THE 48th NSW Abo­rig­i­nal Knock­out will be re­mem­bered for fun, fam­ily and fab­u­lous foot­ball high­lighted by two dra­matic fi­nal day matches fea­tur­ing Bourke War­riors, the even­tual win­ners New­cas­tle All Blacks and La Per­ouse Pan­thers.

Women again pro­duced their magic, stun­ning spec­ta­tors with their speed, skill and power. 18 teams played off for the pres­ti­gious ti­tle.

The Welling­ton Wed­getails won through

to the de­cider af­ter a 34-6 win in their first match, 24-0 vic­tory against Mait­land in Round 2, and a com­mand­ing 14-0 semi-fi­nal against the Castlereagh All Blacks.

Un­for­tu­nate in­juries to Brit­tany Naden, who was in­jured while scor­ing a great try, and play­maker Mad­di­son Shaw ended the lo­cal team’s hopes. The New­cas­tle Yowies’ much big­ger com­bi­na­tion took the tro­phy 22-6.

Rikka Lamb from Goodooga, who played with Dubbo CYMS League Tag team last year, scored a try and as­sisted di­rectly in two oth­ers and was in fine form for the Yowies.

It doesn’t get any tougher than this!
