Crushers ride on a wave of momentum
ISIS Crushers approach their big home games this weekend on the back of one of their best performances this season.
Isis crushed Waves Falcons 17-0 in their encounter last week, but will face a white-hot Turtles outfit celebrating a 12-7 win over rivals Barbarians.
The Crushers’ domination of the set plays provided the side an advantage over their adversaries, as they worked the Falcons across the field in an attempt to find an opportunity.
The injection of the Crushers’ Tongan imports into the tight five proved a game changer for the good guys, and the extra power and precision helped assert Isis’ dominance.
Their proven ability to repeatedly bend the Falcons’ defensive line allowed the Isis forwards to take full control, and it was of no surprise that all three tries came via the engine room.
If anything made the players and coaching staff happy it was their defensive effort, which did not allow any points.
The action will start at 4pm as the over-35 Isis Sugar Daddies go head-to-head with the Bundaberg Rum Ruckers.
Falcons and Barbarians will face off at 5pm with the main game scheduled to kick off at 6.30pm at Childers Showground.
