First Grade - Sunbury Tigers v Casey Sharks
The Sunbury Tigers won its first Victorian Rugby League First Grade Premiership when they outclassed the Casey Sharks 48-10 in the 2009 Grand Final. The Tigers had easily accounted for the Sharks in their previous two meetings through the home and away season and went into the game full of confidence. This confidence would have been slightly jilted when Matt Currie drop the ball from the kick off gifting Casey possession ten metres from the Sunbury line. The Sunbury defence stood up to the initial Casey onslaught and were able to go the lenght of the field to scored on their first set through Brendan Train. The Tigers continued to put pressure on the shaky Sharks defence and subsequent tries to Michael Faamausili, Josh Jerome, Terry Constantinou and Matt Croker effectively ended the game at half time with the Tigers holding a commanding 30-10 lead. The second half was merely the clubs playing out time, however the highlight was the try scored by Sunbury 148 game veteran to put the icing on the Sunbury cake.
Sunbury Tigers 48 (Tries: B.Train 2, M.Faamausili, J.Jerome, T.Constantinou, M Currie, J Barker, M Croker, T Korteman Goals: J Jerome 6) defeated Casey Sharks 18 (Tries: M.Seve, O Kubuyawa, D Sega, J Kiriau Goals: T Antonia)

The significant of the breeze became more apparent in the second half and when Altona score their second try of the half with 10 minutes remainding the Grand Final was in the balance.
