Tamworth Boys 20s win maiden NSW State Cup title

Tamworth Boys 20s have broken through to win their maiden NSW State Cup title, taking out the division two final on Sunday in Coffs Harbour.

After a tight start, the Taipans showed their class in the second half and raced away to claim a 5-2 victory over Baulkham Hills. 

“It’s great to finally win a State Cup, we’ve come close before but never quite got there so it’s good to get the monkey off our back,” Tamworth captain Jackson Shape told Oztag Australia. 

“We added a few young guys to the group this year and they added a lot. The win will give us all plenty of confidence that we can match it with all the other teams.”

Sharpe said the side would happily move up into the division one tournament next year.

“We’d probably prefer to play in div one. After this I think we’ll all have the confidence to take on the best teams next year.”

Sharpe said Oztag is going from strength to strength in the Country Music captain of Australia. 

“Oztag is huge in Tamworth. I think we’ve got something like 180 teams playing seniors up here and it’s just getting bigger and bigger each year.”

After a wet Saturday, the conditions were perfect on Sunday as the grand finals began at C.ex International Stadium. 

All matches on field one will be live streamed via the Oztag website.
