Mustangs leave rivals in their wake

MURWILLUMBAH belted Grafton 62-0 to reclaim top spot in the Northern Rivers rugby league competition yesterday after Seagulls were shock losers to South Grafton.

On a mixed day for Tweed teams, Seagulls crashed to a 34-28 loss, their second defeat in three weeks; South Tweed's woes continued as the Koalas went down 44-30 to Casino and Craig Thurston scored five tries as Cudgen bounced back from last week's loss to lowly Casino with an impressive 54-12 win over Lower Clarence.

At Stan Sercombe Oval, the Mustangs weren't firing on all cylinders but they never looked like losing against the competition's bottom side in a one-sided affair.

Second-rower Jarrod Flick and centre Jason Willis both bagged doubles in the 11-try rout.
