Our first success was in the adoption of our new brand “The Taipans” as this locally developed logo has united our club and very quickly become the focus of our Club Spirit.
In the Club Championship Table for Super League, we achieved a very pleasing 3rd place which is an improvement on our 5th place in our first season.
As predicted the last round against Dural was a ripper with the Benfica fans ringing after every game to check how Dural was going. They were very excited when our 12′s and 14′s boys won and 13 girls drew.
The Taipans pushed Dural all the way with both clubs earning 13 points for the round. What a finish!!
Once again, we were very proud of the efforts of all our teams and congratulate the 5 teams that reached the Final Series.
Congratulations to our 12′s boys who were Minor Premiers.
14′s boys who finished in 3rd but on the same points as first and second. Women who finished 4th on equal points. 16′s girls who finished 5th. Men who finished 5th. Youth Men – 6th, 13 girls – 7th, 16 boys – 7th.
During the season The Taipans had two clean sweep rounds in Round 9 against Apia and Round 11 against the Vikings.
Many people ensured the continued success of the South Coast Taipans; The very dedicated Committee, our determined and skilled players, our committed coaches and our very enthusiastic and vocal supporters.
Thank you to each and every one of you for your efforts to establish and support the mighty Taipans.
We wish our teams every success in the Finals Series.
GO YOU TAIPANSSSSS!!!!
