WAGGA RSL captain-coach Sam Perry urged his first six to assert themselves and support their abilities against South Wagga at Robertson Oval on Saturday. The loss of the first wickets and the rain played a big part in the first-round loss to the Cats, who are seen as one of the biggest hurdles in the Blues’ quest for back-to-back premier. “The Cats in the first round and South Wagga now, there’s no better way to try and challenge us,” said Perry. “We worked really hard in the preseason and we probably ran up against the top two teams in the competition (that’s a big test). If you can write down a few points it’s great, but after that we will now have to do to get to their level. Perry wants his batsmen to take the game as they look to make a statement against the benchmark of the competition. IN OTHER NEWS “We have a strong hitting order. Some of the other boys have to put a little weight on their shoulders and take it upon themselves to try to carry us through the season, “he said.” They’re all really good cricketers, but maybe be that we lack confidence in knowing that we haven’t scored any points lately. I don’t know if we are putting pressure on ourselves, but we are sinking into our shells and not wanting to go out. Instead of trying not to go out, we should be trying to score points. “We were exceptional with the ball, I think that’s something we can build on.” Opening pitcher Ben Willis and Charlie Cull return to the Bulldogs roster after missing the first round with Hayden Cooke and Blake Brynes retiring. The Blues will field the same team that beat Kooringal in the first round. Our reporters work hard to provide local and up-to-date news to the community.
