Hunters Hill First Grade play the Grand Final this Saturday, against the Blue Mountains, who they narrowly beat 24-17 in the preliminary final only two weeks before. Blue Mountains booked the date by beating Waverley 23-22 with a penalty in the last minute after Waverley looked to have stolen the game with a converted try with just minutes to go.
The Game kicks off at 3.00PM (note the earlier start) at TG Milner, Eastwood. We will then return to our major sponsor The Bayview in Gladesville where we have the verandah set aside and the Bledisloe will be on the big screen.
In the lower grades:
Hills Rugby Union Club has been this season’s nemesis for Hunters Hill lower grades, knocking out Hunters Hills 2nd Grade in the first week of the finals, and despite a gutsy second half by Hunters Hill 3rd Grade, Hills RUC was clinical enough in attack to ensure they went through to the Grand Final at Hunters Hill expense.
Hunters Hill struck early on in the game to take a 10 nil lead but two tries from Hills fly-half Jeremy Lawlor helped Hills go into the half time break up 24-10. Hunters struck back in the second half through halfback Dom Bullock, but were unable to turn a forward pack dominating in the scrum and breakdown into further points, going down 24-15.
