Barbarians prepare to fight on

WHILE half the teams in the Far North Coast rugby union competition will enjoy a break this weekend, the Coolangatta Tweed Heads Barbarians will be heading to Lennox Head to play the home side in a catch-up match this evening.

The game has been rescheduled from round two of the competition which was postponed due to rain on Goodwin Park.

This evening, the main focus for the Tweed side will be getting a bonus point victory for the Seconds who are still in the hunt for a semi-finals berth.

The Firsts are languishing towards the bottom of the ladder - a disappointing result for a season which held so much promise.

Coach Mark Iannelli said interest in the Firsts had slumped despite there being a good contingent of players.

“The Seconds need bonus point wins, but there is still a chance we can get into the finals and that's our focus at this stage,” Iannelli said.

The Seconds match kicks off at 4.30pm and the Firsts at 6.15pm.

In the other catch-up match, Grafton hosts Southern Cross.
