NSW Subbies finals done and dusted


The NSW Suburban Rugby (Subbies) season wrapped over the weekend with the first division grand finals being played at TG Millner Field on Saturday.

In the first grade final, Petersham broke a 43 year drought defeating Drummoyne 38-30 to win the club's first Kentwell Cup premiership since 1974.

But before the game – and following the big win to Waverley in the reserve grade final, the CEO of NSWRU Andrew Hore spoke about how important grassroots rugby is to NSW rugby and how the love of rugby is captured at Subbies level.

Waverley blitzed Petersham in the second grade Burke Cup grand final running out convincing winners by 34-15. 

The Shammies also collected the Barbour Cup in the Colts Grand Final edging out Mosman 20-14.

Drummoyne did not leave the ground empty handed, winning the Whiddon Cup in the third grade clash also against Petersham.

Knox RFC's only grand final appearance wasn't wasted, with a tight win 13-10 win against Mosman in the 9am "breakfast club" Judd Cup premiership decider.

Mosman rounded out the winners' circle, taking home the 5th grade Sutherland Cup by defeating Colleagues 18-0.
