Foxsports has the story (but no match video) of the Lime Green finally victorious in the Desperation Cup against the Dragons:

Ferguson only narrowly avoided the same fate as sacked fullback Josh Dugan two weeks ago after skipping a team rehab session and then posting a photograph of themselves drinking alcohol on a rooftop online.
