The Naracoorte Jets rugby side won the "State of Mind" Shield in Limestone Coast Rugby League's Mental Health Round on Saturday.

The Jets played the showpiece game of the day against the Blue Lake Knights to cap off a big weekend focussing on mental health.

The NRL State of Mind program aims to encourage players, clubs and communities to speak up and seek help if they are experiencing any form of difficulty or difference in mood.

Former NRL star Clinton Toopi was a special guest of the league and was involved in a Headspace workshop over the weekend.

The Jets continued their strong season on the field with a 38-16 win over the Knights. Best players for the Jets were Dale Smith, Lou Morunga and Sikeli Naivalurua. Morunga won a medal for best on ground.

In the other games, Bulls defeated Warriors 62-5, Panthers forfeited to Raiders and Blue defeated Bulls 14-6 in the women's match.

This weekend, the Jets will travel to Warrnambool where they will take on the Horsham Panthers.
