Giants thump Sharks to win title
JOONDALUP Giants were too strong for the Rockingham Sharks in the under 13s rugby league grand final recently.
Playing at Dorrien Gardens, the Heathridge-based rugby league club convincingly won the match 44-8 to be crowned the 2017 premiers on September 10.
The Giants dominated from the opening kickoff and kept the scoreboard ticking over all first half to go into the half-time break leading 24-0.
The second half was more even, however the Giants continued to play well to have the game won with 10 minutes to go.
A converted try right on full-time was the icing on the cake for Jason McDonald’s team.
Junior president Gregg Pearson said the team showed “great running across the field… playing a mature and controlled game of league”.
“All the players played really well, with standout performances by man of the match Zachary Tetai-Boyce, Kelvin Luifolua, and NRLWA under-13s player of the year Ryan McGloin,” he said.
