RUGBY LEAGUE: The Biloela Panthers exacted some sweet revenge last Saturday when they beat out Woorabinda for the Cup grand final in Biloela's 9-a-side rugby league competition.

The Panthers were beaten by the same side in last year's final, having come agonisingly close to victory in front of a home crowd, so the 24-4 victory was especially satisfying.

Panthers coach Ryan Wilson said he was very pleased with his team's performance throughout the whole day.

"We ended up running away with it in the end," he said proudly.

"It was good fun, and good fitness for us in the lead up to the Rocky 9's.

"We used our subs a lot better, really used that interchange.

"It's good to get that win to start the season, and then we can build from that achievement."

Centre Byron Hassall, halfback Shaun Atkinson and fullback Brandon Gray were standouts for the Panthers during their win, which makes them a top contender going into this Saturday's 9's competition at Rockhampton.

Earlier in the day, the Oakey Red Belly Blacks won the Plate grand final, while the Bundy Brothers took out Biloela's first women's competition.
