Congratulations to Shammies 13’s who won their second premiership in a row!
A huge achievement from the boys who were promoted, not one, but TWO divisions after their title win last year. This took them from D to B division which is a big step up. The rise in quality opposition took a while to get used to, but the boys relished the challenge and lifted their intensity at training.
Come Grand Final Day, the boys overcame Chatswood with one of their most dominant displays of the year. Running into a strong breeze, the boys were on fire from the kick off. Awesome running, slick passing, strong clean outs and terrific phase play…they controlled possession and were unbelievable in defence right across the park. Once the ball got to our outside backs with space and momentum, the points kept coming. The boys were relentless and never took their foot of the pedal.
The best part of the day was the determination and joy on the boys’ faces. They were playing seriously good rugby, everything clicked and they had a ball!
52-20 was the final result.
Congratulations to the coaches, to all our supportive families but most of all to this fine bunch of kids…they were set a big challenge, prepared well, trusted each other, and can be proud of this achievement.
