The majority of Minis were away at Tarleton this weekend, the Under 11s played pretty well overall, although the game got a bit scrappy at times, in their 45 – 7 win over a Tarleton side struggling for players – Hoppers lent them a player to make up numbers.
The Under 12s fielded both a Hoppers and a Fireflies team as they visited Waterloo. Hoppers had 3 very close games with Waterloo but just lost out, while the Fireflies improved over the course of their 3 games and showed real determination to run Waterloo close in the 3rd game.
The Under 13s travelled to Waterloo, losing 19-5. After a slow start Hoppers produced a good 2nd half display in difficult windy conditions but could not claw back the Waterloo lead.
The Under 14s beat a Waterloo side at home 35*-5, Waterloo put in a big effort but had no answer to Hoppers speed and strength, Jake scoring 4 tries, excellant kicking from Tom N and all round performance from Ben.
