WAR have continued their dominance of Far North Coast rugby with a 23-13 win over the Byron Shire Rebels. WAR’s win was on the back of strong defence that limited scoring opportunities even when the side was depleted through yellow cards. It is the team’s eighth premiership in the last ten years.
The Byron Shire Rebels did taste premiership success in second grade after beating Cabarita Beach 30–22, earlier in the day at Lyle Park, Wollongbar. In the Women’s 12s Casuarina Beach beat Lismore 12–5.
