Promising start to 2015 Football & Netball

Beautiful evening at Mercury Drive

Our preparation for the 2015 season is progressing well with preseason training now leading into practice matches.

Our first hit out was great, it was a game against Murchison FC where both football and netball were able to apply game style performance into training.

Uncle Wes presented the grounds of our club in fantastic condition and the crowd that gathered was vocal and passionate for both sides (even practice matches are serious!)

Rumba will host Murchison this Saturday afternoon at Mercury drive in our first taste of preseason action.  The evening will include a senior football game, along with a combined netball practice game.  The netball will be starting at 6pm with the football set to start at 6.30pm.

Come down and be part of the action and enjoy the sausage sizzle!

Rumba Seniors take Top of ladder with huge win over Cobram

It was a nice but windy day when Rumbalara headed down to Cobram for the second last match of the home and away season.

The seniors had a big percentage boosting win over Cobram, Rumba 32.18.210 to Cobram 4.5.29! This win helped Rumba take top spot over Finley which also seals a Top 2 spot heading into the finals.
It was an alround great team effort with Coach-player Damian Cupido booting 10 goals and a welcome return for Brad Dick who booted 7 goals.

The Rumba A Grade girls netball went down to a nail biter but Rumba just missed out on the win with Cobram winning 45-43. There were a couple of other close matches in the other Grades but didnt go Rumbas way!

Our last match of the Home and Away season will be played at Rumbalara when we host Nathalia and hopefully all results will go our way!

Round 5 Netball Wrap-Up

A Grade

Even though the win wasn’t ours, the girls should be proud that they maintained a strong attack and continued to work hard in defence. The rain certainly made the game more difficult but A Grade’s performance was steady & positive.

B Grade

B Grade are starting to settle and some good performances, especially from our junior players, are strengthening the team as a whole. Unfortunately we didn’t come away with the win, but the girls demonstrated a strong commitment to finishing out the game.

C Grade

C Grade gave it all they had, and despite the rain making it difficult, there was some great passages of play down the court, however, Tongala were just too strong. Best on to Kathy who shot really well and came out for every centre pass. There was some great defence from Rachael and Sharna. Second best to Krystal.

C Reserve

The girls never gave up and continued to fight, great shooting from Lou and Kathy, and a great game from Karen Kerr. Best on to Danni Armstrong and Second best to Kathy Owen.


U17’s are really starting to improve as a team and get to know each other on court, we still have to work on slowing our game down, but was great to see some of the girls really step up and play their position at 100%. Welcome to Maddie Atkinson who played her first game of netball, she did a great job in WA and WD. Best on went to Diarna Kerr for her game in WA, she did some great feeding into the shooters and applied some great defensive work down the court also, turning the ball over a number of times.


U15’s are improving each week and are starting to play some really good passages of play with all players getting their hands to a few intercepts on the weekend. Best on went to Sara as she was persistent with her defensive work and went in hard for the rebounds. Second best went to Jaz as she played centre for the first time and did extremely well! Well done girls!


Great win by the girls this week, despite the fact that Tongala kept on fighting, it was a great effort from the girls. Best on to Casey for not giving up, fantastic effort, she just kept pushing and giving her all to the point she was going so hard she fell over a seat into a puddle trying to chase the ball! Second best to Tarsie who was on fire with goals and kept on going the entire game, she played excellent in shooter, considering it was a position she didn’t like. Overall, very proud of the entire team, was difficult to best players, the girls must love the rainy weather!


Under 12’s played a great game against Tongala and have really shown big improvements in their skills. Playing in the rain was certainly a tough call for the girls but they soldiered on and did the best they could. Best players for the day were Tamieka and Talia Trimboli. Well done girls…you’re awesome…


Another good game from our girls. We are still getting a bit crowded in the centre because we all want the ball so much! So proud of the girls all putting in 100% each week. Best on: Doretta Ritchie & Tallara Saunders
