Kiama High School claimed back-to-back honours in the under 13s Rugby League Country Cup final at Apex Park, Dubbo.

Kiama accounted for St Edwards College Gosford 16-8.

Proud coach Liam Anderberg said the fact the boys played as a team, secured them the win.

“Jasper Scobie was named man of the match and special mentions have to go out to Hayden Buchanan, Caleb Hall and Bailey Marks,” Anderberg said.

“Their line speed is really good and they scrambled well in defence.”

An upset earlier in the day lowered their spirits in the lead up to the final clash, but they were able to regroup and reverse the result against St Edwards.

“I believe it’s the first time the Country Cup has been won back-to-back by any school,” Anderberg said. 

“They weren’t supposed to make the final. They had already been beaten by the team they had to face in the final.”
