For Round 7 of the Group 16 Minor Rugby League Season, the Narooma Devils Junior Rugby League club travelled south to face the Bega Roosters on their home turf. This week, our feature team is the mighty under 7s reds, coached by Michael Longbottom.
Lewis Durnan - Lewis is enjoying his first year with this team, he is a quiet and well behaved boy who tries his hardest when running the ball and tackling. Lewis also loves training.
Declan Moffatt-Babbidge - Declan is a big strong boy and is a very fast runner, when he gets it right he is one of the best tacklers, Declan is also showing some great leadership qualities.
Charlie Longbottom- The complete footballer when he wants to be, Charlie is a very strong ball runner and tackler and scores plenty of tries. Charlie is one of our leading try scorers , he loves his coach very much.
Kyan Drew - Kyan is really enjoying his second year in Rugby League and has picked up the skills of the game very well. Kyan is a tough kid and will be an enforcer when he gets older.
Mitchell Everson - Mitchell is in his first year of the game and is a big strong player who loves to run the ball straight and hard , at times he also has moves like a halfback.
D.J. Rotumah - D.J. Has really come out of his shell this year , he is a devastating ball runner with a great fend and has scored some "length of the field" tries. D.J. never lets the opposition team intimidate him or his team mates.
Harry White - Don't let size fool you, this kid is the littlest on our team but he has blistering speed and can tackle anyone that runs at him or around him, and believe me not many can get around him. Coach Michael just loves watching this kid play!
Neyo Stewart - Neyo is another in his first year of Rugby League, he loves running with the ball and also loves getting involved in tackling. Neyo always has a smile on his face especially when he is running with the ball and scoring tries.
Coach Michael has said that this group of kids are developing into really good Rugby League players, and it is a pleasure to coach a group who love their footy so much.
