SUNDAY is shaping up to be a big day for the Moruya Sharks.
The club is hosting its traditional rivals, Narooma, in three grades.
After a big win in round one by the first grade side, the Sharks are expecting a much tougher contest against an improved Devils outfit.
Games kick-off at midday with the league-tag, followed by reserve grade at 1pm and first grade at 2.45pm.
The Sharks will be without two representative players, Dean Scott and Jake Clarke, who will be in action for the Greater Southern Region against Riverina in Camden.
On a positive note for the Sharks, the side will welcome back Caine Brierley from injury and Shaun Staples for the important clash.
A special guest of Moruya will be at the game.
Former Group 16 president and long-time patron George Barker will watch from the side lines as he always been a big supporter of Narooma and Moruya.
The under 18s won’t be at Ack Weyman Oval.
Instead the team travels to Bega to face the competition leaders.
The Sharks praised Jacob Zutt and his Southern Stingrays under 18s team mates, who performed well at the Country Championships at Muswellbrook last weekend.
The boys were narrowly beaten by last year’s champions, 14-12, prior to beating Central Coast 16-nil.
At the Group 16 meeting on Wednesday night it was confirmed that Moruya’s bid to host the Group’s presentation night was successful.
The gala night will be held at the Moruya Golf Club on August 7 and the club encourages all to attend.
A highlight of the night will be the naming of the first grade best and fairest player after a countdown of 3-2-1 points awarded by the referees during the season.
Details and ticketing of the event will be released closer to the date.
