Radford Sharks are on fire with teamwork and sportsmanship shining through
Congratulations to the Radford Sharks U13 Mixed OzTag team with their 10-7 win in the Round 5 Monday night Nicholls competition. It was a hard-fought game with great team work. The win was all the more impressive, with great play by several players new to the sport. Their ball-handling skills and footwork are really improving. Well done to Jeff (4), and one each for Mia, Lizzy, Sunny and Jesse for scoring tries, and to everyone for great teamwork and tagging. There were also a couple of attempted tries which were really exciting.
