Round 5 Wrap up

Axemen Vs Coffs Harbour Comets

In a grueling match played in terrible, wet conditions we were unlucky not to come away with the win. The first edition of the Ken Orr Memorial Shield live up to expectations with a hard fought match and only a 6 point margin in both First and Reserve grade.

The family fun day was also a success with the jumping castle kindly donated by Absolute Party Hire a hit and also half and full time games played with some great prizes from Wendy’s Coffs Central and Poolwerx Coffs Harbour

Reserves lost 6 – 12

Firsts lost 8 – 14


Round 4 Wrap up

Axemen vs Rebels


Round 4 of 2015 saw the reserve grade side continue their strong start to the season by winning their 3rd game in a row. Against a very tough opponent pegged to be one of the favourites for the group 2 premiership the Axemen held onto a 1st half lead following a devastating injury to a young and very talented Rebel player to close out the match in the dying minutes.

1st grade had a tough start to the match with too many points against them in the 1st half. They fought back hard in the 2nd and showed much better form to reduce the deficit to 22 points. Unfortunately our halves combination were both injured during the 2nd half impacting heavily on the final outcome.

Reserves won 22 – 16

Firsts lost 30 – 52


Round 3 wrap up

Vs Macksville @ the Coramba Sportsground

A fantastic jump out of the gates for reserve grade saw an early lead that Macksville were unable to to re-gather control.

Unfortunately we couldn’t transfer this to the first grade side with Macksville proving too strong in attack.

 Reserve Grade 44 – 26

First Grade 20 – 36

Round 2 Wrap-up

Axemen vs Magpies

Following heavy rain and very tricky conditions in the Bellinger Valley, battling performances in both grades to overcome the weather and tough opposition today.

This has been a very promising start to the season for the Axemen and we look forward to continuing our growth over the coming weeks.

Reserves won 34-4
Firsts won 28-18

Round 1 Wrap up

Axemen vs Ghosts

Round 1 of 2015 saw the 2014 premiers the Garfton Ghosts come up against the Axemen in what was considered by some an easy 2 points for the Ghosts however the massive efforts of the players and coaching staff in the off season transferred to the field with the Axemen going into the halftime break ahead.

Unfortunately we weren’t able to continue the strong start and the Ghosts came away with the victory, but with the help one of the most exciting a positively vocal crowds of recent times, the Axemen showed the competitive strength developed over the pre-season.

Reserves lost 28 – 10

Firsts lost 30 – 22
