It was the match that the Crookwell Dogs had been waiting for.
The rematch of last year’s grand final against Bungendore, but this time they had them at home.
The result was in Crookwell’s favour as the Doggies got up.
They weren’t playing their best rugby with silly penalties and poor ball retention giving the Mud Chooks first points on the board. No conversion put them 5 in front.
Crookwell regained the ball and some good work by the forward pack and some good ball retention put Edward Price over the line for the Doggies. The conversion was good and the Dog’s led 7 – 5.
The forwards dominated in the scrums and line outs winning a plenty against the feed.
A line out close to the Mud chooks line saw Gearin Price cross the line for the Dog’s and the conversions was good by Andrew Nolan to make it 14 – 5.
After half time Crookwell had plenty of opportunity to go over the line but silly handling errors held them at bay.
Crookwell received a penalty near halfway and the ball was handed to Andrew Nolan and he guided it over in what was a brilliant kick.
The score was now 17 – 5.
Bungendore came back fighting and this saw them go over the line but with another missed conversion bringing them within a converted try 17 – 10. Crookwell had to put the game out of reach and was up to the backs to have their glory when Charlie Cummins went over on the side line, the conversion was no good 22-10.
The only points scored after this point was another good penalty kick by Andrew Nolan to win 25 – 10.
Thank you to the supporters for the day.
Points Scott Kensit 3, Gearin Price 2, Pat Carlon 1.
