It was a season of near misses for Sunnybank in 2020. The Dragons fell just short in four of their six losses this year but weren't a long way off a number of the teams that featured at the pointy end of the ladder.

Coach Sione Fukofuka was disappointed but not disheartened as he reflected on the season just past and seemed confident that Sunnybank have plenty of improvement in them ahead of 2021.

Overview with Sione Fukofuka:

“It was quite frustrating to lose so many tight games this season. I was really happy that we were competitive all year and in a position to win the majority of our games, but extremely frustrated that we weren’t able to find a way to win when we were close in four of our six losses.

“There were lots of positives to take from the season and we improved in a lot of the areas that we focussed on over both off seasons, but at the end of the day we wanted to get results and finish higher up the ladder and that didn’t happen.

“I think depth was probably our main issue. Rugby is no longer a 15 man game, you need 23 players every week and we definitely lacked a bit of depth in a few key positions.
