COROWA-Rutherglen veteran Cade Mills believes he has found a way to extend his career — play as a forward.
Mills, who has racked up 198 matches for the Roos, kicked a personal best eight goals playing out of the goal square against North Albury at John Foord Oval on Saturday.
“I loved it,” Mills joked yesterday.
“These forwards have been on to something for years.
“You come off the ground and you could go out and play again.
“You aren’t running around like you do in the midfield.”
Mills couldn’t have timed his goal-kicking heroics better with Corowa-Rutherglen celebrating its 2003 premiership reunion.
Seventeen of the 21 players from the grand final side that beat Wodonga attended including Ryan McKenzie and Matt Mills who flew in from Perth and Brisbane.
“It was one of the best weekends I can remember,” he said.
“The boys had a super day on Saturday and having a good win always helps.”
Mills said the Roos were out to finish the season as well as possible against Wodonga Raiders and Wangaratta in the final two rounds of the season.
“Obviously we haven’t had the best of years so it was good to get a little bit of atmosphere back into the place at the weekend,” he said.
“We have two winnable games coming up so hopefully we can finish the year off well.”
