For the JDF, Ramone Carr scored a try and kicked a goal for eight points. Demone Williams also scored a try for the soldiers.

 “This was really a challenging year for us. We spoke about history before the game. This is our third time meeting the Warriors in a Grand Finals, we lost the previous two,” said Red Sharks Assistant Coach Roy Calvert.

“We wanted to be the first club to win four in a row and also the first to win six NCC titles. Some really meticulous plans went into making this season successful and we are proud of the boys.”

The Sharks now focus to the National Knock-Out Cup that begins next Saturday and the National Division II Championship that commences the end of October.
