Redbacks warned of dangers
WARWICK Credit Union Redbacks coach Jason Wright has warned his players that overconfidence could be dangerous.
"A very good start to this season can be brought undone by thinking for one minute that we are in for an easy day at the office," Wright told the squad.
With a fit squad of 27 the selection committee will make a decision on the final team structure this morning.
"Playing against Lockyer Valley has in the past been a relatively comfortable victory, but we have the home ground advantage and the crowd behind us, don't mess up because of overconfidence," Wright said.
The LV Lions are a much-improved combination and put a scare into Goondiwindi last week, they are a taller and faster side than previous seasons.
WCU Redbacks will be without the dynamic trio Kurt Millard, Clint McErvale and Brendan Iles.
Andrew Politch and Gavin O'Leary are also missing in defence, and key big man Alex Cutmore must pass a strenuous fitness test this morning before getting the all-clear from both the medics and the selection committee.
Returning to the squad will be Tony Chandler and Sheldon Livingstone with Mackay recruit Ryan Ramsamy playing his first game for the Reddies.
Ramsamy will be out to prove a point in order to gain regular selection and will be worth watching.
Tim Tate, Matt Stone and Mark Borgert have slotted into the team very well and look dangerous when around the ball.
The WCU Redbacks need the win to remain in second place and undefeated, and that is going to be Wright's message before they take the field today.
Today's feast of football begins at 8.40am, with U/10s followed by U/12s, U/14s and the U/16s will play the curtain-raiser to the seniors.
Not to be outdone by any of these games today, the Reddies Ladies team will play a round robin series against Lockyer Valley and South Toowoomba starting at 12.30pm at Reddies oval tomorrow.
Don't miss the ladies in action. They are out there to have fun and you will enjoy watching them.
