Rep games last weekend:

The Sunshine Coast Falcons and Toowoomba Clydesdales battled it out in yet another epic finale, with the Falcons just clinching the 47th Battalion silverware in Toowoomba at the weekend after a 16-14 win last year to the Clydesdales. With just under a minute remaining, the Clydesdales gave away a penalty with the Falcons instantly opting to kick for goal, and ultimately securing the win and the 47th Battalion in an epic affair 12-8.

Sunshine Coast's Tyler Oxenham was announced the Player of the Final for his leadership and direction in the halves alongside Corey McGrath who also played well for the Falcons. In the plate final Central Highlands lost to South West Country 18-6.

In the Women's division, history was made as the Rockhampton Rustlers secured their maiden title with a 22-6 win over the Sunshine Coast Falcons.

Segment 2 (a): Interview: Tom Mather  tribute to Cliff Watson

Renown author Tom Mather – book called From Saint to Shark, Cliff Watson tells of the unique introduction he had into the game of rugby league at top club St Helens in the 1960s via a newspaper advertisement. He traces his career at club and international level in England - notching up nearly 400 appearances for Saints and a further 30 for Great Britain. And he describes his time at the Cronulla Sharks Club in Australia during the early years of their existence, culminating in their first ever Grand Final appearance, dubbed the 'dirtiest final ever'. Watson won every honour in the game and was voted a member of both the Saints and Sharks dream teams. He describes many of the big games that he starred in, covers events that occurred off the field and talks of rival players he had run-ins with. He also deals with several previously unanswered questions relating to the 1973 controversial Australian Grand Final. Watson is forthright in how the Ashes were won and lost on his tours down under and is equally forthright in his views of why England continue to lag behind both Australia and New Zealand. It is a book that will be enjoyed by all lovers of that period of the game - often referred to as the 'era of the biff' - when every team had a hard man and Cliff, a skilful and fearless player, was one of the hardest!
