The Scone Under 10s players who battled it out against each other in the grand final on the weekend.

The victorious Scone Under 11s Blue team.

Scone was well represented with the Under 10s an all-out Scone affair with the Whites taking on the Blues.

This game was an absolute clanger with a split hair between them, with the score a tense 12 to 6 at half time.

With both coaches delivering stirring halftime speeches it was the Whites who took advantage of a Blue’s mistake when heading to the try line, to run the full length of the field to change the tempo of the game to 18 to 6.

With relentless hard running from the Blue’s Brady Roser, who inspired all his teammates including ever improving Bailey Kane, allowed some crafty direction from Callum Dowell – and the Blues would never give up.

It took some individual magic from White’s speed machine Riley Pennell to cross over to take the game away from the Blues.

Riley crossed for four tries and was ably backed by captain courageous Aajay Watts and Charlie Richardson.

Straight after the game, it was pleasing as a club to see how these boys re-united as a group to congratulate each other.

The White’s manager Kai Watts said it was a great game and the boys should be pleased of their efforts in season 2015.

Men of the matches were White’s Riley Pennell and Blue’s Brady Roser.

As the dust settled on the Under 10s thriller the crowd regathered as the Scone Under 11s Blues braced for a tough battle with the minor premiers Aberdeen Tigers.

This game did not disappoint with a tough tense game lasting the full game.

Scone skipped to an early lead from a nice backline movement, but Aberdeen never gave up continually locking the scores at every opportunity.

Scores were locked right until the final minutes when the Blues crossed and calmly slotted the goal to claim back to back titles 18 to 12.

Coach Pete Warden praised all players on an all-round team effort with Ashton Frost taking Man of the Match honours.

With the season now finished we move straight into the presentation this Saturday at 10.30am at Scone Sporties, with all players receiving a sausage sizzle lunch.

The bistro will be open for all families to enjoy.

The club Annual General Meeting will also be held Saturday at 1.30pm for all to attend.

The club thanks all players and volunteers who assisted throughout the year and lets all come together this Saturday to cap it all off.
