Ga­tors aim to put bite on Sharks

Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

MA­REEBA have taken away some harsh lessons from round 1 of the Cairns & Dis­trict Rugby League com­pe­ti­tion but feel closer to putting it all to­gether as they seek re­venge against Moss­man Port Dou­glas this week­end.

A-Grade lost at home to Kan­ga­roos last Saturday 26-12.

How­ever, Glad­i­a­tors coach Matt Wake­field said they are pre­pared for to­mor­row’s game.

“It was dis­ap­point­ing not to get the win,” he said.

“We will take a few pos­i­tives out of the game. I think we have a lot to work on.

“I think we just need sim­plify our attack a bit more.

“We got into train­ing this week and have worked on sim­pli­fy­ing our game plan.

“Hope­fully we can get the win to­mor­row.”

Wake­field said clean ex­e­cu­tion was the key to re­vers­ing the Ga­tors’ pre-sea­son loss to the Sharks.

“I have a game plan on how we will play and hope­fully the boys can take it out onto the field and bring home a win,” he said.

This week­end’s match will be played at Moss­man Show­grounds fol­lowed by an­other home game next week­end.

The Ma­reeba Glad­i­a­tors Colts won their match against the Roos 36 - 12 while re­serve grade sit on top of the CDRL lad­der af­ter record­ing an em­phatic 74-10 win.
