“Snow” was a good omen for Redbacks
THE bloke everyone calls “Snow”, Greg Brien, has every reason to remember the whitest day of the century after his Wellington Redbacks stung the Geurie Goats to claim the club’s first Oils Cup premiership.
Snow fell softly on the mountains on Saturday morning; “Snow” fell a little harder into bed in the Wellington valley in the early
hours on Sunday morning.
Wellington had won the right to avenge last year’s loss to Geurie with a solid performance against Molong and backed it up against the Goats. 60 minutes of dominance enabled the Redbacks to grab a match-winning lead, holding off a late comeback by Geurie to take the title 25-19.
Redbacks’ Zac Mcmanus was player of the Grand Final.
