PICTURE perfect conditions at Lyrebird Park greeted players and fans alike during the last round of Group Seven Junior Rugby League.
The under 15 Warriors took on the Stingrays in an evenly contested first game of the 2021 season.
The Nowra Warriors had a slight lead at half-time but dropped their game with simple mistakes early in the second half.
To the Warriors credit, a comeback saw them come close to stealing the game within the last two minutes, thanks to a sideline try attempt by Jake Wallis.
He was unfortunately unsuccessful and the Warriors were defeated by two points.
A very entertaining game in defence and attack.
This round, the club's home ground Lyrebird Park will be hosting two games.
Good luck to all teams playing this weekend.
