In recent touch rugby league action, a number of matches were played, with the league title wrapping up.

Renegades ladies were beaten by the Teachers squad 1-0, with Gillian Cross scoring the lone try.

In men’s action, Police took on a much improved Mariners team lead by Rory O’Kelly-Lynch, who accounted for 10 of the 15 points for the team. O’Kelly-Lynch scored a try, knocked over a conversion and a penalty to complement burly prop Dustin Archibolds try.

Police responded with tries from Chiquon Smith and Stephen Smit with the deadly boot of veteran Michael Kane leading the way with two penalties and a conversion. A tense see-saw encounter saw the Polcie eventually edge out Mariners 18-15.

In the second game, league leaders Renegades overcame a very valiant effort by a fired up Teachers team 23-17. Renegades locked up the league title with two tries from Conor McGlynn, and scores from winger Cedric Ennis and try scoring machine Jamie Baum.

Paul Kelly managed to knock over a penalty but was unsuccessful on his four conversion attempts. Teachers showed their fighting spirit and were competitive to the end. Winger Corey Boyce scored one try and a good day by Conor McGowan saw the standoff score a try,a penalty and two conversions taking his personal tally to 12 points.
