Underdogs make mark on grand final
WE have concluded what has been a long but fantastic year for Tweed Byron Group 18 JRL.
The grand final day at Mullumimby was a huge success and it was good to see many teams winning with underdog status.
The crows witnessed some of the best junior rugby league we have seen all season, with many of the games not decided until the last five minutes of the second half.
To the referees and other match officials, thank you for a job well done. Thank you to all the volunteers in the Tweed Byron Group 18 JRL and the coaching staff of each grade.
