The under-18s played Southern Lions away at Cockburn. With a much needed 20-12 win, they pushed up to fourth on the competition ladder.

Forwards dominated the game from the first whistle, and the backs showed their skills in both attack and defence.

The three senior teams played University of WA and the third grade team had the first game of the day. Another much needed 15 -7 win pushed it from second last on the ladder to fifth.

The second grade team kicked off next, running on the field looking for another win. After a scrappy first half, they finally found some form to come away with a 28-10 win, which pushed the team back up to fourth on the ladder.

The first grade team finished off the day with a huge 99-0 win over a disappointing UWA. There where plenty of skills on show from the Pirates and this was the second biggest win of the club’s history.

However, Nolan Grace did create some club history by scoring five tries in one game, passing the previous record of four tries shared by Dougie Ellis and Kevin Williams.

All four teams are at home next Sunday, the under- 18s kicking off first at 11:40am
