Souths just too classy

THE teamwork and organisational skills of the South Grafton Primary School rugby league team proved too strong for cross-town opponents Westlawn Public in yesterday's Daily Examiner Shield clash at Jabour Park.

South won the game 30-0, scoring six tries in the process against a gallant, but outclassed opponent.

The winning coach, Heath Simpson, was full of praise for his young team lauding their ability to play as a team in both attack and defence.

"We were able to score plenty of points, but when you look at the nil-scoreline against us, you could see our defence was well organised," he said.

"In attack, I was really pleased that each try we scored was the result of teamwork rather than an individual effort.

"Each try came at the end of a set of six in which we had built up pressure."

Scorers for the South Grafton Primary team were Layton Pigg (2), Joseph Rigg, Connor Daniels, Lewis Cooper and Caleb Barker with tries, while Jacab Lee, Michael Rigg and Wirri Boland each kicked a goal.
