THE united force that is Panmure was typified by the reaction from co-captains Sam Mahony and Chris Bant.
When asked to describe the premiership win, Bant and Mahony came up with the same word.
Bant returned to Panmure this season after a one season stint at Terang Mortlake and contributed two vital third- quarter goals in Saturday's victory.
"I came back because I have so many great mates here and there has been some tough times for Panmure," Bant said.
"It was a tough game and being captain does give a bit of extra incentive but the great thing is it's all about the team and sharing this premiership."
Mahony said it was an honour to captain the team.
"It is a special moment to be part of this win," Mahony said. Family ties were an important part of the win for Mahony as he shared it with first cousin, housemate and great mate Tom Wright.
While Mahony and Wright were part of the victorious team, Mahony's brothers Ben and Paddy were unlucky not to share in the performance.
Paddy injured his shoulder in the second semi-final, while Ben was omitted after the preliminary final.
Youngest brother Tom also played some senior games this season.
