League: Windsor Wolves, Hawkesbury City miss grand finals

THE Windsor Wolves and Hawkesbury City both lost rugby league finals matches at the weekend and have fallen short of making the grand final.

The Wolves were topped by St Pats in the Penrith Junior Rugby League A Grade, while City was taken down by by the Penrith Waratahs in the A2 Grade.

Wolves coach Chris Boyd said it was a disappointing end to the season.

“St Pats are a decent side, but at the end of the day, simple dropped ball cost us and it has done all year,” he said.

Boyd said the team was missing seven players thanks to injury at the weekend, which took its toll during the match.

Boyd said it was heart-warming to see so many fans turn out at the Windsor Sports Complex to watch the team play, despite the result.

“It has been a good year for the club getting into the A Grade,” he said.

“We had a big crowd there on Sunday. I think it was worth getting out of the NSW competitions.

“The club had a good day. I think we've made a few inroads into getting the club back on the same page as everybody.”

The Londonderry Greys have qualified for the C2 Grade grand final, to be played this weekend against the Waratahs at 11.30am at Windsor.
