Teams are back on the field. The Steelers finished that first half very strongly. Coincided with some interchanges.

Raiders kick off, we are back underway in the second half.

40th min Looks like Moala is down and they’re calling for the stretcher. He’s off. That’s critical.

53rd min TRY RAIDERS to Jack Sandford. WHAT A TRY! Free flowing beautiful attack down the right side and Sandford backs up on the inside. It’s under the posts! Mitchell Spencer converts.

Great news. Sounded like the "star" players stepped up. Hope Moala is ok.

From memory we got a few good players out our last champion junior team- Croker and Fensom was it? Feel like I'm leaving a couple out.

Future first graders from this game alone.
Esera
Mooney
Moala
Number 5
Number 11
Possibly number 14

Special mention to the Steelers lock who, had they won, would have got MOM.

at the death the final penalty isn't it against the rules to deliberately kick the ball out on the full?
Remember Austin nearly got penalised for it

Trey Mooney was outstanding and was presented with the game ball as man of the match in the Grand Final. Very well deserved, but Caleb Esera would have been very close.

MATCH REPORT: Canberra Raiders hold off Illawarra Steelers in hard fought SG Ball Cup Grand Final win

The Canberra Raiders have defeated the Illawarra Steelers 18-14 in a hard fought SG Ball Cup Grand Final that went down to the wire. Both sides came out of the sheds firing and with a dry track at Leichhardt Oval, there looked to be plenty of points on offer.

Canberra Raiders win a fourth SG Ball title for Mulholland

The guts and determination of the Canberra Raiders last-ditch defence would have made recruitment manager Peter Mulholland - who is in hospital undergoing treatment for blood cancer - proud.

"The boys really put in a good effort for Pete. We wish he could've been here, but he's someone who's put a lot of time and effort into these young men and he can take a lot of credit for the result," coach Barnes said.
