As always the fiercest local derby in Suburban Rugby resulted in some hard fought rugby as HAC took on Hawkesbury Valley at McQuade Park. HAC’s 4th Grade were determined to get stuck in and get the day off to a good start. The HAC forwards were determined in both defence and attack setting the platform for the backs out wide. This determination saw HAC come away with the win, final score of HAC 43 defeated Hawkesbury Valley 7.
3rd Grade were keen to continue the good start to the day with the boys looking to get their season back on track and stay in touch with the top 4 teams. Again the forwards laid the foundation for the backs in a physical contest that was dominated by HAC. This saw 3rd Grade achieve their 6th win for the season with the final score of HAC 39 defeated Hawkesbury Valley 7.
2nd Grade saw Hawkesbury Valley determined to make up for their earlier losses, drawing HAC into a physical contest. The HAC forwards were able to withstand the pressure from Valley running in 4 tries for a bonus point win with the final score HAC 31 defeated Hawkesbury Valley 25.
1st Grade was the bitter contest that everyone expected with Valley showing their determination to make up for their defeat in round 1. In a heated contest the first half saw 2 HAC players red carded and the contest even at the half time break. With only 13 men on the field HAC came onto the field in the second half determined to take control of the game. The boys quickly stamped their mark on the game taking control of play and showing why they are at the top of the table in the Clark Cup. The final score HAC 39 defeated Hawkesbury Valley 9.
