The annual Pilbara Junior Championships in Port Hedland took place last weekend with teams from Newman, Karratha, Tom Price, Broome and Port Hedland entering the two-day event.

Ola said: “There was a good overall standard across the tournament, with some very interesting challenges especially in the younger age groups.

“It was further confirmation that the game is also developing fast in regional areas and players willing to train and play now have better options to do this.

“It will be interesting to see most of these players back in September during the Country Week in Perth and assess them for future Country programs.”
