Ivanhoes celebrate their best at ball and presentation night

Last Saturday, Ivanhoes Rugby League Club held their formal ball and presentation night at Red Beret Hotel in Cairns to celebrate a huge season of footy and recognise individual player achievements in three grades.

Ivanhoes may be out of finals contention in A Grade and Reserves, however their Under 18 team are currently sitting at the top of the ladder and are set to play finals footy.

A Grade player Dallas Skardon, who was awarded Best Back, stole the show on the night when he commented that he "bleeds red, white and blue - (Ivan)Hoes forever."
