BEGA Minor Rugby League Football Club will be represented by three teams when the major semi-finals  get underway tomorrow at Eden. 

Play starts at George Brown Memorial Oval, Eden, from 9am for the under 10s. 

A club spokesperson said it will be a  challenge to take on the in-form Merimbula-Pambula Bulldogs. 

“Both teams won a game each in the regular season, so the major semi should be a close game,” the spokesperson said. 

A solid defensive effort will be a must for the Roosters, while a number of the Bega boys can lead the attack. 

The under 14s will take on the Eden Tigers at 11.40am.

The Roosters finished as minor premiers and are a favourite to overcome the Tigers. 

The spokesperson was confident the Roosters could bring home the trophy despite an injury. 

“With Callum out, Bega will be looking for big games from Blake, Keith, Ken and Tom.

“With a solid team effort they should be able to come through with the goods.”

The headline match of the day will be the under 16s, where the Roosters will meet the well-drilled Moruya Sharks. 

Unfortunately for Bega, Declan Bower-Scott is out with a season-ending injury. 

The boys will need to be at their best to score a win, with the game starting at 2pm. 

Meanwhile, the junior league-tag girls team has advanced to the preliminary final after a forfeit from Moruya. 

The club wished its teams luck in their games tomorrow.
