Pan­thers meet and greet

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham Pan­thers will host a meet-and-greet bar­be­cue at the Wool­worths car park in Hor­sham at 9am on Satur­day as they en­joy their first bye of the NRL SA Lime­stone Coast sea­son.

Hor­sham play­ers and of­fi­cials will at­tend the sausage siz­zle and coach Rob Gas­coyne urged any­one who was cu­ri­ous about play­ing or sup­port­ing rugby league to come along.

“The boys will all be there,” he said.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for us to meet the com­mu­nity, and for any­one who is in­ter­ested in play­ing or be­com­ing a mem­ber, we’d love to have them come see us.”

The Pan­thers are com­ing off a 32-16 de­feat to the Gun­ditj­mara Bulls on Sun­day in their first home game of the sea­son at Hor­sham Rac­ing Cen­tre.

Hor­sham never re­cov­ered from a slow start, but Gas­coyne said there were pos­i­tives to take from the match.

“We weren’t switched on in the first half and I gave the boys a bit of a rev in the half-time hud­dle,” he said.

“We scored three tries to one in the se­cond half, so a pos­i­tive was that we didn’t lose our faith. That’s the cul­ture we want to have at the club – if we’re down, we keep bring­ing it.”

Gas­coyne said the Pan­thers would lose An­thony But­tigieg for the re­main­der of the sea­son af­ter a se­ri­ous knee in­jury, but would re­gain cap­tain Jay­den Gas­coyne af­ter the bye.

He said any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing the team could at­tend train­ing ses­sions at Hor­sham Rac­ing Cen­tre on Tues­days and Thurs­days at 5.30pm.
