Yamba U13s get set for a successful Bucc's night

YAMBA Buccaneers head into tomorrow's Far North Coast Junior Rugby Union grand final at Lismore on the back of a 91-0 semi-final victory over Ballina.

Hundreds of eager rugby fans braved the cold at Yamba Oval last Friday to watch the whitewash which started with a converted try in the first three minutes and snowballed from there.

Julian Torrens was a standout, dodging and weaving his way to an incredible eight tries. If he received the ball, he scored.

Fearless captain Lochie Clarke scored twice with his bulldozer approach, road runner Joshua Bridges ran away with two, James Marchant one and Joshua Morris also blasted through a hole to score a sneaky try.

The side especially showed their strength in the scrum.

"It's great to see their training put into action from pushing us old guys around the paddock to making it all happen on game day," co-coach Ben Osborne said.

"The same goes for the clean-out crew. They never stopped all night and that's what takes a team to victory."
