ALBURY Thunder recorded a thrilling come-from-behind victory to successfully defend their Group 9 premiership.
The boys trailed Gundagai by two points at half-time but fought back to record a commendable 30-20 win in front of a huge, vocal crowd at Wagga's Equex Centre.
The win makes Albury Thunder the fourth back-to-back premiers in 42 years.
Mitch Davis was named the John Hill Memorial Medal winner, as the best player in the grand final.
