Inverell Saints led the way this season, showing true grit all the way and getting Inverell noticed in the region as a force to be reckoned with.
It was the first year for the women’s team, but there were no teething problems as they performed brilliantly.
Now a fantastic season has come to an end and the Inverell Saints gave themselves a well-deserved pat on the back during awards night at the Inverell RSM Club.

After a great season, the players will wind down and try other sports. Many are bound to feel a little blue.
The women are heading to Coffs Harbour for a few more adrenaline-charged moments playing Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour.
Some will bide their time playing other sports or apply for the Northern Inland Academy of Sport (NIAS) honing in on their skills until the first week of April 2018 stronger than ever before.
