Earlier today New South Wales Wheelchair Rugby League hosted it's Grand Final games for both the Cups and Plate competitions
Canberra Raiders and the Cronulla Sharks went head to head in the NSW Plate game, both came focused and the game resulted in a true showcase of Wheelchair Rugby Leagues development in New South Wales.
Cronulla led by young gun Jeremy Ayoub were on the attack early and Canberra seemed a little on edge. Raiders captain Tim Robinson rallied the troops and with the help of Joseph Abboud and 'The Bullet' Jessi Mowczan, Canberra found their groove. The Sharks weren't going to let Canberra have the easy win, as Emily Becroft, Liam Moar and Deniz Karaca putting in a strong defensive display. Canberra found a way to find holes in the Sharks defense close to the line and get back to back tries and secure the win. The Final score was Canberra 38 - Sharks 28. In a bit of a bombshell during the NSWWRL Plate presentation, Raiders captain Tim Robinson thanked his team for their efforts over the past few years and credited their development. He then took the opportunity to announce that he will be stepping aside as an active player in the NSWWRL plate competition. Robinson did go on to mention that he will be still involved as a Mentor/Coach in this division. In the later game St George Illawarra Dragon 58 def. Wests Tigers 40.
