, with 4 tries and 11 goals. He had 38 of those by half time, only getting 4 in the 2nd half. Will is now the third highest player in the lower grade records for most points in a game.
We had goalkickers coming out of the woodwork against the Emu’s, in fact 15 players kicked a conversion on Saturday in Grade footy.
The most popular number for tries on the weekend were No.9, No.11 and No.15 all scoring ten tries in the four teams.
Finally, in Super Rugby, Paddy Ryan reached his 100th NSW rep game and is sitting on 98 Super games for the Waratahs.
