Forest 3.6.2017

Once again it wasnt pretty,but the end result was achieved at a wet,windy,and freezing Mellwood Oval as the Blueys edged out Forest 19-12 to make it to the halfway mark of the season in second spot on the ladder.Once again the Mountains pack was battered by injury but stood tall against a tough and motivated home side pack,and showed tremendous courage and application in the last five minutes in particular ,to score a crucial win.Everything went Forests way in the first twenty minutes,but eventually the Blueys fought back through a Nick O Gorman try to make it 7-7 at the break,Forests scored first in the second spell,and then with the match in the balance first Jack,then Brendon scored tries from kicks to make sure the points went to Mountains.Pete Richey was back at his brilliant best,Danny Kroll was his usual brilliant self,while Turtle and Millsy toiled hard all day up front.

Seconds played the majority of the game a man down and that factor plus a Forest side that seemed to lift were to cost the team dearly in a suprise 25-8 loss.For the second week in a row Grant Prior tore the opposition apart,Lachlan Mckenzie was sound,but it was young colts prop Jared Cremona who was outstanding,and he along with the likes of Luke Ruttley were  heartening highlights of an otherwise forgettable game.Colts could only feel frustration going down 17-5,in a match in which the man in white certainly had it in for them,but there were still plenty of positives,with big games from Harrison New, Finn Otoole,Liam Frank,and another stirling dispaly up front from Alex OGorman.

Thirds powered their way into the top four with a 41-5 victory.The forwards laid the foundation for the big win,Issac Junoud was sensational all day with his powerhouse play and Rugby skills smashing the morale of the home team.Meanwhile Grant Skinner,Adam Simpson,and Tom Teuma all scored doubles,while Ian Docherty was strong all day out wide.

Fourths kicked off the day and impressed going down just 12-7 to the competition leaders despite having to play a lot of the game one man down after  red card.Steve Lenoci no suprise was the best player on the field while Nick Richardson and Taylor Brown also made strong contributions.
