Ghosts chance for a first win


The Grafton Ghosts will be looking for their first win of the season when they take on Casino at home this weekend.

Club spokesperson Garry Smith said the team is very positive going into this weeks encounter and that the boys have it in their mind that this week will be their week to notch up a win.

Coming off a bye the boys had a good week at training and are fresh and ready to play Smith said.

"They are still hoping to find their first win for the season and hopefully being a home game the support from the crowd will help them notch up a win," he said.

Smith said the major team change for this week is at fullback with Chris Adamson out injured.

"Chris Adamson is out this week but he is replaced by the extremely capable Phil Warby, who is playing his third game of the season."

"Phil Warby is a former representative player and I am sure he will fill the void left by Adamson."

Smith said Casino have done very well this year and will be hard to beat but the Ghosts players are up to the challenge.

Casino RSM coach Cavill Heugh has focused on lifting his team's spirits at training this week in preparation for tomorrow's clash with the Ghosts.

The Cougars had been flying high after a promising start to the season but successive losses to Mullumbimby and Cudgen have dented their confidence.

IN OTHER games this weekend, Tweed Coast and Murwillumbah meet at Cabarita from 4pm today, and Lower Clarence and South Grafton clash in lower grades at Maclean.
