St Brendan’s head of sport Dallas Williams said the win was reward for the players’ hard work over the past three months.

He said it was also a great accomplishment for coach Daniel O’Toole, who had invested so much in preparing the team.

“This competition was a great opportunity for the boys to fine-tune their football skills,” Williams said.

“The majority of the group will now transition to rugby league, in preparation for the Cowboys Challenge next term.”
