Check out what was making news in the sporting world around Tamworth in August, 2017.


“It was basically a try-saving tackle. The Bundarra player was perfect. He pulled up straight away and called for help. He knew it was no good.”

“They realigned it last night. But it’s got to be plated up and that sort of thing. They expect he won’t be able to put weight on it for a minimum of six weeks.”

“I’ve seen a few of the names on the list and have been a bit nervous so I’ve been having a hit once or twice a week for the last few months.”

“We’re confident but we’re not going to go in there [the grand final] cocky.”

“First half was what we’ve been planning to do all year … I told our team we needed to start picking our intensity up, lifting a few cogs. Coming into semi-finals we’re gonna have to really ramp it up.”

“To do what she did over the mile at Randwick on a heavy-10 took a bit out of her – it was one hell of a run.”

“But like I said, I couldn’t be more proud of the guys who put a jersey on, it shows a lot of guts and courage to go out there and play.”

“You even see it at training with the competitive side of them. The young blokes keep a bit of interest [going] among the old fella. It’s really good.”

“It’s a catch 22. The Charity Shield has some importance in it but it’s not always the best players playing. In a competition game, you’ll have all the big guns here.”

“For us, the first 40 was probably the best 40 we’ve put together this year, which is very pleasing.”
