Carisbrook’s back-to-back premiership wins can be credited to “hard work and strong leadership” said Carisbrook co-coach Luke Treacy after a huge grand final victory over Natte Bealiba.
Treacy, who played in last year’s grand final win, said he’s “really happy” with the amount of work his Redbacks playing group has put in since last year’s title.
“This group has worked harder than any group that I have been a part of. We didn’t just think it was going to happen again, we worked hard to make it happen and I’m so proud of the boys,” Treacy said.
“The harder you work the luckier you get some times and it’s really well deserved.”
Carisbrook co-coach Jackson Bowen was awarded the best on ground medal during the win while co-captain Nick Wright was awarded the VCFL medal for his performance in the 14.11 (95) to 3.5 (23) victory.
“It was a really big team effort, but I thought our leaders were really fantastic. Jackson and Nick, who have played important leadership roles this year, receiving best on ground meant that we were led from the front by our leaders,” Treacy said.
