Mandurah 27 Southern Lions 17
Southern Lions u16 outmuscled in first half but come back fighting in second half.
Playing the Mandurah Pirates at their new ground, the Lions u16s struggled in the first half, unable to get their hands on the ball and, when they did, did not make good use of it. The half time score was 17-0 to Pirates. However, the second half was a different story, with the Lions staging a remarkable fightback, coming within 10 points of the Pirates’ final score. Southern Lions were able to take the game to the Pirates, with much improved ball retention and general play. Tries were scored by Tyler Boon and Michael Blackburn (2) with Logan Hareb being successful with a conversion.
