Tasmania's Thor Boscott tackles NSW/ACT captain Lloyd Perris

TASMANIA has won the division two title despite losing the final game of the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships to the NSW/ACT Rams by 18 points. 

NSW/ACT, Queensland and Tasmania all won two second-division games for the carnival, but Tasmania claimed the title with a superior percentage. 

The Rams ended Tasmania's hopes of going through the championships unbeaten with their 6.10 (46) to 4.4 (28) win, which was led by captain Lloyd Perris. 

Perris gathered 21 disposals and worked tirelessly throughout the game. He sent the ball inside 50 on four occasions, had three clearances and also laid eight tackles. 

It closed a consistent championships for Perris, whose endurance, work ethic, leadership and skills inside the contest are his main traits. 

Perris is a scholarship holder with the Sydney Swans, which means the club can automatically list him at the NAB AFL Draft with their last selection. 

Michael Gibbons continued his reliable efforts through the Rams' midfield, while Isaac Heeney, eligible for next year, provided run and drive. 

Marking forward Max King followed his four-goal effort in round four with another three majors against Tasmania. 

Zac Webster was Tasmania's best in a sluggish outing at Victoria Park, gathering 20 touches and kicking a classy third-quarter goal. 

After some excellent form in previous weeks, Tasmania's star midfielder Kade Kolodjashnij (15 disposals) and ruckman Toby Nankervis (17 disposals) had quieter days. 

NSW/ACT           1.3        2.5        4.9    6.10 (46)
TASMANIA         0.1        1.3        3.4    4.4 (28)

GOALS

NSW: King 3, Edwards, Ellis, Howard
Tasmania: Bellchambers, Grey, Mannering, Webster 

BEST
NSW/ACT: Perris, Barrett, Heeney, King, Head, Davis
Tasmania: Webster, Grey, K.Kolodjashnij, Willis, Mullins, Donnelly
