David Shield wins the Grand Final!
For the second time in 3 years, David Shield has won the Premiership. As predicted, the contest with Tim Eckert was too tight to call: both forecast brilliantly with a score of 1, but the draw was good enough for David because of his higher ladder position.
Congratulations to David and all the other prize winners. Thanks to all who competed and made this a memorable season; hopefully see you in 2019.
