Keeping it simple works wonders for Comets

IN THE second half of its clash against Macksville, Coffs Harbour looked like the team that has played in the past three Group 2 grand finals.

At the interval the Comets only led by two points after an error riddled first half but come the second half something clicked for the red and gold.

The Comets scored five unanswered tries to run away with a 48-16 victory and Coffs Harbour coach Kerrod Selmes said wehat he saw in the second 40 minutes is the type of football he's been looking for almost since the start of the season.

"That's what happens when you complete your sets," Selmes said.

"I honestly believe that when we complete like that we're capable of beating anybody."

Early on though Selmes admits he was scratching his head looking for the winning formula.

"Credit to Macksville as they were strong opposition in the first half but the second half showed what we're can do when we hold on to the football."

Bellinger valley-Dorrigo is still without a win for the season but came agonisingly close to doing so when the Magpies played out a high scoring draw against Sawtell.
