The Mullumbimby Giants sealed a knife-edge, one-point victory over Marist Brothers in the Northern Rivers Rural Rugby League when Brett Kelly kicked a field goal from roughly 20 metres out to give them a 23–22 win.

The game was a close tussle and was locked at 16–16 at half time.

Try scorers for the giants included Sio Alefosio, Jerry Byers, Dwayne Moseley, and Jason McGrady. Darcy Earl completed the scoring with three conversions.

The Mullumbimby reserves went down 22–8 and the Ladies League Touch team also lost 22–6.

It was Mullum first grade’s fifth win for the season and they sit in ninth place on the ladder.

There are just three rounds of the regular season to play.
