Lennox Head Trojans celebrate win.

Far North Coast Rugby came to an end for 2020 on the weekend, with Lennox Head claiming the first-grade premiership with a dominating finals run that included a commanding 32-0 grand final victory over last year’s champions, Alstonville Wollongbar (WAR), on Saturday.

The Lennox Trojans started strongly, and ran in four unanswered tries with former Wallaby, Barrick Barnes, converting three and adding two penalties, all before halftime.

The Trojans had eight straight wins going into the grand final with the only loss a 32–31 effort against WAR in the first round of the shortened season in July. 

Lennox Head coach, Doc Tredinnick, has attributed the strength of the Trojans’ top side to the Club’s ability to foster homegrown talent and bring them through to revitalise the senior sides.

WAR came into the game after a nail-biting win over Ballina last weekend, 40-36, which was decided on the bell in their favour, after a penalty try was awarded. 

They have dominated the local competition, featuring in the last seven grand finals and winning most.

Lennox Head also played in the second-grade grand final but couldn’t get past Ballina, who beat them 25–19.

In the President’s cup Byron Bay Rugby capped off a rampaging season winning the grand final 42-0 over Evans Head.
