Flying Swans take out Tigers

COFFS Swans turned in their best performance of the season against a depleted Grafton at Fitzroy Oval.

The red and whites turned it on in front of their home crowd as they quickly gained ascendancy of the contest.

While the Swans were good, the Tigers were terrible and gave their opponents too much latitude over the ground.

Kris Rundell was impressive in the centre clearances, enhancing his best and fairest chances with another dominant display.

Dane Kennedy played his best game for the season and, like Rundell, won plenty of the hard ball in the middle.

Evan Duryea returned to the fold and had an immediate impact in front of goal.

Starting in the centre, his long kicking and contested marking helped him to a 10-goal haul.

There were few positives for the Grafton side.

Kodie O'Malley and Graeme Connolly tried hard but the side lacked forward impact and accountability down back in the absence of Justin Darby.

The win sees the Swans leapfrog Nambucca Valley into fourth place, a position they will look to consolidate when the two sides face off on Saturday.
