Arguably Oztag's number one

HOMEBUSH may have won the coveted Mens Open 1 division at C.ex Coffs International Stadium but there are other Oztag associations that can claim to be the best in the state.

The Homebush 1 team overcame St George with a fast paced display of slick passing to win the major final of the 2018 NSW Senior State Championship 6-2.

Central Coast claimed bragging rights by winning four finals and proving a very strong women's outfit.

The Central Coast girls won the Open 1 and 20s titles and finishing runner-up in the Masters.

Penrith won three state crowns including the mens and mixed divisions of the 20s age group.

Coffs Harbour is a relative newcomer to the state championships but reached one final on the weekend with the team in the womens Open 2 division losing a hard fought final 2-1 to Macarthur.

Macarthur won a second title in the mixed Opens while other associations to win two titles were Souths and South West.

Top level Oztag action will return to Coffs Harbour in October for the Australian Junior Championships before the Tag World Cup is played here over four days at the start of November.
