Gaffney stars in 50th match for Roosters

The Singleton Roosters will hope to return to the winners’ list when they travel to Cardiff this Saturday.

After a strong start the line-up was unable to match Killarney Vale in their 92-point defeat at Rose Point Park last week.

Defender Mitchell Gaffney was one of Singleton’s few shining lights in his 50th game.

He has been named in the best players for all four of the Roosters’ games so far this season.

“Gaff’s an extremely important part of our team, our vice-captain and he is there week in week out; you can always rely on what you’ll get out of him,” Singleton playing coach Jed Ellis Cluff explained.

“He’s the ultimate club man and we are lucky to have him.”

After two heavy defeats the Roosters will now welcome back Sam Brasington and Cameron McClelland.

The Roosters will then have a bye weekend before returning home to host Gosford in Round 7 (Saturday, May 29).

“We are looking forward to improving on last week,” Ellis Cluff continued.

“We started to show some good signs in the first half but now we’ve got to put it all together for a whole game.

Alex Mitchell and Andrew Scott currently lead the goal-kicking for the Roosters with six each after four games.

“Overall, we are just looking to build some solid form going into the bye week then relaunch our season on the other side.”
