Council acknowledges desire for house relocations, buybacks and land swaps

Last night Lismore Council looked at House Relocations, Land swaps and Buy Backs when Councillor Adam Guise’s moved a motion that “Council acknowledges flood impacted ratepayers' desire for house relocations, buybacks and land swaps."

It was a below-par performance on Saturday from the Rebels on sponsors and supporters day, eventually scrapping out a 20–13 win over an enthusiastic Casino side at Bangalow last Saturday.

Tries to fullback Will Latham and winger Chris Bleakley in the first half were enough to secure the win. Hemi Mullen converted both and Will Latham kicked two penalties.

Casino scored a converted try and kicked two penalties, which was a fair reward for their effort across the park. It was evident the Rebels are yet to fully gel and in weeks to come against the top teams they will need to sort out their game or risk the chance of some heavy defeats.

Numerous opportunities were created but because of poor decision making any pressure built was lost. Team discipline and skills were atrocious at times keeping Casino in with a sniff. In second grade Bangalow came up against a well-drilled Kyogle side who were in control for the majority of the game, winning convincingly 30–0.

Another top effort from the boys playing full games and backing up for firsts.

This weekend 1sts and 2nds are away to Grafton, which will be a big test for the club. A special thanks to all our sponsors; we hope you enjoyed the day.
