[TEAM] were crowned Super League champions last night after [FORENAME] [SURNAME] incredibly scored all 24 points in [his] side's remarkable 24-20 win, over Leeds Rhinos, in the Grand Final at Old Trafford. Despite [TEAM] starting the game as huge outsiders, the match-winning performance from [SURNAME] brought about one of the biggest shocks in rugby league history. [SURNAME] was named '[Man] of The Match' as [he] showed great skill in an amazing second-half comeback.
Opponents Leeds had been winning 20-12 for the whole of the second half before [AGE]-year-old [SURNAME] scored two memorable solo tries to send the [TEAM] fans absolutely wild. [FORENAME] [SURNAME] is already being talked of as a future Great Britain captain after last night's dazzling display.
[SURNAME] showed no signs of nerves as [TEAM] made a great start. With just seven minutes gone [SURNAME] picked up the ball 30 yards from the try-line and, after side-stepping Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield, [he] burst between the posts for the opening score. Unfortunately, [his] team-mates weren't quite so successful and, in the space of just ten minutes, the Rhinos ran in three converted tries and slotted over a penalty to race into a 20-6 lead. The [TEAM] players were devastated, but the coach knew exactly what he had to do to change things round. "Give [FORENAME] [SURNAME] the captain's armband"Â, he yelled from the touchline. Within 60 seconds, [TEAM] had got themselves back into the game.
Unsurprisingly, it was [SURNAME] who did the damage, racing onto a grubber kick from one of [his] team-mates before slipping inside the opposing player to score. Suddenly, [TEAM] were on top but, for most of the second half, they were unable to turn their superiority into points. "Come on, come on, we can do this"Â, shouted [SURNAME] as the game entered its 75th minute. Receiving the ball on the left wing, the [AGE] year-old jinked outside two Leeds defenders before going over in the corner. The [TEAM] supporters in the capacity crowd were ecstatic as their hopes of victory were re-ignited. That still left [TEAM] trailing by two points but, thanks to their new star, [FORENAME] [SURNAME], unbelievably the best was yet to come. With the game entering its final minute, [SURNAME] caught a high kick from Sinfield on the halfway line and set off running towards the Leeds line.
Three defenders tried to tackle [him], but one by one [he] brushed them off with amazing strength, before hurtling [himself] between the posts for one of the best ever tries scored at Old Trafford.
The [TEAM] players raced to celebrate with [SURNAME] as [he] became buried by the entire team. When [he] eventually emerged [he] saluted the delirious [TEAM] fans with a punch in the air. It was an incredible end to an incredible final, and one that [FORENAME] [SURNAME], the [TEAM] players and supporters, and indeed Rugby League fans all over the world, will remember for as long as the game is played!
