The Sydney Redbacks created an upset at the National Korfball Championships with one team reaching the final and the other taking points off the eventual winners in the B grade tournament.
Although missing out on the trophy by the narrowest of margins, both teams can be very proud of their performances, with several players in each team playing their first ever matches; against teams playing regularly throughout the year.
SCRKC (Blacks): Sarah Higginson, Gemma Pratt, Meena Subramanyam, Cheya Tyson; Simon Cunliffe, James Gounis, Wilfred Lau, Graham Morris, Mark Zilm
SCRKC (Blues): Joey Lai, Elise Mizzi, Victoria Wah, Karen Zilm; Rob Allen, Daniel Berg, Josh Berg, Neil Hayes, George Lincoln, Ben Mizzi, Sebastiaan Schlee
In an unprecedented move, Sydney Redbacks entered two teams into the B Grade competition, evenly split with the hope of both teams being competitive. Debuts were handed to Simon, Will, Elise, Daniel and Ben; in addition to late injury sub Josh who stepped in from the sidelines for the last game.
