Another weekend of Junior Representative action has come to a close, with our Tarsha Gale Cup side finally wrapping up a deserved minor premiership.
While it was good news for the under 19 girls, it was a mixed weekend for our Junior sides, with an SG Ball draw the only points taken away from the weekend.
Here's how all our teams faired.
Knights 26 (Radzievic, Kuru, Jones, Ryan, Butler) drew with Bulldogs 26
The SG Ball season came to a thrilling conclusion on Saturday, with the Knights holding the 2nd placed Bulldogs to a nail-biting 26-all draw.
There were impressive performances across the park from under 19s who fought hard from the opening whistle against the Dogs, who were themselves fighting for a minor premiership.
While they didn't manage to hang on to a victory, coach Scott Dureau can be proud of the effort his side made against the competition heavy-weights and will have plenty to build on heading into 2022.

Knights 18 (Trapman, Morris, Braizer) def. by Bulldogs 22
Our Tarsha Gale Cup team's seven game winning streak came to an abrupt end, going down in a narrow four point loss to the Bulldogs.
It was a new-look Knights team taking the field for their final regular season game, with the likes of halfback Tamika Bull, back-rower Kayla Waldron and substitute Bianca Blackhall featuring despite not being named on Tuesday afternoon.
Despite the new look team, the Knights fought hard and were ultimately unlucky not to come away with the points.
While they may have lost on the day, other results from across the league saw the Knights wrap up the minor premiership after winning seven of their eight matches.
The girls will now enjoy a well-earned week off while the rest of the competition plays a washout round before the finals kick off the following week.
Knights 20 (Ferguson 2, Linnane, Sharpe) def. by Bulldogs 26
It was a similar tale for Mark O'Meley's men on Saturday afternoon, with the side going down 26-20 in a tight affair at Maitland Sports Ground.
Another double to live-wire centre Ethan Ferguson had the Knights right in the contest heading into the closing stages, however the Dogs did just enough to clinch a crucial two points.
While the loss was disappointing, the team are still a chance of playing finals. Season 2021 only sees the top 6 play finals and the Harold Matthews team currently hold 6th spot.
The team will now have the week off as the rest of the competition plays their catch-up game, with the finals to kick off the following week.
