Saints put double century on Tigers

GOAL umpires deserved double pay at Richardson Park after Sawtell-Toormina walloped Grafton.

Arms waved overtime as the Saints put through 31 majors and half as many one-pointers in the 180-point victory - 31.15 (201) to 3.3 (21) - that has the senior team rapidly closing in on 1000 points for the season.

It is an extraordinary achievement for a team that has actually played fewer matches than its rivals.

Down south, it was a similar story in the battle of the birds at Paul Sheldon Oval where Port Magpies trounced Macleay Eagles by 149 points.

Player-coach Damon Munt joined Jesse Schmidt on the score sheet with six goals each but the cautionary tale again was Macleay's need to borrow troops from their opponents.

The win was costly with more names added to the casualty roll call as Port prepare for the visit from Coffs Breakers in three days when second berth goes on the line.
