On Day 1 of NTL 2019, touch footballers from all over the country were thrilled to be the first to try the fresh fields at the newly developed C.ex Coffs International Stadium.
In the first game on field one, the Men’s Open SA Roosters took an excellent 6-2 win over the Scorps MOB team, though they couldn’t match it in games against the Sharks MOAs and Rebels MOAs, who are sitting first and second, respectively, in their pool at the end of Day 1.
In the other Men’s Open pool, the Hornets are top, followed by the CQ Bulls MOA, also undefeated after three games apiece.
The Japan Men’s team have obviously been working hard in the lead up to World Cup, putting on a beaut display against the Rebels MOBs, but the Hornets and CQ Bulls managed wins against them.
In the Women’s Open, the Sharks WOA are also topping their ladder, after three wins from three, while the Swans follow with two from two.
In the other Women’s Open pool, the Scorps are sitting in the number one spot, despite a loss to the Rebels.
The Storm are so far proving the strongest Alliance team in the Women’s Open, while Japan is sitting at a respectable fourth, out of seven, in their pool after Day 1.
In the Mixed Open, the Rebels top their ladder, followed by the Hornets, while in the other pool, the Sharks and Scorps hold the number one and two spots.
In the Men’s 30s, it’s tight between Queensland’s Sharks and New South Wales’s Scorps; in the Women’s 30s, it’s almost as tight again between Brisbane’s Cobras and Sydney’s Rebels, and the Hornets and Scorps are currently the key contenders for Senior Mixed.
While the Northern Eagles aren’t managing to gain any type of home advantage in the Open divisions, the locals are top of the Men’s 60s ladder, while their Women’s 40s counterparts are sitting third in eight teams.
