Townsville Stingers skipper Jack Althaus spoke to QRL TV after winning "nerve-wracking" Cyril Connell Cup final against the Sunshine Coast.

The Stingers were pushed all the way in the Under 16 final by the Falcons, only claiming victory in extra time.

Althaus spoke about how their team call "The Net" helped the side focus and come back from being down on the scoreboard to put themselves into a position to claim the win.
