Townies made it back to back Mount Isa Rugby League premierships with a dominant display against Cloncurry at Alec Inch Oval.
It was the battle of the 2016 and 2017 premiers and although Cloncurry had won this year’s minor premiership Town came in as favourites after a 38-18 win over the Eagles in the semi final two weeks ago.
The green machine brought a huge contingent of fans down from the Curry and they were quickly out of their seats and screaming with joy when their boys landed the first four-pointer of the day after just four minutes when Kyle Rub pushed over.
But that was as good as it got for the Curry in the first half as Town quickly got into their rhythm and then moved through the gears.
Fullback Thomas Krosch was first to score on 11 minutes to lock things up at 4-4 and then on 23 minutes hooker Dylan McDonald scored his first try in what was a man-of-the-match performance to win the Jack Lee Memorial Trophy.
From there Town never looked back and Krosch grabbed his second try and Raegen Cooney grabbed another as they built up an unstoppable momentum.
Another try right on half time left matters at 26-4 to Townies as Cloncurry wilted in the heat of the afternoon.
Curry came out firing in the second half but a stunning length of the field breakaway by McDonald added another six points to their pain.
Shain Booth replied with a terrific lung-busting run of his own to make it 32-8 and give the Curry fans something to shout about.
But they could not capitalise on futher opportunities and Scott Perrin’s try on the hour mark sealed it for Townes.
They grabbed two more tries with veteran John Doyle starting the party with a 79th minute effort. Final score was Town 50, Cloncurry 8.
