Southcity came, saw and conquered Gundagai once more.

The Bulls claimed back-to-back Group Nine titles with a 24-8 win over the Tigers at Equex Centre on Saturday.

Gundagai have been the kings of the fast start throughout the finals series, but it was Southcity who charged out of the blocks before the Tigers tried in vain to get back into the contest.

The Bulls scored the first two tries to take a 12-0 lead at half-time.

Mitch Bennett opened the scoring in the fourth minute before Nathan Rose stepped his way through the line with 10 minutes left in the half.

However the Tigers went to a higher level in the second stanza and got back into the contest when Dylan Cole scored the first of this two tries three minutes into the half.

Gundagai had plenty of momentum before rugby union convert Steven Tracey swooped on a loose ball from Luke Berkrey.

The Bulls winger went 60 metres before being dragged down, however on the next play the ball was spread wide for Scott Bowden to score.

It proved the be a game changer.
