Although New Norfolk was defeated, it was a much improved team effort. All of the boys contributed in some way at various stages of the game. Aiden Russell provided many opportunities with his run out of the centre. Dylan Verasdonck in his first game for the team was also a fine contributor. Keep up the good effort boys. In the next round New Norfolk has the bye.

With the Under 15s A and B divisisons now playing each other over five rounds (Round 1 cancelled) New Norfolk travelled to Glenorchy and was given a football lesson by a more determined and polished Glenorchy outfit. The Eagles played some good football in patches, but were out-played in each of the four quarters. Jakob Triffitt and Jacob Picken gave their all for the Eagles with strong marking and kicking around the big KGV Oval. Bradley Chaplin was his usual best down back, as were Brett Hodge and Ryan Wakefield.
Coach Josh Clifford praised the backline for their efforts. Mentions must go to Zak Booth who gives away plenty in height, but nothing in determination and this showed when he chased down three Glenorchy opponents and then came away with the footy. Daniel Browning showed climpses of the good footy he is capable off. In the end the young Eagles went down by 71 points. This is the team’s first loss this season. In Round 9 on June 24 New Norfolk Under 15s have the bye.
UNDER 16: New Norfolk 10.10 (70) d North Hobart 10.8 (68) at Tynwald Park. Goals - NN: Brad Ransley 3, Josh Rowlands 2, Jacob Daley, Jordan Hayden, Brandon King, Blaise Reed, James Webb; Best: Aidan Pearton, Daniel Coppleman, Jordan Hayden, Tyron Rainbird, Tyler Purdon, Brad Ransley.
New Norfolk Under 16s had a great win over the previously unbeaten North Hobart on Sunday at Tynwald Park. The Demons started with guns blazing in the first half but the Eagles came back and hit the front going into the last change. The boys responded well to coach Dean King at half time where he demanded that they keep on applying pressure and the hard work would pay off.
With a solid defence led by Daniel Coppleman and hard work from Jordan Hayden and company in the midfield it was then finished off with great goals from Brad Ransley, Brandon King and Tyron Rainbird in an exciting last quarter. The boys all played a great game and look forward to their next challenge in playing Huonville at Boyer at noon on June 17 after the school holiday break.
