A COOL winter's Saturday saw mixed results for the Nowra Junior Warriors during round 12.
Lyrebird Park hosted five home teams, and while the playing surface looked perfect, it did not provide the wins all teams were seeking.
A tough round for many teams playing top of the table opposition, the game plan remained the same and the consistent Warrior 100 per cent effort still entertained the loyal supporters.
The club’s 50th year anniversary celebration day is only two weeks away.
A Back to Lyrebird Park Day will be held in conjunction with four home ground games on August 2 starting at 9am to about 2pm.

Match of the round
THE Nowra Warriors Under 8 Wallabies had a fantastic win over Batemans Bay 42-24 during round 12.
The cool weather took its toll early on in the game with the Warriors not playing to their full potential.
The game score was evenly balanced throughout most of the game with the Warriors finally thawing out to take the win in the last third of the game.
The overall win was built on solid defensive whole team effort.
Standout defenders included Sam Chittleborough, Cohen Langlo, Logan Easton and Chase Mumberson.
The defence also paved the way for some outstanding tries scored mostly within the last third of the game.
Congratulations to try scorers Ryan Walker, Hugh Regan, Isaiah Falzon and Jack Langford.
Coaches Chris Regan and Clint Langford agree it was one of their best team efforts of the season.
Thanks must also be given to the backup u9 players for helping out the u10 Warriors in round 12.
Your club support and warrior spirit is most appreciated.
