Mustangs narrowly miss out on winning Grant Cook Cup


IT WAS an emotional match for the Murwillumbah Mustangs who took on the Mullumbimby Giants for the inaugural Grant Cook Memorial Cup in Mullumbimby last Sunday, April 23.

Grant Cook, who tragically passed away during last years’ semi final against Casino played for both the Mustangs and Giants over the years.

The Mustangs lead at half-time 10 to 4 with a Mullumbimby try levelling the scores 10 all with 20 minutes left on the clock.

Another Mullumbimby try saw them take the lead and win the match 16 to 10.

In other results the Mustangs Reserve Grade team smashed Mullumbimby 50 to 6 and the Under 18s also took a win beating Mullumbimby 20 to 6.

Two local Colts players Tom Vickery and Kade Hill, have been selected to play in the 2017 Country NSW under 16s team.

They boys will travel to New Zealand and compete from July 1-9.

The Mustangs will play Lower Clarence at the Stan Sercome Oval at 2.45pm on Sunday, April 30.
