After playing in the heat of the grand final atmosphere and the sweltering spring sun, the U14s and U16s both managed to bring home grand final trophies.

Narooma Devils secretary Kylie Mclaren was pleased with the girls' efforts.

"In our first proper tackle competition, they set a record by bringing two trophies home," Mclaren said.

"It was awesome and they had an absolute ball."

Unfortunately, the U12s went down to the Bega Roosters 22-14.

Mclaren said the club would be among others in the group to reach a consensus on introducing the contact component of the game in the regular season.

"Clubs are in the process of putting together a vote to see what age groups will have tackle implemented in the 2020 season," Mclaren said.

In the open women's contact grand final, Candelo-Bemboka Eden United won against Cooma United, 12-0.
