Redmen sides facing off
REDMEN Steakhouse will look to get its season back on track in its intra-club rivalry with Redmen Aussie tomorrow.
Steakhouse is the Grafton Netball defending premier, but it is Aussie that carries momentum into the clash on the back of a 34-29 victory over SSB Top Shelf in round 4.
Both sides have two wins from the first four rounds after Steakhouse surrendered an early lead last Saturday to go down 34-31 against GHS Pink Ladies.
The Redmen derby gets A Grade action underway at 1.30pm, followed by SSB Top Shelf and undefeated Tucabia Opals at 2.30pm, and Pink Ladies against Waratahs at 3.30pm at the Westward Park complex.
Net Set Go had a great start on Saturday with more than 40 five-to-seven-year-olds taking to the courts. Skills and drills were mixed in with fun and giggles for the first week.

A four-week umpires clinic also begins at 11.30am, and is aimed at new and beginner umpires.

All fees are now due and must be paid before play tomorrow.
Junior players attended a rep carnival at Mullumbimby on Sunday. The 12s, who had three wins and four narrow losses, used teamwork and passing skills to improve on their last carnival performance.
The 13s showed improvement during the day, rising to the challenge of playing the older U14 teams.
The 14s started to gel and came out strong in each game. Emersyn Burton was injured in play and the GNA wishes her a speedy recovery.
The 15s had a slow start with limited connections on court. They displayed passages of good play with some narrow losses.
All coaches and managers are proud of the players and will be looking to further develop team skills at training.
