Under 17’s Parkes Boars game against Forbes Platypi was a hard battle with Forbes leading 29-7 at half time. They continued their dominance, but the Parkes boys never gave up even though they only had 12 play- ers on the day.
The under 15’s Parkes Boars travelled to Narromine on Saturday to take on the Dub- bo Blues. The Parkes boys joined up with players from Narromine Gorillas for the first time. The boys had not trained together and the game started at a frenzied pace. Parkes played with great intensity, but Dubbo man- aged to put the first try on the board and ended up winning 36-0.
A very young Parkes U13 side travelled to Orange to take on the juggernaut Or- ange Emus with a notable size difference between the two sides. Although Emus opened the first half scoring, Jayden “Pow- erhouse” Pope scored first for the Boars. At half time the score was 12 all.
Emus took advantage of some weak de- fence and took the score to 24 to 22 with only a few minutes to go. Emus were hot on the attack again when Tyler Yeo saw a steal and a quick pass wide to Malakai Folau who scored in the corner. Parkes held on for the win 29 – 22.
