A 73rd minute field goal from Illawarra halfback Drew Hutchinson proved the difference as the Cutters claimed a 21-20 victory over minor premiers Mounties in the Intrust Super Premiership NSW decider at Pirtek Stadium on Sunday (25 September).
On a memorable day in which NSWRL said goodbye to one of Rugby League’s most iconic stadiums, the Cutters celebrated their first Intrust Super Premiership NSW title in the club’s short history.
Having made all three NSWRL Grand Finals, Mounties managed just the one victory as the club’s Ron Massey Cup side claimed a comfortable 36-16 win over St Marys.
East Campbelltown Eagles caused a major upset in the Sydney Shield, defeating a Mounties side who had won 21 consecutive matches heading into Sunday’s Grand Final.
