SOUTHERN Inland rugby manager Jack Heffernan has praised the clubs for helping get a season up and running this year.
Although there was the odd reminder to adhere to social distancing requirements after inspections from NSW Health, the crowd largely adhered to procedures at Saturday's grand finals at Connolly Park.
Around 1000 spectators passed through the gates, with about 700 in the facility at any one time.
"Looking ack six months ago it looked pretty likely we wouldn't have a season at all, but to be here on grand final day is a huge achievement for everyone involved, especially the clubs who have worked so hard," Heffernan said.
"Grand final week is always a big week and it definitely made it lot harder with the ticketing, but we're happy with how it progressed and credit to everyone here who did the right thing."
Wagga City ended a 44-year drought by claiming the first grade title.
