Muswellbrook Rams to meet Singleton Greyhounds in BHP Billiton Hunter Valley Group 21 Rugby League under-18 decider

THE Singleton Greyhounds will renew their rivalry with Muswellbrook, after the Rams taught the Scone Thoroughbreds a 34-0 lesson in the BHP Billiton Hunter Valley Group 21 Rugby League under-18 final at Pirtek Park on Sunday.

The 2017 minor premiers overcame some recent shaky form to serve notice to next weekend’s opponents, the Greyhounds.

Muswellbrook led 18-0 at the break, courtesy of four-pointers to Brock Farrell, Bailey Taylor and Paul Dengate.

Taylor added three goals.

The romp continued in the second period with further tries to Bryce Beverstock, Taylor and Farrell.

Taylor and Dengate each kicked conversions.

The Thoroughbreds should be commended on a big year – and will be better for the experience.

Muswellbrook and Singleton will lock horns in the grand final at Olympic Park on Saturday, September 2.

MUSWELLBROOK RAMS 34 (Bailey Taylor 2, Brock Farrell 2, Paul Dengate, Bryce Beverstock tries; Taylor 4, Dengate goals) defeated SCONE THOROUGHBREDS 0
