Eleven M'bah teams vie for Banana Cup

IT'S hard to believe there are only two more rounds left in the Murwillumbah netball competition and three more remaining at Tweed.

The semi-finals will start in Murwillumbah on September 5, and with the weather this season sensational lately, hopefully it will continue through the finals. (I hope I haven't jinxed it!)
