Coach after a six-star repeat
FOOTBALL: Possession kings Frenchville will take their successful outdoor formula into the weekends six a side tournament at Ryan Park.
While they can't top last years unprecedented success, matching it is the main aim. The Wesley Hall Cup holders took out the mens and womens final in 2016.
Coach Justin Kilshaw is only in it to win it but is realistic about his side's chances.
"It has been a slow start to the year for us, we are about three or four weeks behind where we want to be," Kilshaw said.
"We are looking forward to it and in it to win it but at the end of the day it is a pre-season comp. It is a good chance to get minutes in the legs but that's all.
"Last year was an exceptional year but we have lost a few trimmings of the squad so it will be a real challenge. A good opportunity for new guys to step in."
Kilshaw said the rigorous comp took a toll and no players with niggles would be risked.
"Six a side is a tough competition to play in physically, the players are underdone to start with," he said.
"With three or five games during the day you warm up, warm down, warm up, warm down in the heat meaning the potential for injury is quite high.
"We obviously still try and play possession, that is where we produce our best football.
"Tactics wise, we really just try and make sure we have numbers back defensively and then burst forward.
"But you have to control possession, if you're turning the ball over you are chasing too much. That is the most important part."
