The glamorous and spectacular Sydney Show Boat was the venue for the North Sydney Bears Senior presentation night on Saturday. Players, officials and fans were treated to a sumptuous meal accompanied by spectacular views of Sydney Harbour while they relived the achievements of the past season.
General Manager Greg Florimo recalled what proved the greatest come back win of the season possibly in any grade when the Bears defeated Cronulla 24-20 after not only being down 20-0 at the 60 min mark but surviving without a player sent off in the first tackle of the match. Suggesting that there was a bit of Queensland in the performance Flo said "the win showed the commitment and camaraderie that Gary Larson has tried to instil in the team".
Then came the awards ceremony;
Best & Fairest Player (Jersey Flegg) - Sema Mataora Best & Fairest Player (Premier League) - Ben Fisher Players Player (Jersey Flegg) - Johnny Russell Players Player (Premier League) - Matt Thurston

Congratulations to all winners!
The evening concluded with comedian Nick Penn who was not only funny but also showed himself to be talented on the guitar and didgeridoo.
