Mounties have capped off an historic season after claiming the 2016 NSWRL Club Championship at today’s NSWRL Grand Final Day at Pirtek Stadium (Sunday, 25 September).
Known as the Flowers Memorial Pennant, Mounties were rewarded for their impressive season after becoming the first team since St George in 1985 to reach all three NSWRL senior grade grand finals.
The Club Championship is calculated across the five NSWRL competitions – Intrust Super Premiership NSW, Ron Massey Cup, Sydney Shield, SG Ball and Harold Matthews.
Named after Fred Flowers, the first president of the Political Labor League, the title is awarded to the club with the highest aggregate points at the conclusion of the competition rounds.
Clubs receive certain points for each victory they earn and despite not competing in the NSWRL junior representative competitions, Mounties still managed to top the tally board, highlighting their extraordinary success in the senior competitions.
After finishing the regular season as minor premiers across all three senior grades, Mounties earned a combined total of 103 points to claim their first NSWRL Club Championship.
