The Mullumbimby Moonshiners strengthened their position on top of the Far North Coast Rugby table on Saturday after collecting maximum points against the Grafton Redmen.
Frustratingly for fans and players it was the result of the Redmen forfeiting – an issue that is currently crossing all codes.
It also meant Ladies Day being postponed until the game against Ballina on August 24. However, this Saturday’s game against second place Lismore is set to be an absolute belter. It will be the biggest crowd of the season with old Moonshiners from far and wide in town to watch the new breed of Shiners strut their stuff.
The players are now coming off a three-week break but will be fully primed as the stakes are high. Honours are even after two games between these teams in 2013.
A Moonshine victory on Saturday at Brunswick Heads will secure the Minor Premiership; the game starts at 2pm. It would be a fitting way to kick off celebrations for the night’s 25th anniversary dinner at the Brunswick Heads Bowlo from 6pm.
There are a few tickets still available that can be purchased by contacting the Bowlo during business hours.
