Wattles have all eyes on the ball

THE boys from the Wattle Warriors A-grade team know exactly what it will take to beat Souths when they go head-to-head tomorrow afternoon at Platz Oval.

Wattles Warriors Senior Rugby League Club president Barry Glass said despite an injury-riddled pre-season the team was on track for the weekend.

"The boys are improving and we have players back from injury," Glass said.

"Their preparation has been good this week, with almost full numbers at training, and everyone is set to be at the game."

Player Lauchlan Hoey said the side's fortunes were about to change.

"This week we have four players back from injury and it feels like we have improved since last week," Hoey said.

"We are also starting to come together and work well as a team with a few new players stepping up and having to get used to A-grade.

"We are confident that things are definitely leading us towards a win."

Teammate Jordan Henry agreed with Hoey and said the boys were ready for the game.

"We are now seeing glimpses of a team that can match it with any team in the competition," Henry said.
