The 1st 2 finals of the day were of a high standard but this game raised the bar farther: end to end rugby, focused and skillful with expert tackling, defending and finishing.

After 6 tackles the ball is turned over, but recieve a penalty and the attacking teams chalks up another 6 tackles. At the level of these two teams those extra 6 tackles means 1 thing – A try!

This game was fierce. Both teams were in no mood to defend, although they each defended brilliantly. The focus was attack. Ruthless and relentless the play was kept at a high tempo throughout the game & given the heat from a very sunny day the benfits of league on fitness cannot be under estimated.

Superb game and with the Sharks in it right up to the whistle Rabbittohs experience secured the victory. The standard is improving all the time!
