THE Phantoms Rugby Union Club has recognised their best players for the 2021 season, which was a different one to normal.
The Phantoms only fielded a third grade men's side and women's side in 2021, but are hopeful of returning to first grade in 2022.
It was an up and down year for both teams with wins and losses along the way.
Neither side reached the finals of the Southern Inland competition, but this fixture was eventually cancelled amid lockdowns and restrictions.
However, both teams will take confidence in the improvements made in 2021 and will look to be back bigger and better in 2022.
