RUGBY LEAGUE: The Mundubbera Tigers presented awards to their players after a successful rugby league season despite not winning the grand final earlier last month.

The presentation began with finger food at the Mundubbera Golf Club where rugby league players and their partners were invited to a sit down at the club.

President Cameron MacDonald led the speeches congratulating the players on another good season.

"The boys put in a really good effort this season,” MacDonald said.

"Even though we didn't come home with a grand final, it's always good to make it to a grand final and the players did well, it was unlucky enough we didn't get the win, but there's always next year.”

MacDonald said it was a very busy season with the club hosting the Intrust Super Cup.

"It was a massive season hosting the Intrust Super Cup, lots of time and effort went into organising it and making sure the event went smoothly,” he said.

Asked whether or not he'll be coaching the Tigers in 2018, MacDonald said "he'll have to see.”

"I'll just enjoy the off season for now and once the pre-season comes around, I'll see what happens,” he said.

"I'd like to thank my committee members and all the volunteers who helped out with the season.”
