THE Myall Coast Mudcrabs entertained a great local crowd in their clash against Old Bar Clams last Saturday at Myall Park completing Round 11 of the Lower Mid North Coast Rugby Union Competition.
For most of the first half, the scores were even at 7 all, however the second half was pro Muddies with seven tries scored all of whom were converted due to an increase in players and helped by the largest bench ever since the Mudcrabs formed their team back in 2012.
Whilst it was difficult to choose “best players”, notable performers in the forwards were Nick and Kayden John, William Finau, Ray Sharp, Jackson Page, James Farmer and captain Ashley Rushby.
With the pack moving forward, the backs clearly outshone the Clams with our best players being, Chris Sando, “the little champion” Nathan Colver who had obviously recovered from his previous injury, Danny Lawrence, Pat Laver and Trent Page.
Karl Nickle scored a never to be forgotten try from the half way line, ducking and weaving around the Clams players ultimately diving over the try line directly under the goal post with the final score for the Muddies being 56-7.
Third home game this coming Saturday against the Forster Dolphins at Myall Park, kickoff 3pm.
