The Boys who are reigning National Champions 2022 made another step forward to retaining their title as they booked their place in the finals with only 48 hours notice..
The team were originally eliminated from the tournament in the Northern Regional finals comming second.
They then got a message on Thursday night ( 15th).inviting them back in with two ither teams due to a few teams having to drop out. So as a late wildcard and with no preparation the boys turned it around with their second bite of the prize.
The u16s girls were also Victorious after winning their group and also go through to the finals.
