Grafton out for revenge

By TONY WHITE

GRAFTON High School will be out for revenge when they tackle Kingscliff High in the North Coast final of the State-wide all schools Waratah Shield Rugby Union competition in Grafton today.

Grafton were beaten by Kingscliff away in last year's final.

"We're hoping to reverse the result this time around, we've got some good union players this year," the team's coach, Craig Howe, said.

Grafton won its way into the final by beating South Grafton High 24-19, Dorrigo High 22-3 and Wauchope High 21-3.

If successful Grafton will play the winner of the Merewether High versus Farrer High (Tamworth) in the group final.

A win in the group final would catapult Grafton into the final eight when they are scheduled to play the win- ners of the other groups for a place in the finals series in Sydney.

Grafton players to watch include forwards Nick Collie and Brendan Gilbert, star five-eighth Khan Williams and fullback James Connor.

Grafton High are the current Daily Examiner Rugby League Shield holders.

Today's match at Grafton High School begins at noon.
