Group Seven under 18s nine-a-side competition

THE Group Seven young guns provided the perfect start to the  inaugural All-Stars carnival on Saturday at Rugby Park, South Nowra.

The under 18s players took part in a nine-a-side competition and they tore into each other.

In the final Albion Park managed to defeat Milton-Ulladulla 8-4 in what was a tense and gritty end to the competition.

Many great tries were scored and many top class matches played on the day.

It look like Group Seven has a stack of promising players coming up the ranks.

It would not be a surprise to see some of these under 18s players force their way into first grade this season.

While attack was the name of the game - some of the defence was brutal and many players would be nursing a few bumps and bruises after this event.
