Wattles president confident
WATTLES president Aaron Scheid predicts his side will beat Warwick in the Barrett Shield game at Father Ranger Oval on Saturday.
Scheid said Barrett Shield games were always tough and close.
"We rate this game as important as a fixture game," Scheid said.
"It means a lot to everyone, it is prestigious to win.
"We lost the Barrett Shield at Clifton last year and want to win it back."
Scheid said everyone had to put in across the park for his winning prediction to come true. "I believe we are really strong across the team, there is no weakness in our 17-man team."
The Wattles side includes the four Manley brothers, Pat, Dan and Xavier in A-grade, and Will in the halves in reserve-grade.
Both Warwick and Wattles have had one game this season, Warwick going down to Brisbane second-division grand finalists Aspley and Wattles beating Ipswich premiers Fassifern.
TIMES: 3.30pm U18, 5pm Reserve grade, 6.30pm A-grade.
