Lennox Head are the 2009 Far North Coast Rugby Union major premiers.

The Trojans overcame a half-time deficit of 19-7 to storm home and beat Lismore 28-19 in the grand final at Crozier Field, Lismore, on Saturday, September 12.

The win gave Lennox a second successive major premiership and came after a late-season revival which saw them reverse poor early-season form and win nine successive games, including the grand final.

Lennox Head scored four tries to three, with Matt Aherne, Mathew Barnes, Sam Stewart and Luke Schaefer crossing for five-pointers. Adam Gordon converted all four tries.

Will Cotterill, Keith Morris and Matt Larsson crossed in the first half for Lismore, with Ben Felicioni converting twice.

But it was all Lennox Head in the second half.

Lismore contested all four grand finals, but came away with only one win, a 13-5 triumph over Wollongbar Alstonville in Under-19s.

Ballina won two grand finals: a 39-7 win over Lismore in Reserves, and a 15-6 win over Lismore in Third Grade.

Bangalow took out the Village Competition grand final, beating Yamba 13-8.
