Oztag finals thrill under the lights

Oztag: The 2018 Stanthorpe Oztag season has come to an end with a series of nail-biting finals last Thursday night.

The seniors played tight games with the Bin Chickens taking the premier position over the A Team in what was a close game in the A mixed.

Meanwhile the Tradies and Ladies were champions over the Main Game in the B mixed division.

Oztag Secretary Peter Burnell said the Thursday night finals were a great conclusion to a fantastic season.

"All the games were great to watch,” he said.

"It was a really good format, we'd probably look at doing it again in the future.”

Most Valuable Play trophies were handed out after the games to players voted for by the referees throughout the 2018

season.

"All the juniors received medallions and anyone who won received a prize,” Burnell said.

Organisers are now looking forward to preparing a team to compete in the 2020 Queensland State Cup which will train in the off season.

"We're looking to get either individuals or teams and are keen for anyone else to talk to.”

"A lot of people approached us and thanked us for the year looking forward for next year.”

With the game attracting more than 300 players this year, Burnell is hoping to recruit new helpers in preparation for next year's season.

"We're looking forward to getting some fresh faces helping out on game night to keep Stanthorpe Oztag in Stanthorpe.”

"It's a good game because everyone from five to 50 can play.”
