Chris Yates has named round 14 team for this week.
We caught up with Chris Yates and asked about last week’s win over Blacktown Workers and this Sunday’s upcoming game against the Asquith Magpies at Storey Park …
What are your thoughts about the game last weekend?
A 26-24 win, our first half was probably our worst all year, 53% completions we couldn't get anything started and with 10sec left before halftime Walter V produced a great effort for us to score and go in 14-6 down. We started the 2nd half great scoring from our first set, Blacktown came back at us hard and with 20mins to go we were down 24-12 . Our last 20mins was our best and that was done with 12 men after Nathan smith was sin binned twice. To the boys credit they found a way to win.
Who were your standouts from last week?
Nick Kassis and big Buggo were great off the bench. Nick Walker in his first game for us was pretty good
Who was the ‘Players Player’?
Who was the Player of the Week selected by the Coaching Staff (Coaches Award)?

Asquith are a good team led by their No7 Aaron Groom , he has plenty of experience and a good kicking game
