Roos look too good for Tigers

NORTH Coffs have been impressive on the scoreboard in the last fortnight and will look to continue their good form against Grafton at Coffs Coast Leisure Park.

The Kangaroos notched a big win over the Swans in a scrappy affair last start and are starting to hit their straps a month out from the finals.

“Big” Ben Sykes booted 10 goals last week and has straightened the side with his presence at full-forward.

Josh Drum continued his strong form in the midfield and should get plenty of chances to pump the ball into the forward half, albeit against an improving Grafton side.

Grafton played arguably their best game of the season to register their first win since round two, much to the relief of their home supporters.

The Tigers’ midfield division was particularly impressive.

Jarrod Meade played his best game for the club in a gritty effort. Sam Morrison played well on the outside.

He certainly made an impression on the scoreboard with six majors.

New recruit Tim Jarrold needed time to work into the contest but held Aaron Clarke in the final quarter in a performance pivotal to the result.

These are talented individuals who could walk into any side, but at present there is not enough depth to challenge a top team like the Kangaroos.
