SPLOSH! WHACK!!!! It was a rainy, soggy day down in Cairns for the Peninsula
Girls Rugby League trials. Our Douglas District team played 4 games against
teams from as far away as Tully and the Torres Strait. We had a fantastic time
running, tackling and scoring tries on the muddy, rain-soaked fields.
impressed the team selectors with her fearless and ferocious tackling of girls
almost twice her size, and she was selected in the squad of 26 girls to try for
final selection in the Peninsula team today. We wish her the best of luck.
trip was made even better on the way home when Tejay’s mum Tanya bought us all
warm donuts and new socks because our old ones were soggy and soaked with orange
mud. We also stopped at McDonalds for an ice-cream!! Thank you Mr Ryan and Mr
Darryl for taking us down to the trials. It was an enjoyable day and totally
worth feeling a bit sore and bruised today.
