CAN'T Touch It overcame the absence of two of its star women to win the A-grade mixed grand final in Warwick touch on Wednesday night.

Team member Lauren Quinlan said her team was confident going into the grand final against Designated Drinkers but knew it would be tough with three players Bec Hitzke, Michelle Byrne (teachers) and students Ty Gardner at a Warwick State High camp.

"We had no women's substitutes so it was tiring but we got there," Quinlan said.

"The boys made plenty of substitutions to stay fresh which helped the ladies.

"The team's defence was awesome," Quinlan said.

Designated Drinkers captain Geordie Beckhouse conceded the better side won on the night.

"We played our grand final the week before in beating Allora Butchery and made a lot of mistakes," Beckhouse said.

"This was our first season as a team. Kobi Tate was out with a broken foot and we missed his pace."
