In a great finish to the season for local junior rugby union, a heroic game from skipper Joshua Hampson saw the Blue Tongues under 10s win their grand final over Wahroonga, while the under 14s did the same to Roseville with Silas Roberto in devastating form. Meanwhile in Suburban Rugby the news wasn't so good. UWS dipped out against St George, and Blue Mountains crashed to Hornsby 13-8 in the major semi.
