NSW Senior State Championships – An Annual Success
The 2021 NSW Senior State Championships has come to a successful conclusion after three days of high-quality Oztag on the Coffs Coast.
The annual tournament kicked off on Friday 14 May and welcomed a tremendous 219 teams to Coffs Harbour – well-prepared and determined to take out the Championship.
Segregated between two venues, C.ex Stadium and Geoff King Oval, over 3,500 players took to the field to lay their months of training on the line, unveiling a new level of brilliance.
The quality of Oztag heightens every year; evident in how close the qualifying games were. Spectators sat on the edge of their seat as many games had a one-point difference or came down to an exhilarating extra time drop off in Finals.
The standard is credit to the exhibition of speed and skill, and the game’s development as young players continue to filter through the system – their transition from Juniors, to Under 20s and then Opens over the years ensures the game’s flair continues to prosper.
Below are the 2021 NSW Senior State Cup Grand Final results. Congratulations to all teams on an exceptional display of talent, particularly the crowned Champions.
