Swans dive as Saints march in
SAWTELL has continued their unbeaten start to the season with a comprehensive win over the Coffs Swans at Fitzroy Oval.
Anyone doubting the toughness of the game was given a stark reminder in the second quarter when a sickening head clash put a dampener on proceedings. The game was stopped for half-an-hour while young Swan Darby Pearce was taken by ambulance after clashing with Simon Taylor.
The Swans were unable to recover after a competitive first quarter where they frustrated the normally clinical Saints.
As the match progressed however the Saints were able to pick their listless opponents to pieces through the midfield.
Courtney Tune dominated the ruck supplying well to Luke Matthews and Mark Couzens.
Despite missing several first graders the class difference was there to see and despite the best efforts of Peter Robinson on Ben Hooke the Saints had too many avenues to goal.
In comparison, there were few options for the Swans past halfway.
Kris Rundell battled valiantly for the Swans but Saturday’s performance suggests it will be a long year for the red and whites.
