The Deniliquin Drovers are searching for their fourth win from five outings when they make the long trip to Temora tomorrow.July 11, 2014 4:05am
Deniliquin Drovers make their second trip to Temora in under two months for round 13 of the Southern Inland Rugby Union tomorrow.
The 340km trek sees the two form teams of the Ramano’s Cup second grade competition go head-to-head.
The Drovers have won three of their last four matches and are coming off a huge 53-0 victory over the higher-placed Wagga City.
The fourth-placed Tuskers, who beat Leeton 34-7 last week, will be looking to close the gap on the table between Deni and themselves.
‘‘Last time we went up there Temora got off to a really good start. We nearly caught them, but we can’t let them get a start like that again,’’ Drovers coach Warwick Strong said.
‘‘They are a real tough, physical side and will plan to make it hard for us early and run it out wide.’’
The Drovers could only muster the bare 15 players for their last trip to Temora, when they were beaten 24-15.
Despite being down 17-3 at half-time, the Drovers hammered the Temora defensive line late in the game to just come up short.
‘‘I’m hoping for a better turnout this time round,’’ Strong said.
‘‘I told our guys after the win last week that we need more players to make the trip to Temora because every game is on the line now.’’
Dan Hallman, second-rower Hayden Roach and captain Nathan Holahan are all in line to return for tomorrow’s clash.
