And, the grand final of the inaugural Hunter Valley Group 21 CRL 9’s women’s competition lived up to all expectations. With the hosts Muswellbrook Rams enjoying a slim 6-4 lead, in front of a big crowd, Tyler Kersley snared the match-winning try in the last 60 seconds. Holly Fisher-Webster put the icing on the cake, at 10-6, with a successful conversion after the full-time siren. Muswellbrook could not have asked for a better start.Talented youngster Kelsey French latched onto a nice pass and displayed exceptional pace to sprint 80m to the tryline. Shae Pemberton added the extras for a 6-0 advantage.
