Bulls pumped for Griffith challenge


 THE stage is set for a cracker of a match when the Tumut Bulls take on Griffith in Griffith tomorrow. 

Griffith are coming of an impressive 19-12 win over Wagga Aggies, and Tumut are coming off a creditable 13-9 loss to Waratahs.

Bulls flanker Lewis Simister and his team mates are well aware of the challenge ahead, but he knows his side will take confidence from last Saturday’s near miss into the match. 

“Griffith have always been a big physical side, big forward pack and a quick back line so Saturday’s game will be a real test for us,” he said.

“They won’t make it easy for us but neither will we for them. Our main focus for going into this game is our structure, keeping a pod system working efficiently and effectively as we know we can. The mood at training so far has been good, we’ve analysed what we need to work on from the game against Tahs and we’re confident we can achieve what we’ve set out to do.”

The road trip to Griffith is no hop, skip and jump, but Tumut aren’t going to let that bother them

“Travelling long distances to play is something every team has to do therefore we can’t use that as an excuse but one thing is for certain, we are ready for the challenge and we are looking forward to meeting a physical Griffith side head on and kicking down the front door,” he said.

“We have picked one or two injuries from last week however, it’s a long season and injuries are to be expected so as the saying goes, improvise, adapt and overcome but we are more ready to battle.”

Tumut second grade coach Aidan Thomas is also aware of his team’s challenge tomorrow, but he and his players are determined to meet it.

“It’s always a struggle filling a side when we have to travel so far,” he said.

“I’m confident we’ll get enough players to put in a solid performance.”
