Koalas work off special team bond

A SPECIAL bond developed by South Tweed Koalas has enabled them to achieve things beyond what they had imagined and their inspiration perspective may lead them to triumph over Ormeau Shearers tomorrow afternoon at Dave Burns Field.

Their core value of not setting goals until round 10 has proven to be an effective tool in the Bycroft Cup competition as they reside in fifth position.

Coach Dean Allen said their objective had paid dividends for them and they are making a strong dash to the finals.

“This is our first year back in the top grade and we are conscious that it is a long road ahead of us,” he said.

“Beating Tugun was great for us and if we can topple the top teams, hopefully we can stay in the top five.”

Elsewhere, Bilambil Jets have showed few can match their immense qualities and still remain at “high altitude” on top of the table.

Coach Troy McCarthy said in order to win they would have to be mentally fit and work together. “They can be quick and we will have to shift defensively with them but importantly we will have to work in unison,” he said.

Both games start at 3pm.
