No Margan for error as James comes to the rescue of injury-riddled Norths’ outfit

By Jon Geddes

AN SOS call on the eve of the game saw hooker James Margan come to the rescue of Northern Suburbs in their 32-0 win over Souths at North Sydney Oval on Saturday.

Named as a fresh reserve, Margan was contacted at 6.30pm on Friday asking if he would start in the backrow after the team was ravaged by injury.

Margan didn’t hesitate at taking on the assignment, even though he had not played No.7 for over a decade when he was a student at the famous rugby nursery, St Josephs’s College.

Not only did he slot in seamlessly, but Margan was a standout for Norths in a performance highlighted by their impressive defensive effort which kept Souths scoreless.
