THE Border Bears finished their 2012 season with their presentation day on Sunday. The awards were based around points given every week by spectators who chose 3, 2, 1 in every game.
Coaches found it difficult this season to pick the encouragement awards and coaches’ awards.
Thirteen Border Bears players made representative honours this season, with Jack Evans making the South West Mustangs and Broncos development squad. Jack was named the Golden Bear for the 2012 season.
Four players were selected for development awards. Matthew Clothier received the KLAS-sponsored development award and Tim Kelly, Jacc Pittis-Wilson and Fraser Saccon received the Border Bears development award. These four players will attend a three-day camp at the Gold Coast in December.
David Landers was club person of the year for all the behind-the-scenes work he does for the club. Special mentions went to Katie Graham and Biddy Stewart for their tireless work selling raffle tickets every Thursday night and the club appreciates the committee, coaches, canteen ladies, referees and the extra volunteers that helped us on the grand final day.
