Local Paper Celebrate Briars Preseason Tour Game
The Braidwood Times ran the match reports from Briars Rugby’s first trial game in Braidwood on 13 March this year (2018).
The Braidwood Redbacks hosted Sydney Club Briars and local rivals Jindabyne in a three way trial on Saturday in preparation for the upcoming rugby season.
In a format where each team would play each other twice over a 15 minute period, the Redbacks came out strongly in their first game against Briars with a two try to nil win, with a try double to flanker Hayden Pengelly. Whilst Jindabyne and Briars shared the points in their two matches, the Redbacks recorded a one try loss to a resurgent Briars in the last.
The Redbacks would like to thank Briars and Jindabyne for making the long trip to Braidwood.
Additionally, thankyou again to all our sponsors, including Braidwood Community Bank and the Braidwood Servicemens Club who allow us to put these events on.
