The Forster-Tuncurry Hawks travelled to Wauchope to play the Blues on Sunday afternoon.
The girls’ league tag went down in a very close contest 14-12.
The under 18s had a comfortable win 20-4 but could have won by much more.
Reserve grade were well beaten 32-4 although the second half was an even contest.
First grade started well inspired by coach Phil Adamson pulling on the boots.
In a close first half the Hawks went in to the break, down 14-6 but were unlucky not to have gone in even.
A quick first half try by the Blues was not what the Hawks needed, this was shortly followed by the experienced and in-form Chris Simon being sent from the field for a high tackle.
Ultimately the Hawks were exposed through the Blues’ speed and agility as the game opened up in the second half with Wauchope running out comfortable winners 50-6.
Next weekend the Hawks is holding their annual family day on the Saturday at Harry Elliot oval with junior games starting in the morning culminating a first grade kick off at 5.30pm against the Wingham Tigers.
There will be a jumping castle and face painting for the kids as well as the young ones playing at half time in the reserve and main games.
A reunion of the 1998 premiership winning first and under 18 sides and reserve grand finalists will also be held at the northern end of the ground.

This should be a big day for Forster-Tuncurry and organisers hope to see everyone support it.
