Marathon of rugby in Coffs

PLAYING six games on two fields in one afternoon may be the highlight of today’s action at Coffs Coast Advocate Rugby Park but the real story of the day lies elsewhere.

The Coffs Crushers are determined to prove their premiership credentials today when they meet the undefeated Port Pirates.

Having secured a position in the top two on Tuesday night against the Breakers, the Crushers can now entrench themselves in that position if they can knock off the competition leaders.

The short break after a bruising contest may be against them but the steely resolve this team has found could take it all the way.

The Breakers also play at home this afternoon and they should record a valuable win over South West Rocks.
