Adamson relishes a new role at fullback


TALENTED Grafton utility Chris Adamson returns to his favoured fullback role when the Ghosts host unbeaten competition leaders Tweed Heads Seagulls at Frank McGuren Park tomorrow.

"I'm likely to be kept pretty busy back there, but hopefully it's not all one way traffic," Adamson said.

Adamson has been one of the Ghosts best and most consistent players despite the club's horrid run winning just one game.

"I'm glad to be back at fullback, I really enjoy it," Adamson said. "I've been a bit all over the shop this year.

"I can chime into the backline when I want and try and save a few tries. Last week against Tweed I thought we held our own for 50 minutes then ran out of steam.

"There's still confidence in the side.

"The morale's good, just about everything has been sorted out internally and we're all keen for a win."

Adamson said stopping the Seagulls ball carriers would be paramount tomorrow.

"That's been one of our problems," he admitted. "We've worked on that.

"We had a good fitness training session on Tuesday and the ballwork was good on Thursday.

"We're hoping to take that on the paddock on Sunday."
