Thrilling Grand Final



With over 80,000 people in a stadium screaming and chanting the names of the grand finalists, out they came. With seismic roars from the crowd the St George Illawarra Dragons take on the Sydney Roosters in what will be a memoric battle.

BRRR! The kick off was made and the possession went to the Dragons. After a while, the Dragons came out on top as Mark Gasnier perfectly timed his run off Jamie Sowards kick and he had got the Dragons on the board. With Jamie converting the goal beautifully the score was settled at 6-0.

All of a sudden thunder struck at the dragons when Rooster players Braith Anasta and Mitch Orbison scoring for their team. Unfortunately for the roosters Todd Carney was having a bad day missing both goals. So when the half time hooter sounded, the advantage went to the Roosters leaving the score at 8-6

I think that the star so far is Braith Anasta. The Roosters captain has been focusing on the ball and eyes are sharp locking on to the target like a sniper assassin. That is mostly why he scored that try that he got. If he keeps this up the Roosters may have a chance of beating St George.

The second half begins and the Roosters career ends. With in the time limit the Dragons Jason Nightingale scores a double in the corner. Thunder has just struck in the same place and a pumped up Soward converted it all. Then a penalty was awarded to the Dragons from Jared Waera Hargrave jumping into a tackle too late. So yet again Soward converts and the score was 20-8.

It gets worse for the Roosters when Nathien Fien and Dean Young score and in the 70 minute mark. There was no way the Roosters could catch up. Especially with Soward yet again doing his job kicking the goals over. The fulltime hooter sounded with a Dragons victory over the Roosters. Finally after 35 years the Dragons claim the win at the grand final.

What a good season for the Dragons. They came from Just missing out last year to the winners of the grand final. But my most interesting thing was the Roosters and how they made it to the glory. Last year they were the wooden spoon winners(Last Place) and now they are second and missed out by a gun shot. Ohh well that was an impressive victory for the Dragons.
