Unplayable Lions Clinch Cup

Orange City Lions continue to dominate the Central West Rugby Union competition, as they ran out 32 to 16 victors in the 1st grade grand final at Pride Park on Saturday.                  

Parkes had plenty of possession and field position in the second half but the Lions defence was simply too strong, once holding out 12 uninterrupted phases of attack from the boars.

Lions responded with devastating effect as Lions captain Michael Sparks combined with outside centre Sam Coote, who stormed over for the matchwinner allowing City to reclaim the Blowes Clothing Cup.

It has been a dream run for the Lions who haven’t lost a match in two seasons, snaring back to back premierships and grand final victories that will ensure the team is remembered as one of the greatest in central west rugby history.
