South Coast Monaro - Second Division: Grand Final Results
Saturday 22nd August


Congratulations to the Jindabyne Bushpigs and the Taralga Tigers who have taken home the South Coast Monaro - 2nd Division Cup and Plate Grand Finals for 2015.


The Bushpigs after missing out on the Grand Final in 2014, have put on a great show for their town, edging out Bungendore 40-34 in a high scoring affair at John Connors Oval. Jindabyne lead the whole match and weren't in danger, but Bungendore did storm home to close the gap. In the end the deficit was to large and the Mudchooks could not steal a memorable victory. David Akkersdyke capped off another great year for him individually, being named the player of the match.


In the Plate Grand Final, the Taralga Tigers stole a victory in the dying moments after coming back from a 22-12 deficit at half time to win 27-22. Boorowa started the game on fire but a late try to Taralga on half time gave the Tigers much need confidence. In a tight second half and with the scores locked at 22 all, it looked as if the game with going into extra time before a Taralga attack effort lead to a try in the corner. Taralga Jye Winters was a standout in the forwards and was named player of the match.
