The Blue Heelers will enjoy yet another reason to celebrate their season when they are presented with premiership jackets on September 15.
They were not quite ready in time for presentation night, but there wouldn't be too many people complaining about extending the festivities another fortnight.
The jacket presentation will take place from 4pm at Club Bombala and all are welcome to attend.
