Northern United v Mullumbimby Giants at Crozier Field, Lismore, on Sunday is the highlight match of Round 9 of Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League (NRRRL).

Northern United share the lead with Lower Clarence on 14 points, with Mullumbimby two points behind in equal third place.

The match looms as a contest between Northern United’s attacking flair against Mullumbimby’s well-drilled defence.

The Giants are a solid attacking force too, as evidenced by last weekend’s 52-4 thrashing of Grafton Rhinos.
