CHINCHILLA Bulldogs anthems are echoing across Roma's Bassett Park this evening after the club's A-grade and Reserve-grade men both snatched premiership wins.

Both teams were also minor premiers.

The undefeated Chinchilla Reserve-grade took to the field first for their stoush with Roma Cities.

Cities looked like it was on the way to its third home-ground win for the day when at half-time the scoreboard had them ahead 14-10.

Roma teams had already won both the under-16 and under-18 games.

Chinchilla fought back to score early in the second half and when the full-time siren sounded scores were locked at 24-24.

The game went into a nerve-wracking 20 minutes of extra-time.

With eight minutes left on the clock and scores still level, the Bulldogs scored twice to clinch the premiership and complete an undefeated season, 32-24.

The A-grade went head-to-head with St George for the big match of the day.

After going down to the Saints at their last meeting, the Bulldogs came out strong and dominated the first half to be up 12-8.

Chinchilla continued its domination into the second half and ran away with a convincing premiership victory, 44-18.

The last time both A-grade and Reserve-grade won premierships for Chinchilla was in 1994.
