Tamworth’s representative Oztag teams are known as the Bears at Nationals, but they’ve been going to the State Cup without a mascot for 20-years.

The name proved most popular with the players, narrowly beating ‘Tornadoes’.
Meanwhile Tamworth is set to announce its State Cup squads over the weekend.
