The Score Raiders had their first two matches of the year on Sunday, taking on City NSW ID at Seiffert Oval.

In what was a great morning of action, players from both sides thoroughly enjoyed being back on the field and playing some footy once again.

Game one saw plenty of good footy, with both teams sharing the ball around and everyone getting a run. The City NSW side ran in six tries, while the Score Raiders scored four tries of their own, with the final score a tight 28-22.

Victor the Viking made a special appearance half-way through the game, much to the delight of all the players and crowd.

Game two also saw many exciting tries, some great runs, and some crucial tags. City NSW ID scored seven tries to the Score Raiders two, but the scoreboard didn’t matter as all players gave their best efforts and enjoyed being able to play their first match of the year.

After the games, Score Raiders coach Eilish Winbank said that she was so proud of her team and grateful they could even play a match.

“They had such an awesome time and it was so great for the team to come from Sydney, they were great.

“With everything going on in the world at the moment we didn’t think we would get a game this year but we did and it was great.”

Score Raiders player David Campion was happy to be back on the field and playing with his teammates.

“It was pretty good out there, the result didn’t go our way today which is a bit disappointing but it was still a lot of fun.”
