In front of what was probably the biggest BTL on record,the first grade side made third spot their own in their return to Kentwell Cup ,a 43-26 win over Colleagues providing great entertainment.The boys ran out onto the paddock in style led by Jack Daniels in his amazing 300th first grade game,surely an achievement which will never be beaten,and once the footy was played the mountain goats went about their job ,a subtle mix of power and class and had the opposition blown away by halftime.Ball retention was great,the scrum was awesome,and the backs were on fire.The second half saw the opposition come back,with the ref helping them along,but we had too much firepower.Graham Kondek once again best on field he is certainly in sensational touch,working so well with the likes of Nick O Gorman,while no surprise JD was players player.while the match will be remembered for the huge crowd atmosphere,JDs penaltry try,Krolly just falling short of scoring a great individual try,and the meat pie bagged by Sitiveni,after the Colleagues winger chased him all over the field.

Once again the seconds played some solid Rugby at different stages but couldnt counter the opposition well enough and were well beaten 35-12.Gav Duncan was all class at fullback,while Jadien Cranfield as usual really made his present in the tight stuff,and of course Brad Kenny was solid all day.

The undefeated comp leaders Colleagues had to fight all the way against a gallant Colties before securing a 22-0 victory.Caleb Nicholson in the front row played an awesome game of Rugby,while Patrick Bowler also made a big contribution.
Thirds had to rely on a towering penalty from Issac Junoud to sneak home 23-21.The Blueys at times looked like they were going to run away with things,but just didnt go on with the job,but at least they finished the year with a win.Lachlan Mckenzie was in awesome touch and was by far and away the best on the paddock.

So cruel for the fours being beaten 20-19 by Collegues in a very hard fought match.The second placed visitors had to pull out all stops against a determined Blue Mountains,with try scoring prop sensation Andrew Key once again in great form,while John Antonio was on fire,and grant Skinner scored a great individual try.

The fifths went into the last game of the season with a very rough chance of sneaking in to the semis,but the victory they needed eluded them anyway when they were beaten 33-12.The boys had a dig though,and while the likes of Jordan Ingleton and Shaun Joseph went well.veteran Ash Livingston was a stand out man of the match,and of course Tommy managed a meat pie!.
