SEAGULLS clinched the inaugural Northern Rivers competition yesterday overwhelming Murwillumbah 44-18 at Stan Sercombe Oval. It was a fitting swan song for the competition's best side, who are expected to compete in the Brisbane-based Mixwell Cup next year. In a big day for Seagulls, the club also secured the reserve grade premiership with a gutsy 16-10 victory over Ballina. However, their under-18s were unable to complete a unique trifecta losing to Kyogle 22-10. In the day's main game, Seagulls overcame a Murwillumbah outfit determined to put on a strong show in front of their home crowd. About 3000 people attended. Seagulls put together one of the side's most impressive performances of the year to blow the Mustangs off the park. The win caps a memorable season for coach Troy McCarthy and his troops and helps erase the bitter memory of last year's Group 18 grand final loss to Tugun.

Full wrap of yesterday's grand final action, Pages 36-37. Plus, don't miss all the great photos from the games in our souvenir liftout, Pages 17-24.
