Well done to Ty Jackson, Kobe Stranks-Rose, Hunter Weaver and Fletcher Sefton for winning for Ngongotaha the U12 final. All played well in a fast-paced game with lots of ball being distributed out to the wings from a strong forward effort. The play of the game was a pass on his 10-metre mark, just after half time, from Ty down the blindside to his wing who used his pace to score. Congratulations also to Rome Beazley whose U9 team won their final.
