After Saturday's defeat there was an air of disappointment, and more than a few sore bodies, when we rose and headed up to the Panthers league club for breakfast.
Day 21 – Sunday October 29
Everyone is obviously disappointed not to make it four wins from four but to say that the staff are happy and proud of the performances would be a massive understatement.
To see this group of young men come together, unite as a team and perform the way that they have, both on and off the field, has been a real pleasure for all staff involved, and the whole group of lads have been a credit to their families, community clubs and schools throughout the tour.
Each and everyone of them will have made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
So it was on the bus for one last ride along the now infamous ‘Parramatta Road’ for the trip into the city centre.
An opportunity for some last minute souvenir shopping, or to just simply sit and watch the world go by before meeting late afternoon for the most exhilarating activity, walking up to the top of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.
21 players and six staff tackled the Bridge… several with plenty of anxiety on show at tackling some height fears! The views from the top of the Bridge are stunning and it’s a great way finish to the tour.
Following the climb it was back to base, via Domino’s for yet more food, where the tour ending presentation took place.
