Rising stars continue to shine


There are positive signs for the future of Singleton Rugby if you know where to look.

When casting the spotlight on the top, the Singleton Bulls’ first grade side enters its final fortnight against the fourth placed Wanderers (away) and second placed Hamilton (home) with a lowly 1-11 winning record.

However not all is doom and gloom.

The Bulls’ second grade side defeated Maitland 29-24 to rectify a heavy 43-5 defeat at Marcelin Park in Round 6.

The club’s under-16 line-up remains on top of the table with a 12-1 record, playing host to the third placed Terrigal Trojans at 10:50am this Saturday.

Even club junior Leo Fragar represented the NSW Country side at Bathurst last month, facing a 12-0 defeat to the Sydney side in the under-14 decider.

The ultimate triumph of the past fortnight took place at school level when the Singleton High School’s Rugby Sevens team the under-14 crown.

The Singleton line-up stood strong in the final against Kotara following earlier triumphs over St Catherine’s Catholic College (25-10), St Joseph’s College (25-20) and Hunter Valley Grammar (25-10).
