New season fast approaching

Oztag: With rugby league season winding down and that off-season looking a little open, Stanthorpe Oztag is raring to go and looking for new players.

The 2018 competition will start with a visit from Queensland development representatives who will do the rounds of schools, before a come-and-try and information night.

"The development boys will be coming down on the 29th and 30th of this month,” Stanthorpe Oztag co-ordinator John Cobon said.

"On the 30th there will be a come-and-try and information night at 4pm up at Sullivan Oval.”

Oztag is an inclusive sport that accommodates most ages.

"It runs from under-fives right through to seniors. We had over 350 players last year so it was a good season.

"There was everyone from five-year-olds to an over 30s comp as well,” Cobon said.

"In the younger senior levels, we've had players and teams in the 16s and 17s go to the state titles.

"It's a non-contact sport but it's a team sport. Always fun to play with other players and you always meet people.”

As the sport is reliant on rugby league concluding, it is unlikely to start until early September.

"We'll run as per usual Thursday nights from 4pm. All can sign up online now.”
