THE Murwillumbah Mustangs are the 2012 NRRRL Premiers after defeating the Grafton Ghosts 27-26 in the grand final today.

Murwillumbah set the pace for most of the match, with a 65th minute field goal to Matthew Goodfellow proving the difference.

After a sloppy first half, both sides have lifted their performances with the margin never being more than seven points.

It sealed an unsuccessful day for the Ghosts, that saw all three grades fall to their opponents.
