Nexus have done
what everyone expected and claimed their record-breaking fourth SL
Premiership with a comfortable victory over the Ruck-less Brawlers.
It was not a Grand Final for the ages, given the limitations faced
by Bill, but given he had to fight the fight with a man down his
team acquitted themselves well.
Nexus, led by Matt Crouch, Jeremy Howe and Billy Longer, were too
solid all round despite the huge efforts of Brad Crouch, Jack
Steele, Steven May and Tom Mitchell. The Brawlers will be desperate
to bounce back in 2018 after such a stellar effort his year was
marred by injury in its conclusion. But for Nexus it was a deserved
title that broke their four year gap after the Marvels and Saints
both went back to back in the interim since Nexus’ 2011-2012 double.
The quest for Nexus now must be to finally deliver a long longed for
Champions League title to Cameron Baker; the one missing trophy from
his otherwise bountiful collection.
