Boxhead aims to go out on top

By BRADS GREENSHIELDS

HE says that tomorrow's Group 2 grand final is going to be his swansong.

The form that the man they call 'Boxhead' has been in this year, many at Sawtell believe that prop Neal McCarthy might be calling it quits a little early.

It's fair to say that in 2006, McCarthy has put on more hits than ABBA.

Part of the strong Panther pack that includes captain-coach Craig Wallace, Brad Wykes and the hard running back-rower Damian Irvine, McCarthy has been part of the quick roll-on that Sawtell have used so successfully this year to place their opponents under enormous pressure.

No doubt McCarthy is hoping that tomorrow the pack can put on a virtuoso performance and there could be no sweeter way for Sawtell to farewell their popular veteran than to ensure he leaves the field of battle a premiership hero.
