Manly Warringah again remain undefeated after another full day of games. On 24 points, they’re well ahead of second and third-placed Wyong District and Lismore on 19 points each. Charlestown has dropped out of fourth place on Day 2, with Gosford moving ahead.

17/U Championships

Manly Warringah have shown their strength not only in the Open Champs division, but also 17/U. They’ve won all 11 games over the first two days to sit in first place, but Illawarra District may pose a threat, as they’re also on 22 points but sit in second place. They’re closely followed by Penrith District in third place and and Newcastle in fourth.

17/U Division 2

There’s been a shuffle of the leaderboard between Day 1 and Day 2, with Hills District dropping from first to second, and Bathurst moving up to grab the top spot at 26 points. Southern Fusion have also moved up to third place, and Ballina is now in the top four with 20 points.

17/U Division 3
