In the Northern Rivers Rugby League competition, things are getting warmer as the season draws closer to the finals.

The Ballina Seagulls and the Grafton Ghosts will play the reserves and first grade round 11 catch up game match tonight at Kingsford Smith Park in Ballina.

While the Ballina reggies won’t make a dent in the ladder with a win or a loss, the firsts is another issue with Ballina sitting just above the Ghosts. A loss to the Seagulls would see Grafton sitting way too close for comfort with and equal win rate.

Only reserve grade and first grade are playing, the 18s game will be re-scheduled for another date TBA – the reggies will be kicking off  between 7.30-8pm – rug up and come to Kingsford Smith Park for some excellent football.

Meanwhile in the Byron Shire… The local shire derby captains picturedReggies Brian Woods and Reece Egan , Under 18s Aaron walker and Jacob Carter and A Grade Ryan O’Connell and Dan Molenaar – met on neutral territory at the halfway point on the Tyagarah overpass for a snapshot. A great day of local footy begins on Sunday at Red Devil Park from noon.
