The Mal Meninga squad has been amassing some large wins so far this season averaging just over 46 points per game and looking very dominant. Coach Dick Walsh is pleased with his team’s progress and attitude, “Coming into the second half of our home and away fixtures I’m very happy with where the squad is at regarding our on field structures and our team culture. There is obvious room for improvement and given the nature and attitude of our playing group i believe we will go along way to achieving goals set prior to the season commencement”.
The Cyril Connell side have had to fight a little harder but have still managed to win all their matches in 2016. Cyril Connell Coach Allan Petersen said his side will be preparing as normal this week, “We will be looking to do the little things right this week and come game day we will be making sure we are completing our sets.”
