The rain fell hard, but the Launceston Tigers fell harder on the Burnie Emus to claim the 2020 Tasmania Rugby Union championship division grand final.
The Tigers were unstoppable, commanding a 35-0 lead by halftime.
They would then let off the gas, which resulted in a final score of 40-12.
Tigers president Isaac Anderson said it was a dominant performance all round by the team.
"Our forwards dominated their pack, which set the platform of the game and our back-line played really smart in attack," he said.
"Burnie couldn't handle it."
Like many sports in Launceston on Saturday, the rain made for an interesting game of rugby.
"That made handling very difficult - the first half wasn't too bad but that second half was a shocker," Anderson said.
Anderson said fullback John Dunbar and halfback Matataiasi Katoa played key roles in the Tigers victory.
"The key to our win was our defence more so than attack - we had a really good defensive line that put pressure on Burnie all day," he said.
"We won the collisions basically, they just couldn't handle the collision zone with us and that's what really set up our victory.
"In attack, we didn't rush anything - we were patient and that paid dividends obviously."
Dunbar was named player of the match, tallying four conversions and one try.
The win would be redemption for the Tigers' 2019 players, who finished runners-up that season.
This year's grand final was also the first to be played at Royal Park since 2006.
"For those who played last year there was a vindication for all the hard work we've done this year to go back," Anderson said.
"Certainly for our club, it's a massive result. Two years ago we were basically bankrupt and didn't have a team, so to turn it around and two years later win a premiership - it's been a magnificent effort by the whole club.
"To play at home was very special for all the players and coaching staff."
