Hills Bulls run out 50-6 winners over Guildford Owls in Nathan Gremmo Memorial Shield game

The Hills Bulls claimed the Nathan Gremmo Memorial Shield for the first time with a 50-6 win over the Guildford Owls in the Ron Massey Cup clash at Crestwood Oval.

After a draw in 2015 and being beaten on the siren in 2016, the Bulls were clinical, scoring nine tries to one.

In front of a big crowd, Bulls captain Tim Robinson said it was a win for the community.

“It was good to get the shield back for the Gremmo family and The Hills community,” Robinson said. 

“When someone loses someone in their family, it’s quite hard and the community around this area really bonded together and helped the Gremmo family. 

“For us boys, to play for them and win for them, that’s everything for us.”

The shield remembers Nathan Gremmo who was killed in a pedestrian accident in 2015. The Gremmo family has been tireless in raising awareness for organ donation, including establishing Jersey Day.

It was a dominant performance for the Bulls leading 26-0 at half-time and continuing in the second half with the only blemish coming from an intercept try in the 68th minute.

Sitting second on the ladder ahead of a round seven bye, Robinson said the side was taking the season one game at a time. 

“We’re putting some wins together and the boys are enjoying playing footy together each week,” he said.
