HENTY coach Matt Klemke believes youthful exuberance has been instrumental in the Swampies’ solid form.
While the club’s recruits have slotted in nicely, Anthony Pope, Tyson Muller, Nick Murray, Andrew Yates, Nat Williams, Mason Gilfillan and Taylor Clark played in Henty’s under-17 premiership last season and have grabbed their opportunities.
Jonathan Male is also proving dangerous after spending last season with Lavington’s under-16s.
“The young blokes have done well,” Klemke said.
“They give you pace and forward pressure which is always handy.”
Klemke is expecting Murray Magpies to provide a fierce test at Henty on Saturday.
The Magpies were trounced by Holbrook last weekend and another loss could prove disastrous.
Culcairn host Jindera, Lockhart will battle against Osborne, Rand-Walbundrie-Walla meet Howlong and CDHBU will defeat the Crows.
