Revenge for the Magpies
LOWER Clarence gained revenge for its early-season Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League loss to the Grafton Ghosts with a 36-20 victory at Frank McGuren Field on Friday night.
Magpie pivot Adam Elliott enjoyed the first game of senior football under lights at the ground scoring three tries and kicking four goals for 20 points in the game.
Lower raced away to a 26-nil lead at half-time and only two late Ghosts' tries added respectability to the score.
