A total of 52 teams from the six New South Wales Regions including Sydney Mets, Sydney Scorpions, Southern Rebels, West South West Suns, Hunter Western Hornets, Northern Eagles, and ACT Raiders – competed in the two day event at the excellent Central Coast Regional Sporting & Recreation Complex.

As a result Scorpions successfully retained their Champion Region title, making it 12 in a row and a total of 13 wins.

Sydney Scorpions Touch Almanac

Sydney Scorpions in conjunction with touch football historian Cary Thompson have now published our team lists from 1997-2021. Additionally in 2021 Scorpions celebrates 25 years of competing at events such as the National Touch League, National Youth Championships and the Junior Regionals. In coming weeks we will publish our Scorpions 25 Year All Stars teams in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed. There will also be presentations made to those named in our All Star teams at our 2022 NTL Awards Dinner with a commemorative training singlet also being made. Thank you to everyone past and present who has contributed to our great region over 25 years of representative touch football.

NSWTA Regional Review Recommendations

Sydney Scorpions thank NSWTA and the Board for the professional manner in which the regional review was conducted. This includes the initial feedback process in which regions/affiliates were engaged, leading to the Board review and recommendations made which can be viewed here:  https://bit.ly/NSWTARegionalReview

Whilst it is disappointing to lose Parramatta who have been a great contributor to our success, we are extremely pleased to keep Hills Hornets within our region. Scorpions also lose Westmead, who along with Parramatta will now be under the Sydney Mets. These changes will not impact any of our junior players involved in the 2021 National Youth Championships. All current NTL players from Parramatta and Westmead will still be able to represent Scorpions under the TFA “home grown” rule and also under the regional review recommendation as “incumbent” Scorpions players.
