One of these teams, the U11 All Stars had a fantastic day at the Mongo Gala day. This annual tournament offers a world cup experience as 16 teams from each age group are placed in pools of four. Three matches in the morning, a skill competition and re-draw over a BBQ lunch, and a further three games in the afternoon. Teams travelled from far and wide to take part. The All Stars opponents included clubs from Terrigal, Newcastle, and Auburn. The games were played in great spirit. At the start of each match the teams entered the field side by side to the strains of a mambo beat, lined up, shook hands, exchanged pennants, and got under way. The games were tough but rewarding and the enhanced bond the players drew will surely pay dividends in the winter months ahead.
