News – 6 March 2022

Thank you & congratulations to our Semi Finalists

While wet weather stopped most games on Saturday combined with the pandemics and La Nina we got there. This is an amazing achievement by everyone associated with our Club and Association Leadership.

The only ‘comparable’ period in our history for complexity about getting on the field was between the war years when no competition was run between 1942 and 1945.

Well done.

While Finals glory is special, the amazing contribution from everyone in our Club to complete a largely un-interrupted season is the best result of the season. So well done and thank you to every Team and support crew that played this year irrespective of where you came in the Competition table.
