Colts - Gordon Trial Preview
What we are looking to get out of the trial? We need too build on last weeks trial especially in defence, keep working on line speed, line speed and more line speed from kick off to full-time. Good communication and plenty of physicality or you are not in the game. A lot of effort in training has been working on our defence pattern and it will be interesting to see how our structure holds up against some good attack especially when fatigued. The secret of playing in trials is to just play your position and not somebody else’s. We don't want tight 5 standing in the centres or outside backs trying to be 1st receiver or everyone playing back waiting for a kick to return. Just play your bit in the team jigsaw and you will play well.
Lastly i would like to give a big Rebel Yell to the Colts players who moved up to grade this season and are having there first game with the big boys. This group are an exceptional group of men who will bring a lot of excitement and commitment to the Grade group and they have been training extremely hard the past 4 months to be ready for there opportunity to play grade and i like to think being in the Southern Districts Colts program has given then the encouragement, attitude and skills and work ethic to make there mark.
