Port Macquarie has pulled out of the under-18 competition.
Port Macquarie has pulled out of the under-18 competition.

PORT Macquarie has given up on the fight to field an under-18 team in the Group 2 rugby league competition this year.

The Sharks had been struggling for months to find sufficient players to field an under-18 team.

The Sharks forfeited the club’s opening under-18 match of the season to Coffs Harbour but had hoped to use the time allowed by having the bye last week to find additional players.

With the Sharks not playing in the lower grade competition this year it means that there will be only seven teams contesting the under-18 premiership.

CORRECTION

In the story titled Bubbles first then hit surf printed on Wednesday, April 13 it was said that the water safety course was held at Coffs Harbour Memorial Swimming Pool.

The correct venue is Harbour Swim School.
