GRAFTON has continued its winning ways with a strong 15.17 (107) - 10.10 (70) win against North Coffs.

Despite a late comeback from the Kangaroos, the tigers were always in control of the match to collect the 38 point win.

Numerous changes to the Grafton side failed to slow down its progress as it collected yet another comprehensive victory with Evan Dureya leading from the front for the away side with seven goals.

"It was a good performance from everyone and it is always good to win away from home," the Tiger's Ronald Davis said.

"We brought extra reserve grade players today to fill in a number of gaps and they did a great job.

"Some blokes even played two games today so it was impressive to see the team play so well considering."

The reigning AFL North Coast premiers are looking to make it three titles in a row this season but understand the rest of the competition is only getting better and better.

"North Coffs were strong today and they have a good group of youngsters who have developed well," Davis said.

"We have a few tough games on the horizon including a trip to Port Macquarie next week and then against Sawtell the week after.

"We just have to keep playing to our best and hopefully the results keep coming our way."
