Grand final rivalry appeals

TWO very good grand finals and a large crowd at Rugby Park will make administrators hope the glory days have returned.

The reserve grade grand final was as exciting as the A-grade with just four points separating the two teams.

However, in this match it was not Colts that ended the game with the advantage, but the all-conquering Boars winning 18-14.

Both teams had promised it would be a lot closer contest than when they met in the major semi-final, a game Boars romped away with by 35-0.

Despite the loss Colts still has a lot to look forward to if the nucleus of this team is retained.

Dylan Tiaaneaiga is still a teenager in years but on the park he is a man-mountain and he took Colts close to the win by scoring both of his teams tries.

Nevertheless both clubs were happy with the outcome and tried to make it a festive occasion.

Manny Robb let everybody know which team he plays for with the club name shaved from the hair on the side of his head.

As always the ground was well decorated, plenty of red and white while in the main final Drovers let everyone know they were there, especially one fan who galloped around the perimeter of the ground in a horse suit.
