This week's feature team is the mighty under 9s, coached by Eddie Moore.

The under 9s turned up not knowing what to expect. With a few players missing the team faced a bigger Blue Heelers side and were keen to get the game underway.

Both coaches agreed to play 7-a-side. Bombala were first to score but the Junior Devils responded and attacked well.

To the surprise of Moore, another player was found and was keen to help out.

Within minutes of being on the field, the gun player scored an almost length of the field try in a great solo effort. Although the Blue Heelers were a much bigger and stronger team the Devils were not going to be intimidated. The Devils were happy to go home with a hard fought 36-16 win.
