Central Coast Men’s 40s won gold for the fifth year in a row, while their Men’s Opens re-claimed the title – defeating Parramatta, 6-4 in a thrilling Grand Final showdown.

Countdown to the 2024 Senior State Cup

Countdown to the 2024 Senior State Cup

The 2024 Senior State Championships kicks off on Friday 22 March in Coffs Harbour, with 200 teams determined to lay it all on the line for the championship title.

NSW Oztag are set to welcome over three thousand players to Coffs Harbour this week for the long-awaited 2024 Senior State Championships.

The stakes have been raised for the first time in seven years, as players not only compete for a gold medal, but for New South Wales selection ahead of the 2024 State of Origin in September.

As games are taken to another level, NSW Oztag suggests keeping an eye on the following teams. 

Central Coast Men’s 40s will be looking to make it five in a row, having claimed gold every year since 2020.

In Sydney’s South, a pumped Mixed 20s side will be gunning for a three-peat, as will their Men’s 60s.   

Also striving for a third consecutive title is Central Coast’s Women’s 20s and Women’s 40s.

Following a nail-biting Final series in 2023, NSW Oztag anticipate a highly competitive Men’s 20s division. Souths have the potential to go back-to-back this weekend, but the likes of Heathcote, Baulkham Hills and Cronulla will make it no easy feat.

Teams worth keeping an eye on in the premier Opens divisions are:

Women’s Opens: Penrith, Central Coast and ACT

Mixed Opens: Penrith, Parramatta and Sydney City

As for the Men’s Opens division, the question on everybody’s mind is whether Souths can go back-to-back, or will hot contenders – Penrith, Central Coast, and St George stand in their way?

Central Coast will no doubt be looking to follow down the successful path of their juniors and continue their ten-year Club Championship dynasty – awarded to the most successful association across all divisions. However, there will be plenty of worthy competition hoping to end this incredible streak.  

NSW Oztag look forward to welcoming all teams and spectators to the beautiful Coffs Coast, for the highly anticipated Senior State Cup tournament.

Teams are encouraged to book in for their official team photograph with IB Images via their online booking system, which will place them in the priority system for action shots.

Games will commence at 9.30am on Friday. Keep up to date with the live fixtures and ladder via SportsFix.

Livestream will be via the NSW Oztag Facebook page, with coverage kicking off at 8.15am on Sunday 24 March, thanks to Power Productions.

The 2024 Junior State Champions have been crowned following a spectacular three days of Oztag in Coffs Harbour. 

The much-anticipated Junior State Championships 11-17s kicked off on Friday 23 February, which saw a record 325 teams across 14 divisions determined to take home the title.

Sunday’s Finals saw C.ex Stadium come alive with the roar of spectators on the edge of their seats as numerous games resulted in a one-point difference, or came down to exhilarating extra time drop offs.

In torrential rain, skills were put to the test as it became a game of field position, defense and set completion.

However, with New South Wales Origin selection on the table, teams proved even more determined to leave nothing in the tank – giving their all right to the full-time buzzer .

The clinical Baulkham Hills Girls 17s continued their dynasty, defeating ACT 3-0 to secure their eighth gold medal – a remarkable achievement to win every year since Under 10s.

Baulkham Hills Girls 17s – Champions

Following down the same successful path is the Souths Girls 14s, who won their sixth consecutive championship, and Central Coast Boys 13s who made it four in-a-row.

Baulkham Hills Girls 15s put an end to Central Coast’s five-year winning streak, defeating them by two in a thrilling Grand Final showdown.

The Central Coast Boys 11s went through the whole tournament not only undefeated, but without conceding a single point. However, Nepean came out on top when it mattered, beating them 1-0 in the Grand Final.

Central Coast Boys 17s ended their Junior campaign on a high, defeating first-time Grand Finalist, Inner West in a nail-biting 4-3 clash.

Central Coast Boys 17s – Champions

Following a dominant performance at both Junior State Cup tournaments, NSW Oztag are pleased to announce the 2024 NSW Club Champions – on 106 points, Central Coast.

From the Under 9s through to U17s, Central Coast had 17 of their 18 teams qualify for Quarter Finals, 14 made Semis, and nine advanced to the Grand Final.

Of these, six Central Coast teams took home gold – a testament to the players, coaching staff and all involved with the club.

In second place was Souths on 72 points, and in third was Cronulla on 68.

NSW Oztag are set to welcome a record amount teams to Coffs Harbour ahead of the highly anticipated Junior State Championships 11s-17s this weekend.

The NSW Junior State Championships 11s-17s kicks off Friday 23 Feb in Coffs Harbour, with a record 325 teams determined to take home gold.

With teams having trained for close to four months, NSW Oztag anticipate that we are in store for some unbelievable games over the weekend.

For the first time in seven years, players are not only competing for a gold medal, but are also vying for New South Wales selection ahead of the 2024 State of Origin in September.

The stakes have been raised and teams are up for the challenge. Some are looking to go back-to-back, while others are underdogs ready to prove themselves.

The dynasty that is the Baulkham Hills Girls 17s are determined to make Oztag history as they gun for their eighth consecutive championship – having won every year since 2017 (Under 10s).

Looking to make it six in a row is the Souths Girls 14s and Central Coast Girls 15s, who have both claimed gold in their respective divisions every year since 2019.

The Central Coast Boys 13s will be striving for their fourth successive championship title, but as the standard of Oztag continues to heighten every year – there will be plenty of worthy competition striving for glory.

The premier division of our Junior tournaments – the Under 17s, are determined to lay it all on the line for their last year of Juniors. Teams worth keeping an eye on are:
