Ballina calls for more SES funding – again

The Ballina Shire Council has agreed to prioritise upgrading of its State Emergency Services base and to call for a new shire-wide incident control centre.

 

The Mullumbimby Giants  league team won their first game of the season 22–20, after scoring a try after the final siren playing last year’s premiers Ballina.

‘It was not a pretty performance, but a win is a win,’ said the team’s new coach Dallas Waters. ‘It is certainly a positive to travel to Ballina and take a win against the reigning premiers,’ he said.

The Mullumbimby side was largely its own worst enemy by giving away too much possession, too easily, the coach said.

‘The boys really stood up. If there is a positive to take away it is the defensive effort. They never gave up,’ he said.

The Magpies had done some good recruiting over  summer and these players added to the local talent. 

Most importantly the coach reckons the Giants had the player depth to get through a long, hard season of rugby league.

He also called for a strong crowd to support the team this Sunday when they play their first home game against Northern United.

Action from 12pm at the Manns Road Oval (Mullumbimby) when the newly formed ladies team hit the field followed by Reserves and A grade.
