The undefeated Giants U/10s with coach.

The Mullumbimby Giants Junior Rugby League finished a good year on a high note when the U/10s won the grandfinal on the weekend.

The team was undefeated throughout the year, taking out the minor premiership, so the win was icing on the cake.

Coach Damon (DJ) Scott has led most of the team since they started playing together as U/7s. It’s a family affair for DJ, coaching his son and two nephews. His sister Chelsea is team manager. The Club is extremely proud of them and the way they play the game.

The club’s other three competitive sides also made it through to the top-five finals series, with the U/12s narrowly missing out on a spot in Saturday’s grand final. 

Our mini league sides from U/6 to U/9s wrapped up their season a few weeks ago. It is so good to see the kids out there having such a good time week after week.

Darcy Irby, U/9s, was awarded the Keeley Farmer Mini League Player of the Year–Best and Fairest Player.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Listening to the truth tellers

A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.
