BITTERSWEET was how
Kangaroos president Leigh Kiely
described his club's first-grade
grand-final win against the Blues on
Kiely said the team went in as
massive underdogs, but he was
quietly confident in his team.
As the Blues dominated the ma-
jority of the game, it looked as if the
favourites were going to take home
the trophy. But a turnaround in the
dying minutes of the match saw the
Roos secure back-to-back premier-
ships with a 20-16 victory.
''We knew if it got to an arm
wrestle, we were pretty confident
that we'd win it,'' Kiely said.
''All our forwards played tremen-
dously yesterday, they paved the
way for us.
''They were a bunch of no names
that came up against [the Blues] and
Kiely singled out Steve Dunn and
Nathan Nash as most impressive on
the day. ''I personally thought
[Dunn] was outstanding yesterday in
the forwards,'' he said. ''He just kept
taking up all day, and never relented
throughout the whole day.
''Nash was awesome for us yes-
''He just defended well, and he
made lots of ground for us.''
Kiely said the focus now was on
next season and the club hoped to
retain the same players. Captain-
coach Aaron Gorrell has already
signed on, as has Daniel Watt and
''We'll certainly be talking to
other players in the coming weeks,''
