Bobcats hit the road

By GRANT NEILSON

AFTER comprehensively beating last year's grand final winners last weekend, this week the Maclean Bowling Club Bobcats take on the runners-up Richmond Rovers in the Far North Coast Premier League soccer.

Last weekend was the Bobcats most complete performance of the season and the challenge for them now is to show that they can do that on a consistent basis.

The Maclean team will field an unchanged line up from last week. Kyle Sutton is the only player unavailable and after a fine perfor- mances last weekend Matt Bryant will continue up front, pushing his claims for a full time first team place.

After a string of accomplished performances bolter Cody Wratten will continue at the back as he matures into a genuine first team regular.

Wratten and his fellow defenders will need to be at their best this weekend against the speedy and robust Rovers attack.

The match will feature contrasting styles as the Bobcats look to play their quick passing and possession game, while Rovers like to rush forward.
