After the match, Brisbane North coach, John Taylorm paid tribute to the Kookaburras, whose players came from all over North Queensland.

“It’s a super effort for you to have made the grand final.”

Kookaburras coach, Jamie Fuhrmann, said the championships were a great learning opportunity for his side.

“We talked all week about how the education process of this would be the most important thing for us,” he said.

“I’m really proud of all the boys. After a couple more years of development, I look forward to seeing their names up in lights.”
