The final round for 2017 of the HLA (Handball League Australia) for Men was held over the weekend of November 18-19 in Sydney.
It was the most thrilling round yet with many of the matches very tight – keeping spectators on the edge of their seats. On the Saturday newcomers Brisbane Wolves took regular winners Sydney uni into two lots of overtime until defending champions Sydney Uni finally pulled ahead by two points. Sunday’s final saw regular challengers St Kilda take the win over Sydney Uni in the final in a tight and physical match.

Congratulations to both NSW CLubs Sydney Uni and UTS Hawkes for such great performances. Planning for 2018 will occur in January, with the possible addition of more clubs to the event.
