Hoppers prepare for Bear hunt

RENNIE coach Ryan Forsyth is unfazed by the prospect of taking on reigning premier Tungamah in Saturday’s opening Picola and District league clash at Rennie.

With the Bears shaping as the south-east league’s boom team, Forsyth said he was looking to seeing how his team stacked up after practice matches against Blighty and The Rock-Yerong Creek.

“It’s something a lot of people have been talking about (Tungamah),” Forsyth said.

“Tungamah has a good side and kept its list together.

“It’s a really good challenge and we won’t be backing away from any challenge that presents itself.”

Rennie is hopeful of attracting a big crowd with the match the only one to be played in the district.

The Bears topped off their recruiting superbly in recent weeks with Mulwala key position player Kyle Archibald committing to the club.
