The Tathra Sea Eagles will take on Cooma in three grades this Sunday. 

Unfortunately, the Tathra club has struggled in the league-tag and first grades, while the reserves have been in the mix and still have a shot at the semi-finals. 

First grade playing-coach Willie McDonald said the club wasn’t concerned who they faced and just wanted to play. 

“We are just looking towards a normal game really,” McDonald said. 

“I’m not too sure how the team is going to be, we may have a couple out.”

McDonald said a couple of injuries were taking their toll on the squad, but expected Cooma to have a few out as well. 

“Cooma is probably in the same way as us coming to the end of the season, but we will be trying to get a win in.”

The playing list wasn’t finalised for the Sea Eagles, with McDonald to make a final call on the playing roster today. 

However, the squad has been showing strong improvement over the past few weeks and McDonald said the club is getting closer to a win. 

“But we will still be looking to improve on a few more little things,” he said. 

Aspirations of making the finals are looking less likely for the senior squad, but a win over Cooma will keep them in contention. 

“It has been a bit disappointing - the team hasn’t got the results we were after.”

McDonald said the squad is young and more experience will pay dividends for the team, but he was disappointed after a “rough” season had left the squad winless. 

“It is a pretty young team [and] they have been improving, but it is a little disappointing.” 

The club will play host to the Stallions in three grades, with games to start from noon at the Tathra Beach Country Club ground. 

McDonald expects there will be the regular crowd at the ground to support the team.
