Grafton High books a date with Farrer



A TWO-TRY performance from Carson Galloway helped catapult Grafton High School into the quarter finals of the statewide Waratah Shield rugby union competition yesterday.

Grafton High prevailed over Kingscliff High School in a tense encounter, clinching a spot in the final eight in the dying minutes of the match.

Kingscliff trailed for most of the match before scoring from a charge-down with 10 minutes remaining.

However, spurred on by a boisterous home crowd, Grafton rallied and again went back to their pick and drive forward attack, with Galloway sneaking in near the post to seal a 15-12 win for Grafton.

Grafton was best served by Cameron Wicks, Scott Bennett ? who added a conversion and penalty goal ? Ben Ellis, Bryce Speechley and Nick Collie.

The powerful Farrer Agricultural High School awaits Grafton in the quarter final.
