Taking on the world
IT'S the opinion of most that if Woolgoolga are to proceed to next week's Group 2 grand final, mercurial five-eighth Arthur Murray has to put in a blinder tomorrow when they meet a fired-up Sawtell in the preliminary final. Many is the time over the past two seasons that the Seahorses have been stung into action by a piece of Murray magic that has left opponents, spectators and even teammates shaking their head in disbelief at the amazing things that he can do. A long-distance cut-out pass, an impossible sideline conversion, a bomb that leaves an opposition fullback shaking in his boots or an inside ball that no-one can see are just some of the tricks that Woolgoolga's magic man can call on in a time of need. It's guaranteed that the Panthers will be doing everything within their power to stop the catalyst of so many of Woolgoolga's attacking raids as both clubs strive to get an opportunity to break agonisingly long premiership droughts. n Turn to page 78 for a full preview of tomorrow's cut-throat preliminary final between Woolgoolga and Sawtell.
