Wollongong Marj Babb Tournament - 5th June 1999


The Wollongong WORDS club is New South Wales' largest club in terms of membership. This was their second tournament for the year, and the first at the salubrious Collegians Rugby League Club in the heart of Wollongong.

Ably directed by Ros Gibbons (who had to double as a player due to a last minute withdrawal) the tournament ran very smoothly. Her partner in crime, John Barker got off to a strong start, breasting the bar three times for three schooners and three wins in his first three games before lunch. He was back in town, it seemed. the salubrious Collegians Rugby League Club in the heart of Wollongong.

Unfortunately for John his winning streak came to an abrupt end, going down by 240 points in the first game after lunch. In the same round Robin Duncan executed a nete play by wrapping NE and TE around VAGI to score 99 points for the resulting nine-timer. the salubrious Collegians Rugby League Club in the heart of Wollongong.

Jean McGiffen continued her good form by running in second, and Rene Chelton accounted for herself extremely well with a place in strong company. Lets hope the place-getters can continue their form in Melbourne next weekend. the salubrious Collegians Rugby League Club in the heart of Wollongong.

Wollongong, Canberra and Ulladulla shared the honours in the minor Divisions, with Ulladulla Club taking out the coveted Marj Babb award. This goes to the club whose nominated players score the most collective wins on the day. the salubrious Collegians Rugby League Club in the heart of Wollongong.

A few of carloads of Sydneysiders stayed on for the the usual post-mortems and hard luck stories, combined with beautiful meals of lobster and Steak Diane, before making the long trip home, satisfied with their day of good friends, good food and good Scrabble.
