The NSW PSSA U12’s have retained the Phil Waugh Shield with not a point conceded against them across three outstanding performances at last week’s National Championships in Darwin.

The undefeated NSW side won back-to-back-to-back games throughout the tournament, notching up a total of 247 points over their Northern Territory, South Australia and Sydney PSSA opponents.

NSW PSSA U12’s coach John Carters says the team were “nothing short of phenomenal” in their standard of rugby during the competition.

“They kept their opposition scoreless across the three games and did not give them a sniff once with a wide, fast and physical game style,” he said. ‘They put the competition to the sword to prove they were worthy contenders for the Shield.”

For most of these players, the Phil Waugh Shield would be their first opportunity to represent the state in rugby union in their pathway to higher honours in the game says NSW Waratahs Elite Youth Development Manager, Pat McCutcheon.

“The PSSA competition is a great platform for young players to gain exposure to a higher quality level of competition,” he said.

“The Phil Waugh Shield is one of the first steps an aspiring player will take in the journey to becoming an elite rugby player in NSW.

“There were a number of players who were recognised for their on-field efforts so a big congratulations is in order for those lads.”

Congratulations to all the players and coaching staff involved in the NSW PSSA U12's side. Check out the list of NSW players who received awards for their performances in the Phil Waugh Shield competition below.
