Seahorses take care of business

THE massive scoreline was always predictable but in a sense, yesterday's mauling of an undermanned Macleay Valley by Woolgoolga was a danger game.

The result was never in danger but the fact that the Seahorses could have slipped into some nasty habits so close to the finals was reason enough for Woolgoolga coach Darren Leaney to do everything in his power to keep his boys focussed on the job at hand.

Scoring 15 tries suggests that the Woopi boys were pretty switched on as they constantly found holes in the Mustangs' defence to record a comfortable 88-18 win.

Winger Dane Henderson-Smith scored a hat-trick while Will Fernando, Ben Gorman, Tim McManus and Drew Vines each chimed in with a double.

Woolgoolga face another match next weekend that they're expected to win.

Macksville though will throw everything at the Seahorses, ensuring Leaney's boys will again have to be on their toes.

If Woolgoolga win on Sunday and Orara Valley lose to Dunghutti, then the Seahorses will finish the year as minor premiers.
