Hawthorn scholarship holder Siope Ngata shines at NAB U16 Champs

Round 2 saw the South Pacific take on the World XVIII.

The South Pacific team fought very hard all day. Never giving up and took some huge steps forward in their development and learning of the game. A galant effort for the only team at the tournament learning their football skills outside of Australia within their respective nations from the South Pacific. Although the final score doesn’t reflect how well the South Pacific boys played the coaching staff were very pleased with the improvement from Round 1 to Round 2 and look forward to more improvement in game 3 against WA North West. The World XVIII were very well skilled and drilled, their bigger bodies provided clean football for the rest of their team.
