Rams ready despite setback

September 08, 2017

The stage is set for an absolute thriller in the Murray League, with the Deni Rams’ fourths going head to head with Echuca United in a semi final match at Numurkah on Sunday.

The last time these sides met, it was the Eagles with two late goals who pinched a one point win.

Unfortunately for the Deni side, they’ve been struck badly with the flu, forcing the side to miss Tuesday night’s training session.

Coach Brendan Willoughby said his side will make up for the missed training with a session tomorrow.

‘‘We’ll have a light run on Saturday to keep the legs fresh,’’ he said.

‘‘Right now it’s a bit of an unknown as to who is available to play.

‘‘Four or five of our players have been crook and haven’t been able to go to school.

‘‘Some other players will need to step up if the sick kids don’t get up for Sunday. We’ll give it our best either way.’’

Some key players for the Rams are captain Cooper Willoughby in the middle of the ground, ruckman Brad Poka and key defender Kane Hall.
