The Mullumbimby Giants stuck to their winning formula last Sunday downing Casino 20–14, setting up a top-of-the table clash against Tweed Coast this Sunday.
‘It is always a tough journey out to Casino. They are always competitive at home and on Sunday it was no different
‘We started well and we maintained the intensity throughout the game. We looked the better side all game and the score line reflected that.
‘I’m very proud of the effort the team put in.
‘The Giants are undefeated this season and have been able to execute a winning formula.
‘We complete our sets and hold on to the ball, so we can use our attacking options out wide.
‘We were able to make more of the possession we had than Casino could.
‘The team knows we have a lot of points in us. Getting the simple things right has given the team a lot of confidence,’ said coach Dallas Waters.
The win sets up a top-of-the-table clash against the Tweed Coast next Sunday at Mullumbimby’s Les Donnelly Field.
Both teams have five wins from five games, along with Cudgen.
‘Tweed is a yardstick we can measure ourselves against; there is no bigger challenge,’ he said. ‘There is real anticipation within the club for the game.’
All the action starts from 12pm Sunday May 12, at Mullumbimby’s home ground.
The Byron Red Devils fell a try short of collecting their first win of the season and pulling off a remarkable upset when they hosted Cudgen last Sunday.
Cudgen sat at the top of the table when they ran out against Byron last Sunday, who are yet to win in 2018.
Byron ended up one try short, losing 28–24.
Next Sunday Byron heads out to New Park to take on the Kyogle Turkeys. They have two wins for the season and lost to Murwillumbah last week.
