Bosco wins the 2020 Val Kearns Shield
Now in its 12th year, the Val Kearns Shield is an annual local under 8's rugby league match between the Bosco Bulldogs and Engadine Dragons. It celebrates the life and contribution to junior rugby league by it's name sake.
As always, the game was played in great spirit with both sportsmanship and friendship being the theme for the day. Every year Mark, Bob and Natalie attend the event and provide words of encouragement as well as the background to the history of Val Kearns and how this annual event came to exist and what the game represents in the Engadine rugby league community. Part of the Kearns family legacy is of course Robbie Kearns who succeeded at the highest level playing for the Cronulla Sharks, Melbourne Storm, NSW and Australian Test sides.
This year the Val Kearns Shield has returned to Bosco following a solid 28-8 victory over Engadine. Congratulations to Hayden Curry from the Bosco Bulldogs who was this years Val Kearns Medal recipient as judged by Bob Kearns.
Today there were no losers, just winners !!! Congratulations to both teams and both clubs for another fantastic Val Kearns Shield. Let's hope this event and the tradition that is represents lives on for many years to come.
