Leeton defeat Yanco-Wamoon in under 16s Group 20 decider

The Leeton Greens have secured their second straight premiership after a 36-8 win over local rivals Yanco-Wamoon.

The Greens started the game well and were able to score three quick tries through Kody Eglinton, Kurt Bloomfield and Shane Nikoro before Yanco hit the scoreboard through Oliver Stubberfield and Josh Elworthy.

It was a similar story in the second half with Talalelei Faoa and Fletcher Blackett scoring shortly after the start of the second half before Eglinton scored his second of the game to move his side out to a 30-8 lead and put the game to bed.

A smart play on the final tackle saw Harrison Rudd score under the post just before the final siren to give the side a 26-point win.

Leeton coach Paul McGregor was proud of his boy’s effort

“It is an awesome effort and we have worked really hard for this,” he said.

“They (Yanco) gave us a good game two weeks ago and they came out again today.”
