Crocs take bye se­ri­ously

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Port Dou­glas Crocs have en­joyed a week­end of re­lax­ation and fun with a bye, but are once again train­ing hard this week in prepa­ra­tion of their match-up against the Ma­nunda Hawks on Satur­day.

The last time the two teams met, the Crocs man­aged a 104-point vic­tory, leav­ing no doubts the Hawks will be out for re­venge this week­end.

The Crocs’ fit­ness lev­els have been high this year which coach Brad Cooper at­tributes to the light­ing sys­tem and the boys plan to keep it this way, work­ing hard at train­ing.

‘‘They had a good week­end off, but got straight back into some solid train­ing,’’ Mr Cooper said.

‘‘They have been work­ing on all as­pects of the game - a lot of de­fence, of­fence and stop­pages train­ing.’’

The Crocs had some debu­tantes in their side when they last played and will wel­come four or five of them back again this week.

‘‘Ev­ery­one is wel­come to come down and have a look at the next gen­er­a­tion of lo­cal play­ers com­ing through,’’ Cooper said. ‘‘The boys are show­ing alot of prom­ise. ‘‘We are go­ing into the game con­fi­dent but re­alise we could have a tough bat­tle on our hands as the Hawks have some re­ally tal­ented play­ers in their side now.’’

The teams will face off at the Crocpit at 3pm on Satur­day. The Crocs will have a bye the fol­low­ing week­end.
