Postponed Oztag finals tonight

Oztag: Extreme heat on Sunday caused Oztag organisers to postpone their grand final games until tonight.

Secretary Peter Burnell is hoping to see as many spectators as possible at the games to help encourage the players.

"All teams will be playing this Thursday night, including all the juniors,” Burnell said.

"We'll start from 4pm with the juniors and from 5.30pm the older age groups will start playing.”

After the games there will be a presentation of medals and there will be a free sausage sizzle running throughout the evening for all players.

"We'll have a bar operating when the seniors are playing so people can stick around and enjoy the game and lights.

"It'll be a different atmosphere so we're looking forward to it.”

Although the juniors play a more social game, Burnell said he expected the more competitive senior games to be tight matches.

"It'll be a very fast game and very close I would think,” he said.

"There's going to be some great games because you've got one versus two but you've also got five versus six.

"It should be competitive games all the way through, any team could expect a win.”

He encouraged any parents, siblings and grandparents to come along and cheer on the kids.

However he said it was a good opportunity for anyone interested in playing Oztag to see what the sport was all about.

"See what it's all about and talk to us next year about joining up,” Burnell said. "This is the last opportunity to watch some good games this year.

"Some very good players will be playing this Thursday night.”

Burnell thanked organiser John Cobon, helpers Lesley Burnell and Dale Lawer, Pat McCormick development officers Spencer Jensen and Jake Burnell and the younger referees for bringing the season together.

"Without them the competition wouldn't have happened this year.”

The Oztag games are played across the ovals at the McGlew St sports grounds in Stanthorpe.

Games are free to watch.
