Group 16 Rugby League Grand Finals 20 August 2017

Cooma have completed their unbeaten season, proving too strong for Bombala in a solid 38-18 win. The scored two tries in the opening five minutes and Bombala were always playing catch up football after that. Cooma have replicated the Moruya Sharks unbeaten season of 2016 and now wait on results in other groups to see if they too will be awarded the prestigious Claytons Cup as best performed team in Country NSW.

Bega stunned Candelo-Bemboka with a great game of power rugby league, thrashing the Panthers 42-12 in an unexpected lopsided Reserve Grade clash.

In the Under 18s, poor discipline cost Batemans Bay any chance of upsetting undefeated Merimbula -Pambula, who won 22-18. At one stage both the Tigers halves were in the sin bin for fighting, leaving their team short of play makers. In a disturbing incident, one of these sin binned players defied club officials and ran back onto the field to join a melee and will now face judicial citing and a possible lengthy suspension from the game.

The day started with a controversial Ladies League Tag, with Bombala eventually winning 10-6 in the second period of overtime. Moruya lead 6-4 with a minute to go, but match officials missed a blatant knock-on from a high kick that had the crowd howling. In the last seconds Bombala were then awarded a dubious penalty in front of goal in an incident where Moruya had as much right to claim their player was fouled. The penalty was kicked and the teams played another 20 minutes of extra time before Bombala scored. League Tag is a difficult game to referee, the nature of the game meaning many different interpretations from contact rugby league. But the howler over the dropped ball is basic refereeing 101. If Moruya have of gotten the ball as they should have, they would have been able to wind down the clock and claim the victory. On such things are games won and lost.
