The NRL grand final has followed the fine form of Saturdays AFL event.

The Cronulla Sharks managed to break a 50 year drought, winning last nights grand final bash 12 points to eight.

The play of the day, it could be argued, goes to Caneron Smith for an event that took place well truely after the final siren.

Taking to the stage in the post game events Smith, who plays for Melbourne Storm, dispensed with the usual pleasentries of thanking the club, their sponosors and coaching staff. Then came this absolute gem from Cameron Smith

“On behalf of the entire Melbourne Storm footy club I’d just like to congratulate the Cronulla Sharks, their club and all the fans.

You guys have been waiting a very long time for this moment and it’s taken a lifetime and many people who supported the club for a very long time didn’t see a premiership, but everyone here has and I hope you enjoy it thoroughly.

“Well done.”

Smith showed real style and professionalism in a moment that, it could be argued, was one of the better moments in Rugby League history. Fitting for the celebration of the breaking of a 50 year grand final drought.
