From the beginning, the decisive game was fraught with nervousness and a constant struggle at the points of contact. That is why during the first minutes of the crossing, the teams barely exchanged penalties and reached the hydration break with the score 3-3.
However, everything changed from there. Just two minutes after the game restarted, John ryberg he supported in duplicate, first finding a space inside the defense and then culminating a great play on the front, to reach his eighth try in the championship and to obtain a difference of 12 points for LA Giltinis. Atlanta managed to deduct five minutes into halftime and put the game 15-10 thanks to the conquest of Marko Jansen Van Rensburg after the push of the maul.
The West team came out to the second half of the final with more determination to become the protagonist. As soon as the complement started, it made differences again; first with another criminal at the feet of Matt Giteau and then with another try on the flag, this time signed by the other wing, DTH Van Der Merwe.

In the last minute, Atlanta scored a penalty try generated by their forwards, but this simply made up the 31-17 result in favor of MLR champions LA Giltinis.
