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


“The Narrabri Rugby Club has been working closely with management from the premises impacted by Sunday’s incident. At this time, 8 players have been stood down from all rugby related activity by the club. That decision will be reviewed upon completion of investigations by Police, until which time the club will make no further comment.”

“Words can’t explain what these boys mean to me. We were stuffed six weeks ago. I did not see us standing here. We all got together at training and sort of got close again and started putting a bit of footy together at the right time of the year. Everything just click.”

“It’s a great feeling. Especially coming from what we started with at the start of the year. A bunch of blokes who didn’t know each other. Come a long way. Looks like we’re in the grand final next week. It was a big effort by the boys. We played well.”

“I’ve spoken with officials from all the clubs and they were all happy with the way the comp was.”

“And I think we’re full of confidence leading into this game [the grand final]. We done our job here and I think we can really turn up and do it next week.”

“I just came back because I wanted to finish back home.”

“But there’s no stars in this team. We’re all just a real good bunch of blokes that love each others’ company and really play for each other. So it’s a pleasure to do it.”

“And we wouldn’t have made the decision had we not thought we were taking Group 4 rugby league in the right direction.”

“As has been the case for every year throughout their dominance you just got to play 80 minutes of football against them.”

“We train as a squad so we're all a part of it. Reserve grade’s out here with us now and the committee’s behind us.”
