Edinburgers in Aussie
At this year's National Touch League tournament in Coffs Harbour, Australia, Edinburgh were well represented with 7 players involved in the Scotland Mixed Open side touring and also head coach.
This was a great experience for all involved. The NTL is the regional championship for Australia, with the best players comig together to form regional sides. The level of touch at the tournament is incredibly high with all games played at a blistering speed and extreme intensity. The results were ok (Played 9, Won 3, Drew 1, Lost 5) with a few of the those losses being by only 1 or 2 scores. The Scotland team were definitely at the races!
