2017 National Touch League Results

SWQ Touch was well represented at the National Touch League tournament held in Coffs Harbour last week with the following 7 teams participating: 

  • Men’s T League
  • Women’s T League
  • Open Mixed A
  • Open Mixed B
  • Women’s 27s
  • Men’s 30s
  • Men’s 40s 

Our Women’s T League were the flag-bearer going through undefeated and claiming the title with an emphatic 6 – 1 win over Sydney Scorpions A. The girls played an exciting brand of touch football which is a credit to them and in particular their coaching staff, Lauren Potter and Clare Giarola. A big thank-you to Michael Baartz for the technical support he provided to the team and to Nicole Ashurst for dong a great job as the team manager. We had one other team make it to the semi-final stage, that being our Men’s 40s who put in an enormous effort only to be beaten 5 – 3 by ACT Raiders who then went on to win the grand final. A great effort by all involved! 

The finishing order for each of our teams was: 

  • Men’s T League  – 9th
  • Women’s T League – 1st
  • Open Mixed A – 5th
  • Open Mixed B – 10th
  • Women’s 27s – 7th
  • Men’s 30s – 8th
  • Men’s 40s – 4th

SWQ Touch would like to thank all of our referees, coaches, managers and players for the time and effort they put in prior to and during this event. I am sure everyone who participated had a great time, made some new friends and learned a little bit more about the game.  We would also like to thank our physios (Allie, Lauren and Hamish) who did a fantastic job looking after our players.
