Gentlemen ready to get hands dirty
THE Gentlemen of Murwillumbah Rugby Union Club’s potential will be explored when they take on Yamba this afternoon at Stan Sercombe Oval.
Since their reappearance this year in the Far North Rugby Union Village competition, the Gentlemen have had one win and four losses.
Conversely, Yamba have won every round, a result that could make the Gentlemen’s players feel a little uneasy.
Head coach Peter Crittle said today’s match against Yamba would be tough, as they boasted a lot of strength.
“They are the top team in the competition and they have had very strong wins this year,” he said.
“Last week they beat Bangalow 55-0 and they are very good, just like last year when they were premiers.”
After their match with Evans River last weekend, the Gentlemen are fighting fit, according to Crittle. “We came through relatively unscathed and we are ready for the game,” he said.
The Gentlemen need to improve a few areas of their game, as there have been a few lapses in recent matches, Crittle said.
All the action starts at 2.20pm.
In other encounters this round, Byron play Iluka, Kyogle face Mullumbimby and Bangalow clash with Evans River.
