Orara happy to say Cheesey

FOR more than 12 months Orara Valley forward Matt Cheeseman has been arguably the best impact player that comes off the bench in the competition.

On Saturday Cheeseman put another performance in that is worthy of a nomination for the award as he scored four tries while the Axemen ran away with a 62-22 victory over Dunghutti.

While the scoreline was impressive enough the fact that the Axemen got the job done with an inexperienced forward pack was an added bonus for the reigning premier.

While not complete rookies when it comes to playing first grade football players like John Boyle, Dave Mitchell and Richard Brockbank still proved an unlikely trio to be at the forefront of an Axemen pack.

But then again injuries to usual front row suspects Joel Lacey, Dan van der Donk and hooker Grant Douglass will cause a reshuffle of the team.

But the Axemen bounced back to the winners list with Dan Tempest moving from the halves to the centres where he scored 22 individual points, while centre partner Nowan Williams chimed in with a couple of tries.

Orara will host Woolgoolga this weekend in an eagerly anticipated grand final rematch.
