TATHRA’S Sea Eagles Aussie rules first grade squad is ready to swoop tomorrow.
Senior coach Luke Taylor said he was happy to be playing on the Eagles’ home ground at Lawrence Park, Tathra.
“We’ve always played pretty well at home,” Taylor said.
“Overall I’m not too concerned about the result, but we want to go and put a good show on.
“We unveil our premiership flag this week with our first home game as well,” he said.
Taylor is expecting fierce competition from the Pambula Panthers.
“The Panthers had a fairly good pre-season by the looks of it.
“Our numbers are pretty slim so it will be a week to week prospect for us,” he said.
“We’ll keep concentrating on getting a team on the park.”
Taylor said he would be looking to his experienced players to get results in tomorrow’s match.
“The keys are always the experienced players, Deano, Ryan and Mitch O’Loghlin.
“They’re the guys we rely on to stand up in big games.
“We want to definitely put a good show up,” he said.
Meanwhile, Taylor said the club is also looking at utilising some of its younger players.
“We’re trying to blood a few young blokes.
“And get enough games into them, so if we run into injuries later in the year we can rely on those guys like we have in the past.”
This year’s competition is looking more balanced, Taylor said.
“I think this year will be more even, it will be a four or five side race.
“It’s good to see the other clubs have recruited a bit.
“It will be better for spectators and supporters as well,” he said.
Taylor is urging everyone to head along and support their team tomorrow and to watch the unveiling of the premiership flag.
“We’re happy to be back playing at home and unveiling our flag is a big moment for us.
We’d like everyone to come down and support us.
“Hopefully we can come away with a win for them,” he said.
