CLOSE to 20 years of toil has paid off for the Dysart Bulls, having claimed their first minor premiership since the early 1990’s.
The achievement comes on the back of a 72-28 win over Emerald Tigers in the final game of the regular season at the weekend.
“It’s our first minor premiership since 91 or 92 I think,” Dysart coach Bill Devine said.
Bulls’ winger and Players Player Mitch Fegan gave as good as he got.
“He did some pretty brave things in defence and made a lot of smart plays,” Devine said.
“They (Tigers) certainly gave us a good hit-out, nothing came easy.”
Tigers vice-president Jay Edwards thought they did well to make even a dent on Dysart’s score card.
“It was a big effort to put near-on 30 points on the team who are looking like they’re going to win the competition,” he said.
