Redfield make it three premierships on the trot

REDFIELD College Old Boys celebrated their third consecutive NSW suburban rugby premiership last Sunday with a 14-10 victory over the Sydney Harlequins.

The Jeffrey Cup title was the team's 50th consecutive win in a run stretching back three seasons to early 2010.

Redfield dominated the final with plenty of field possession and took several decisive chances to run out four point winners at a packed Macquarie University sports park.

Head coach Julian Whealing said he was proud of his team who stepped up a division this year and beat the reigning premiers.

"I was relieved and grateful when the game finished as it's been a long season for everyone involved," Whealing said.

"Like every game the players really put their bodies on the line. I think it was our close-knit bond and tactical understanding which ultimately won us the premiership."

Whealing said the celebrations "were fairly low key after an exhaustive day".

"This year we had two of our teams in the grand final so it was a big day for all concerned," he said.

Fairvale Lansvale beat Redfield 31-28 in the second grade Noice Cup final. Next year Redfield plan to field three teams in the NSW Suburban competition meaning the old boys Jeffrey Cup squad will move up to the fourth division.
