City Conquer NSW Junior City v Country
The NSW Junior City v Country came to a successful conclusion on Sunday 13 June with City crowned 2021 champions.
After the 2020 event ended in a dead heat between City and Country, it was highly anticipated that this year’s tournament would showcase some quality Oztag on the Central Coast.
Drawn from the Junior State Cup tournaments in February, City Country selection is an opportunity for players to combine with their region’s best and play off for the prestigious championship title
The standard of talent saw the 2021 tournament come down to the wire, with City claiming eight of the 14 titles, and Country claiming six.
City’s success was credit to the Southern City Seahawks who took out six Grand Final wins. They dominated both the Boys and Girls 11s divisions, and claimed victory in the Girls 12s, Boys 15s, Boys 16s and Boys 17s divisions.
The Western City Scorpions also contributed to City’s eight titles, taking home gold in the Boys 12s and Girls 14s divisions.
Southern Country Pride almost equally dominated the tournament, claiming all six of Country’s titles.
While the Northern Country Knights did not manage qualified for three Grand Finals, they did not manage to walk away with gold.
