Teamwork on show
By Lt Carrie Miner
showed what teamwork was all
about at the 7 Bde winter sports
grand finals held at Gallipoli
Barracks on September 9.
With most units low on numbers
due to overseas deployments, tradi-
tional rivalries were put aside in the
name of sportsmanship.
8/9RAR and 2/14LHR combined
for the basketball competition and
easily accounted for a valiant 1 Fd
Regt, winning by 22 points, 59-27.
Overall, 2/14LHR were impres-
sively strong all season, contesting
all finals and also took out the soc-
cer, netball and touch competitions.
Rugby union was the closest final
of the afternoon -- a fitting end to a
tough competition for the season.
The match was even, with the
formidable backline of 8/9RAR up
against the imposing forward pack
of 2/14LHR. At 17-all at full-time,
the match went into 20 minutes of

Adon Cadona, 8/9RAR, Tpr Daniel

8/9RAR, kicking four out of five
conversions to seal the 31-29 win.
Man of the match honours went
to Cpl Chade Knight, 8/9RAR.
The combined infantry team of
8/9RAR and 6RAR made it a 'three-

for the third time in a row. Coming
in to the final, the ledger was even
with the Infantry team and Light
Horse teams standing at one win and
one loss for the season.
The 8/9RAR and 6RAR team
was strong from the start and led by
56 points at half-time.
Spurred on by the loud and effec-
tive heckling from supporters, 6RAR
and 8/9RAR easily won the game
14.11.95 to 4.5.29.
Best on ground went to player
and coach LCpl Adam Stevenson,
8/9RAR, who was happy to come
away with the win.
"Thanks go to 2/14LHR for a
great game," he said.
"Sgt Chris Sharp provided
rock solid defence, with Cpl Scott
Withers and Cpl Daniel Nelson
providing support to ensure a hard-
