The Coffs Swans have made both Grand Finals but will have their work cut out against strong opposition.
In the Under 13s they will face the Lower Clarence who have had a strong debut year in the North Coast competition. Their side is professionally run, with Jake Brown their key player as a skilled midfielder. The Swans have talent of their own in Jacob Sincock, and state representative, Remy Bordignon.
The Under 15s will have Sawtell starting slight favourites. Saying this, their side is underdone having not seen much game time in the last fortnight. Jake Saunders is a dynamic player in the ruck and midfield. Tristan Pennant and Cruz Hastings are other players to watch.
The Swans won their way through after a tight encounter with their cross-town rivals, North Coffs. McKinlay Pearce is one of a few stars in the Swans outfit. Damien Attwood, Zach Symons and Reed Clayton are also mature types in the age group who will be important to the Swans chances.
