On the 23rd of September the Brisbane Hustlers descended upon Melbourne to take on the Sydney Convicts and Melbourne Chargers for the title of Purchas Cup champions.
After a very successful first game in which the Hustlers dominated the Melbourne Chargers 35-Nil, the Brisbane Hustlers faced off against the reigning champions in the final. As per last year, the deciding match of the day was between the Sydney Convicts and the Brisbane Hustlers. The game was furiously fought by both teams with the Hustlers bringing a strong defence and the Convicts bringing a fast running back line. Ultimately after some very well played rugby the Sydney Convicts emerged victorious with a score of 15-12, maintaining their title for 2013.
However, the Brisbane Hustlers were extremely happy with their efforts – priding themselves on the progress they’d made; fielding a side, half of whom had not played rugby at the start of 2013 and almost defeating the reigning international champions.
The team left the field with their heads held high and with pride in what they had achieved. More importantly, they left the field with a fervor for defeating the reigning world champions at Bingham Cup in 2014.
