Can't touch Breakaways

BREAKAWAYS beat Can't Touch It by one try in the A-grade mixed grand final of Warwick touch rugby on Saturday night.

The lead changed hands many times throughout the game.

Jason Steketee won player of the match after a stellar performance for Breakaways.

Byrne Auto scored an 8-5 victory against Bluechip in the A-grade men's grand final.

Early in the game, Byrne Auto led 3-1 and never let Bluechip back in the game.

Byrne Auto team organiser Adam Byrne was player of the final.

Isaac Chaffey was player of the final as Comets scored a whitewash win against Mrs Chuck Norris in the A-grade women's/junior grand final.

The Comets team was all juniors who are allowed to play in the women's competition if under 14 years of age at the start of the season.

Most of the Comets team members are budding rugby league stars with Chaffey already one of a number of team members playing representative footy.

In men's B-grade, Assumption College beat Bears with South Queensland Country cricket representative and athletics star Pat Gribbin showing he is no slouch with a touch football to win player of the final.

In the B-grade women's/junior grand final, the Bella Hoffman-captained Hoffy's Gang beat Olsen's Produce 8-6.

In mixed B-grade, Tops Off beat DC8s by one try in a hard-fought game.

Olsen's Produce made it one from two on the night with victory against Bundy Bears in the C-grade mixed grand final.

Joe Cook was player of the final.

Warriors beat Baguley Generals in D-grade.

Warwick Touch Association secretary Tanya Wright said the Saturday afternoon and evening format for grand finals was a great success.

"There was a lot more support for team members from parents on a weekend compared to our previous weeknight format," Wright said.

"We are grateful to association vice-president Grant Lollback from Allora Butchery who donated the meat for a free sausage sizzle for all players and supporters all night."

The first season for 2012 will start at the beginning of school next year.

The association is hoping to select Warwick representative teams for next year's National Touch Rugby Association Queensland trials in late March in Rockhampton.

Queensland teams selected in Rockhampton will play in the annual State of Origin series against New South Wales at Coffs Harbour on July 6-7.

Australian teams will be selected after the State of Origin series to play New Zealand and Oceania teams at the Gold Coast at a date to be determined.

Players keen to nominate for selection in Warwick teams are asked to see a member of the association executive to indicate their interest or email the association.
