What a finish to this HUGE season… Fourth and First Grade into the big GRAND FINAL. Needless to say, that our supporters have carried us here and we’ll need you all again this Saturday to get us across the line!

Going back-to-back has been the goal all year and the fact that we’ve got our ticket to the big dance once again, is nothing short of historical brilliance.

The day won’t be the same without you, so make sure you get to North Sydney Oval this Saturday and get amongst it all.
Grand Final Buses:

Fourth Grade Grand Final Supporters Bus – Depart 8:00am (Rat Park) – Return from North Sydney Oval 5:40pm

Grand Final Supporters Bus – Depart 12:30pm (Rat Park) – Return from North Sydney Oval 5:40pm



We encourage people to purchase tickets online to save queuing and to ensure entry into the game as there is a high probability this game will be sold out.

After the match there will be a function for all players, supporters and our local community back at Rat Park.
