Reserves only team to play at chook pen this Saturday

The Roosters Reserve Men's side will be the only team on the park this weekend with the Women's and Black Diamond Plate sides having a bye.

It's been three weeks since the Roosters have been at home and the side is pleased to be back at the "chook pen".

And, publicity officer Richard Wilkes says there is plenty of unknowns about this weekend’s game. 

Like ours, the Warners Bay Reserve side is the only men's division competing on Saturday so stacking the side with higher graded players is highly likely - and this can't be underestimated by the Roosters.

The Roosters have been warming up for a win. 

Their previous games have showed good patches of football. They have held out and matched top sides during their games. It's been small 5 minute lapses that the Roosters have had consecutive goals kicked against them. These making the margin out of reach.

A full 80 minutes is what coach Nathan Smith, "Patchy" will be working on. He is confident the team will match whatever Warners Bay throw at them.

He believes being at home is a strong advantage for his team.

Up forward Peter Kolatchew will be the man to add points on the board for the Roosters. He had a good day last week kicking 3 goals. Dylan "The Bull" Hixon is back after his week in Black Diamond Plate. He will be looking at add more goals to his season total and get the Roosters over the line.

Captain Matthew Tull and Josh Long will continue to lead the side. They will put their bodies on the line around the ruck and hold the zone across the centre.

Club veteran Donald Hornby Waring will most likely be put down back to use his experience to shut down any attack by Warners Bay. Leo Hicks Wolff will be down their will him. Leo has been in the best performing players three times this season and again you know he will present his best here.

Game time: 12pm, Rose Point Park - Home of the Roosters, canteen and bar open
