Drovers ready for CSU

Deni Drovers will look to make it three wins on the trot when they host CSU at Rotary Park tomorrow.

The inexperienced Drovers side has found their groove in recent weeks, coming off a 33-point win over Wagga Waratahs in a grand final rematch last weekend.

Drovers coach Joe Gogarty said last week’s win was ‘‘a turning point’’ for his side.

‘‘There was a bit of a buzz around the field when we started to get on top last week,’’ he said.

‘‘It all of a sudden clicked a bit, with the new players realising their role in the side.

‘‘To come up against quality opposition and win the way we did was very impressive.

‘‘We’re getting good game time into everyone and more blokes are taking on a senior role.

‘‘The key is that they all want to play for each other.’’

The Drovers will go into the clash relatively unchanged, with Mikah Richardson set to come back into the side tomorrow.

Gogarty said he will most likely go in with the same run-on side for the clash.

‘‘Since our loss to Wagga Ag we’ve had a few players come back into the side and we’ve settled a bit,’’ he said.

‘‘Tjunda Keefe is starting to find some good form and Erasmus Bothma has been impressive for the majority of the season.

‘‘Everyone is starting to get to a good level of fitness and it’s showing with our improvement on the field.

‘‘I don’t quite know what to expect with CSU. They generally have always had a tight forward line but it’s tough to know what we’ll be coming up against.

‘‘If we can defend as well as we did last week then that will put us in a good position.’’

Tomorrow’s clash will kick-off at 2.30pm.
