Ghosts side unchanged
By TONY WHITE
IN a bid to promote a cohesive unit Grafton Ghosts have named an unchanged side from last week's opening Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League round to tackle Casino at the Cougars home ground, Queen Elizabeth Park tomorrow.
Apart from Jeremy Fahey on the bench, it is the same team that narrowly lost to South Tweed Heads 24-20.
Ghosts president Michael Rogan said: "They went good last week even though we lost and our young locals are training the place down."
Casino coach Cavill Huegh was delighted with his team's first up 32-22 defeat of 2004 premiers Mullumbimby in the opening game.
"Our strength again should be in our forwards and defence," he said. Former Gympie forwards Mark O'Neill and Ashleigh Williams, the return of hooker Bede McPherson and Cudgen second-rower Travis Fall, have added weight and depth.
