Williams guides Mounties to grand final
Sam Williams led a fighting Mounties outfit to the 2016 Intrust Super Premiership NSW Grand Final, with a 24-18 victory over the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval.
The Tigers led 18-6 at half-time, but Mounties remained patient, calm and composed, and never panicked in their inspirational second half fight-back.
The conditions were horrid for the majority of the match, and while ball-control was never perfect, both sides adjusted to the weather to put one of the games of 2016.
The rain was heavily pouring down, but that worked in the Wests Tigers favour in the opening two minutes of the game, when Watson Heleta charged forward after a classy left-to-right shift and was brought down short, but the wet surface allowed him to slide onto the white chalk for a try.
