Swans fly higher than Saints to be first into AFL decider

IT'S BACK to the drawing board for Sawtell-Toormina after going down to Coffs Swans by 28 points in the AFL North Coast major semi final.

The Saints now face off next Saturday at C.ex Coffs International Stadium with defending premiers Port Macquarie for one last chance to secure a berth in the grand final.

Their reserve grade made it through by beating the Magpies but dreams of three teams engaged in the big dance are fading after the under-18s also went down by a big space to the 'Pies.
