The three sides participated in a non-competitive round robin competition that showcased plenty of skills, thrills and spills- although perhaps more of the latter was applicable for some of the Broken Pizzles.
Half time consisted of a yarn between players and a schooner or two to keep the engines running.
Plenty of tries were scored on both sides, but president Ron Behrend assured the Champion that the Broken Pizzles had the visitors on the back foot.
Grafton managed to fill a full side on the day and Lismore scraped up five or six.
Moree also managed to fill a side with a reserve or two.
“It’s a game of football played in the right spirit between mates,” Behrend said.
“Everyone had a great time both on and off the field,” he added.
After the match the Golden Oldies enjoyed a few more quiet ones before heading out for a meal and a presentation.
Fifty-six people attended the function.
“The meal and presentation was fantastic.
“Everybody had a great evening and were looking forward to coming back next year,” Behrend said.
A breakfast for the players was also hosted the following morning.
Pat Downes showed he still had some skills with the pig skin and was voted Moree’s Best and Fairest after a solid performance.
Grafton host a carnival in February each year and Moree returns the favour.
The Broken Pizzles will have a week to recover before hitting the field next Saturday for a game against Foster at Weebolla Oval.
