Following an absolute nail-biting Grand Final win the Townsville Blackhawks Cyril Connel Cup side are heading to the Junior National Finals with a renewed sense of confidence.
It was Souths Logan who started the better of the two teams in the final as they raced to an 18 point lead just prior to the half time break.
Coach Allen Petersen said it was Captain and man of the match McKenzie Baker‘s chip and chase right on half time that sparked the Blackhawks comeback and the Townsville side managed to even the scores up 18-18 with just four minutes left to play in the final.
The game then came down to a ruck infringement in the final minute as Blackhawks kicker Adam Cook calmly slotted the two points to give his side a 20-18 victory.
Petersen also praised his player’s attitudes and willingness to play for each as major reasons why the team were crowned Grand Final Champions.
This Sunday the Cyril Connell Cup squad will be taking on New South Wales’ Harold Matthews Cup Champions the Parramatta Eels in the National Junior Final. The Eels arrive at the National final after a similar narrow grand final victory after they pipped the Newcastle Knights at the post with a 16-14 win in Penrith last Saturday.
The exciting clash will kick off at 11:30am on Sunday and will be streamed LIVE on the QRL Livestream Page.
