Report by Jodi Tiver
The last real ‘outback red-dirt’ tournament was held by the Mullewa Polocrosse Club on August 22nd & 23rd with plenty of the Mid-West clubs turning up to play. It was a little smaller in numbers than the last few but the competition was still a good standard and gave some other players a chance at the higher grades. Once again the A Grade final was won by only a single goal and according to sources this came about with a little ‘tap’ to the helmet in the last 5 seconds! But hey, a win is a win and the Greenough Club would most certainly be glad to get another score on the board with the Annual PAWA Champion Club Awards date closing in!
