Same teams, same result. That was the story of the grand final replay between champions Jacksonville Axemen and Boston 13s on the weekend.
The 13s traveled to Florida with a very different roster to last years, and although putting in for the whole 80 mins, they were no match for the experience of the Axemen outfit was clearly the difference.
For Boston, Mike Krochta, Greg Rodrigue and Anif McDonald look like having bright futures in the game, with all three having outstanding first-up performances.
The 13s travel to Baltimore to take on the Blues this weekend.
