A combined team of students from Mendooran, Gulargambone and Trangie (MGT) have gone agonisingly close to winning an under 16s Small Schools final at Dubbo.
Some of the best school-aged rugby league talent was on display at Caltex Park on Wednesday and MGT were well in the hunt in their match.
Playing against Sacred Heart Central School from Cootamundra, MGT went within four points of getting the win.
