The Bowral Kookaburras Junior Rugby League held a rugby league tournament on Saturday, July 27.
Teams from surrounding areas flocked to Loseby Park to participate.
We had a great day with big crowds starting with the U/6 and U/7's at 8:30 in the morning.
The day finished off at 7:00pm with a final nail biting match which saw the Moss Vale U15/16 team getting up in a thriller over Camden, winning 15 points to 12.
The Kookaburra U/7 team had trained well and had a great time on the field. Their passing and ball handling skills were a delight to watch.

This team will compete in the Bargo Gala day next week.
The Bowral Kookaburra League Tag Girls played extremely well in their match against Mount Annan. Running in a number of tries in a really good display before Mount Annan had a couple of injuries and ran out of troops.
The Bowral girls took the competition points in a much improved performance.
Bowral U/14 boys were very solid in their win over the Camden Rams running out to a score of 46-0
This was a good result for the team leading into the semifinals, with a really good mix of forward power and skillful rugby league on display. Bowral coach Rob Gallina has the team steadily moving along at this time of the year.
Camden reversed that result in the earlier U/13 game defeating a gutsy Bowral side by 46-6. Bowral were down on a few numbers in this game but the boys never gave up.
The score blew out, but it was a great effort. Stand in coach Chris Boggs from TTM Global provided great guidance in the absence of regular coach Chris Shea and thought the team performed really well.
The kookaburra U/12's were also at the wrong end of the scoreboard this week going down 34-0, but also provided the very large crowd with some fantastic junior rugby league. Coach Dan Ismail was proud of the effort as the Picton side is very strong. Well done to all players in a mighty effort.
The Andrew Murdoch coached U/9 squad show great promise for when they move into the competition grade of U /10 next year. Andrew has a number of really good little footy players in his team, so things are looking very promising for them.
Congratulations to all the Moss Vale teams that joined us at Loseby for the tournament.
