Redfern All Blacks win with local Touchies
WELLINGTON junior Millie Mills’s second year playing with the Redfern All Blacks at the National Indigenous Championships brought with it a winner’s medal. Millie’s team won the Under-16s against Awabakal Breakaways 4-1.
The Koori Kama Young Guns made up of locals from the Wellington touch nursery also downed Awabakal to take the 14s title 6-2.
The other three grades went to Watch The Feet (WTF) from Queensland. The Men were led by State of Origin Scott Prince who made it back-to-back titles, winning 6-4 against the Castlereagh All Blacks.
WTF defeated Nigel’s Warriors 7-1 to claim the Women’s trophy. The side included the Shaw twins whose family still live in Wellington.
The third annual Quit B Fit Indigenous Knockout was a huge success with 29 teams participating. It is hoped that the November weekend will be locked in for future years to allow clubs and teams from right across Australia to make preparations.
Dubbo Touch Life member Krystal Laughton was one of the top class referees.
