Under-18s Magpies swoop Cities at grand final clash

Rugby League: Mitchell Magpies under-18s have come out triumphant at the grand final game against the Cities on Sunday, 22-18.

Magpies coach Geoffrey Kenafke said he was proud of his team's efforts.

"They dug deep, they didn't give up and that's what I asked from them at half-time,” he said.

"That's what they showed in the last bit and they came home strong.”

Cities coach Scott Hilton said his side just didn't play their usual game.

"Mitchell came out really hard and sort of set the tone early and we struggled to match that,” he said.

"We played very rushed, we didn't have a lot of composure with the ball and we sort of played like we only had 30 seconds on the clock right from the opening whistle.”
