Uni Shield hopes are over

GRAFTON High has bowed out of the statewide University Shield after being upstaged by Dubbo Senior College in their semi-final showdown yesterday.

Dubbo were too big, strong and well drilled for the home side who were brave in defeat.

Grafton High coach Andrew Hartmann, who played a crucial role in the Grafton Ghosts' premiership win on Sunday, said he was proud of the character his team showed.

"I thought the boys played with great heart, and spirit," Hartmann said.

"Unfortunately we were down on numbers today and actually finished short after a couple of injuries.

"Full credit to the boys who played today for their commitment."

The semi-finals is the furtherest that a Grafton High team has progressed in the rugby league competition.

Dubbo's win yesterday sealed their place in the grand final to be played at Toyota Park, Cronulla, on Tuesday.
