Young Tigers are showing the way
GRAFTON'S Under-18s Australian rules team has won its consecutive five consecutive game to take the outright lead in on the competition ladder.
Coming off a big win last week at Coffs Harbour, they travelled to Macksville this week to beat Port Macquarie 62-37.
Coach Rick Hayman said that his side was down three key players but the young guys in the club really stood up and fought hard to win the game.
Best players for Grafton were Ryan Sheather, Bryce Kurtzman, Flynn Mcalister, Kelly Thompson, Andy Mahony and Justin Darby.
Rick said it was a great team effort from his guys and some others that deserve a mention are Alex Bourke, Luke Hayman, Aaron Hamilton, Cam Ross and Nathan Bennett.
This side has never before lead this competition and it's coming from two years of hard training and building on the side we had three years ago.
The Tigers will have two weeks off now because of a bye and the annual representative game.
On June 25 you will have the chance to see this side take on some of the Grafton's veterans of the game in the yearly hit out of the Grafton's old and the new.
The 18s are very keen to get revenge on the vets, after last years vets win.
Rick Hayman still needs about five players for his vets team and asks anyone who is keen to put on the boots one more time to contact him on 66427606.
