Stay healthy everyone and we will see you all as soon as we can.

Balmain Touch 2019-2020 summer competitions recently finished on a high.

In the Mixed Division 1 both Grand Finalists had convincing wins the week before in their elimination semi-finals with D-Force proving too good for Young Guns, and TNG 2.0 the winners against Leebryce Lizards.

In what proved to be a very fast and tight grand final, D-Force emerged victors against the young Balmain juniors, TNG 2.0, 9-8.

Balmain Womens' 30s State Cup team

Coach's Last Word - Andrew Windsor

Women’s 30s took on a very tough competition, up against a few teams with years of playing togehther & a galaxy of superstars to call on. Throw in a heavy workload (9 round games) and we were definitely going to get our money's worth.

Friday started with a hard fought loss to the defending premiers Cronulla, then a game vs Mudgee where nothing seemed to go right - an unlucky 3-2 loss there meant the campaign was teetering on the brink. Luckily a Bec...
