After a delayed start to the 2020 season, the Illawarra Junior Rugby Union competition finally kicked off on Sunday morning.
There was plenty of smiles and lots of cheering as matches in all junior grades were played across the region.
The competition was set to get under way several months but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The action continues with round two matches this Sunday.
Mercuryphotographer Anna Warr was out and about to grab action shots from round one. To purchase photos, call 4221 22 65.
