The game was between Southland Rams and Otago Whalers. Played at Dunedin Saturday September 7th .

It was the final game in the South Island Rugby League  Premiership competition .

Otago took the win with a full time score of 38  to 22 . The half time score was Otago 24 / Southland 18 .

Otago Whalers will now head to Auckland next month to play the top North Island team at Mt Smart Stadium  . Otago made it through with a very narrow margin, had the Rams scored another try in the  final game it would have been them heading to Auckland .

 

However the Rams deserve full credibility for winning all of their other provincial games this season and performing very well for the last two seasons – Very commendable considering another certain sports code has struggled to gain any wins in recent seasons – yet that code  attracts  a large amount more funding than  what is apportioned to the Southland Rams.
