Mudcrabs claim victory against Nabiac Wallamba


The Myall Coast Mudcrabs had a great victory last Saturday against Nabiac Wallamba in round 6 of the Lower Mid North Coast Rugby competition played in windy conditions at Myall Park Hawks Nest.

It was the conditions that dictated the game with both teams faced to run into a strong south easterly breeze in one half however it was the large home crowd that had gathered to watch the double header with the local Hawks Rugby League side that got them home.

Ironically both teams played better rugby when forced to run into the breeze not using the breeze to its full extent when running with the breeze.

For the Mudcrabs Ashley Rushby was a standout scoring three of the teams four tries as well as converting all four tries that made the difference in points as Wallamba were only able to convert three of their tries.

Rushby was ably assisted in the forwards by James Farmer, Sean Blanchard and the Weir brothers Zach and Harrieson.In the backs in was the young guns who really stood up in defence and i refer to Sonny Marks, Jackson Page, Tristan Tansey and Karl Main who never stopped trying which led to the teams victory.

This result will stand the Mudcrabs in great shape to continue their form and gain some valuable competition points as they travel to Old Bar next Saturday to play Old Bar Clams at their home venue.

This will be followed by a Bye which will assist the squad to gain full fitness for the tough competition ahead.

This most pleasing result was that it was not only in front of a Vocal home crowd but also the clubs Major sponsors were on hand for the annual Sponsors Day for season 2016. A great result for all to witness.
