Rams claim historic double
The Western Rams claimed dual Country Championship titles over the weekend with heart-stopping victories in both the U16 and 18’s Finals at Cessnock Sportsground.
After suffering back-to-back Finals heartbreaks in 2016, the Rams erased the disappointment of last season to defeat the East Coast Dolphins and Newcastle Rebels in spectacular fashion.
Amazingly, both Finals went into extra-time with the Rams scoring on the full-time siren and nailing pressure conversions in both games to set-up amazing finishes to the U16/18 Country Championship Finals.
The Rams U16’s scored twice in extra-time to claim a 32-22 victory over a brave East Coast Dolphins side that can be very proud of their efforts throughout the tournament.
The U18’s sealed their victory with Luke Gale crashing over with only minutes remaining in extra-time to defeat a Newcastle Rebels side who can also be very proud of their contributions to a memorable final and 2017 Country Championships.
