01 Nov The Gladstone Rugby Union Goats Show Grit in a Hard Fought Battle Against The Bundaberg Barbarians
In a recent matchup against Bundaberg, the Barbarians secured a hard fought victory with a final score of 10-5 in what proved to be a closely contested and physically demanding game. There was some initial uncertainty regarding how the match would unfold, as the Goats faced a challenge with no available front row players.
Nevertheless, they chose to engage in scrums and their forward pack rose to the occasion, even earning a few crucial penalties for their team.
The coaching staff at GRUFC has offered some insights and comments on the recent performance of the Men’s team against the Bundaberg Barbarians.
“Our captain, Aubre Harmse, who plays at Half Back, earned the title of Man of the Match for our team,” said The GRUFC Staff.
“We believe our players put in an impressive performance, given the challenges of several last minute player withdrawals and the fact that over half of the team members have participated in only two or three games, with some making their debut appearance. We understand that it’s a long season, and our focus is on continuous improvement as we strive to achieve our long term goals.”
Despite the defeat, their perseverance and resilience shone through in the face of challenges, including last minute player withdrawals and limited game experience for many team members. As the Goats continue to work toward their long term goals, they invite potential new members to join their ranks and be part of the GRUFC community.
Training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 PM on the lower fields of Marley Brown, offering the chance to become part of a committed and passionate rugby community, as they focus on continual growth and progress throughout the season.
