Redbacks keen to taste victory
WHILE the Warwick Redbacks clubhouse is not quite ready, senior coach Jason Wright said the players and field were in prime condition for the first home game of the 2013 season against Dalby this afternoon.
"We'll be putting up our tent city again (today)," Wright said.
"We are hoping the clubhouse will be ready for the Anzac day game.
"The fields have recovered well too.
"The team is coming off a win last weekend and we really had to fight for it."
However the winning combination from last weekend needed some fine-tuning - something the selectors found difficult.
Coming into the side is Thye Clarkson, Clint McErvale, Sheldon Livingstone, and the Politch brothers.
Considering the youth and experience factors in the Dalby Swans line-up and the fact that they are on a high from a crushing victory over new guns Chinchilla last Saturday, Wright knows it will not be an easy win.
"Dalby has a good team," said Wright.
"It will be a tough encounter: They are a never-give-up side and will keep playing until the game is done and dusted."
Newly appointed Redbacks vice-captain Alex Cutmore has started his season where he left off with his pre-season. His contribution at Highfields last weekend was amazing.
Newcomer Livingstone is an unknown quantity but, if his training form is any indicator, he will be a real asset.
All age groups will play this weekend starting with the U8-10s kicking the dew off the grass at 8.40am, followed by U12s, U14s and U16s as the curtain raiser.
