Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

WITH their new footy jumpers, the mighty Port Dou­glas Un­der-8 Crocs were jump­ing out of their skin on a fresh Sun­day morn­ing match against the North Cairns Tigers.

Lead­ing from the front by match day was cap­tain Taj “Ling” An­der­son who kept his for­wards busy with many rak­ing left-foot kicks deep into the Crocs’ for­ward line where Hugo “Mur­phy” El­li­son and Kalan “Mc­Der­mott” Poole ran wild and stretched the Tigers’ de­fence.

Im­proved Daniel “Lake” Har­ring­ton and Ethan “Chicken Wing” Scott were cre­ative in the mid­dle and the solid ruck­ing con­tests of Sam “Cox” Wall and the re­bound­ing ef­forts of Kai “Hern” Durie and Colby “Man­son” Tay­lor kept the crowd well en­ter­tained.

The lit­tle pocket rocket Hay­den “Libba” Cress­well played well in all three zones throughout the match while, when An­gus “Lewis” van Rouy­lan wasn’t trip­ping over his shoe laces, was play­ing a rip­per of a game dishing out many link­ing hand­balls to his part­ners in crime Tam
