There’s one massive motivator for CSU Bathurst when they host Dubbo Kangaroos this weekend – causing a major upset in front of a bumper Old Boys Day crowd.
“It’s the biggest weekend of the year. Every player that has ever played will be coming,” CSU coach Scott Hatch enthused.
“We’re expecting a massive crowd to support the boys.
“Training has been top notch. Everyone is keen to pull the jersey on this week.”
The students have been plagued by injuries all season but will look to play an almost full-strength side against Roos.
“It’s the first week where we’re almost playing a full-strength squad. We’re at about 95 per cent,” Hatch said.
“We’ll be looking to put some of the stuff we’ve been working on into place.
“We’ve been working on our attack by offering more options. The ownership needs to be on each other and working together to offer more options.
“Our defence has been improving, as a unit, even though the scorelines haven’t suggested that.”
The Mitchell Men will be looking for revenge against Roos, after being demolished 96-17 at No. 1 Oval in May.
Kick-off is at 3.15pm.
