AFTER a poor showing in the second half against TLU last weekend, Darlington Point Coleambally are looking to play the full 80 minutes when they return home to take on West Wyalong.
The Roosters held a 24-0 lead midway through the first half only to be chased down by a determined Sharks side.
“We have been lucky to get out of jail in the last couple of weeks,” DPC coach Ryan McGoldrick said.
“We got lucky and against the Greens and came away with a one-point win over Waratahs, so this loss had been coming for a couple of weeks now.
“We were pretty flat in the second half maybe we thought we had it won but full credit to them (TLU) they did to us in the second half what we did to them in the first.”
The task at hand doesn’t get any easier for the Roosters as they prepare to take on the Mallee Men.
“I have been out here for four years now and they have had a pretty strong team throughout,” he said.
“They are probably the most professional team in the competition.
“I think what they do better than anyone else in the competition is play as a team.”
Heading into the game, McGoldrick joked his players should be nice and fresh having not made many tackles in the second half against TLU and they will also welcome back Sam Bartter who was unavailable last weekend.
The sides will do battle at Coleambally Sportsground with first grade getting underway at around 3pm on Sunday.
