The Sunwolves created history today, as they crushed the Reds 63-28 in a try-fest at Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium. 

The home side ran in six tries to the visitors’ four, but it was a stand-out performance by the Sunwolves’ fly-half, Hayden Parker that set the two teams apart. 

Parker hit a team record 36 points with seven penalties, five conversions and a five-pointer while expertly marshaling his troops and constantly driving the opposition back with accurate tactical kicking.

In the latest and most challenging stop of his career, quarterback Jared Stegman at least knows he won't need to worry about having to perform menial tasks or encounter certain disruptions at practice.

"We'd have to mow the field before we practice, and we'd have kangaroos running and interrupting practice. One time there was a koala - I've never seen a koala run, but it came straight through our practice."
