It was a perfect day for rugby on Sunday when the Cougars hosted the Murray River Warriors for their first home game of the season.
Hoping for another win making it three from three, the Cougar ladies were up first.
The girls took control of the game early and scored first but were unsuccessful in converting.
The Warriors retaliated with two tries in the first half.
The Cougars came back strong scoring twice in the second half but weren’t able to stop the Warriors from getting two more tries.
The Warriors took the win, with the final score being 20-12.
Tries were scored by Molly Brosnan and Sam Price.
Cougars - men
The boys were next, hoping to come back from last week’s loss.
It was an intense game with tensions running high.
The Cougars scored and converted twice in the first half with the Warriors crossing the line four times.
The boys continued to fight but unfortunately, the Warriors were too strong and came away with the win, 44-16.
Tries awarded too: Calvin Tautari, Bailey Muras and Matty Williams.
