Swans wary of wounded Tigers

GRAFTON'S season could best be encapsulated by the nursery rhyme about the little girl who had a little curl.

"When she was good, she was very very good and when she was bad she was horrid," the nursery rhyme goes.

The Tigers performances are stunningly similar.

Culminating in a forfeit to Port Macquarie last week, Grafton has seen its season go from being an upset victory away from challenging for the double chance to now fighting to hold its place in the final four.

Not that the Coffs Swans will be taking the opposition easily. Playing coach Jay Guthrie is ensuring his team prepares for the best that Grafton has to offer.

"We make a point of respecting our opposition every time we play, especially Grafton," Guthrie said.

"At this stage of the year they're dangerous because I think they see themselves a good finals team."
