Sid Harvey dives over for the first try of the game in the Narrabri Blue Boars under-14 side’s win against Central Eastwood at Dangar Park on Saturday.

The Narrabri Rugby Club hosted an action-packed day of rugby union at Dangar Park on Saturday.

The Blue Boars played seven games on the day, four of which they won.

In the main game Narrabri’s first XV took on the Scone Brumbies.

It converted a 27-3 half time lead into a 51-8 victory.

In his return to the side from injury Matt McDonnell bagged a double, while the other five tries were shared evenly between Beau Brummell, Will Morley, Jake Packer, Callum Styles and James Albert.

In second grade Narrabri piled on 74 unanswered points in its biggest win of the 2018 campaign to remain at the top of the table.

Luke Tuckey crossed for three tries, Matt Nott, Lachlan Burtenshaw, Kye Marshall and Dean Hancock all bagged doubles and James Thomas crossed once.

In the women’s sevens competition Narrabri won one of its two games.

In the first clash between the Blue Boars and the Brumbies the home side trailed 5-0 early before winning the game 33-5.

April Smith scored a hat trick and kicked four conversions in that game.

Teammate Hayley Lang crossed for Narrabri’s other two tries.

In a much closer second game the visitors were victorious 10-7.

Emma Marvell scored Narrabri’s only try of the game, and Smith converted from right in front.

There were three junior matches played on the day.

Narrabri welcomed Sydney club Central Eastwood to town, who travelled with 110 players, coaches and supporters.

Narrabri was victorious in one of those games.

The Blue Boars under-14s defeated the visitors 26-12, inspired by a Gus Smith hat trick.

Joey Fowler kicked three conversions, and fantastically set up the first try of the match with a pinpoint cross-field kick to Sid Harvey who took the catch and dived over to open the scoring.

Central Eastwood was victorious in under-10s and under-12s.
