Bushies want another win on board before break

THE Murray Bushrangers will be out to rebound from last weekend’s disappointing performance when they take on the North Ballarat Rebels at Bendigo’s Queen Elizabeth Oval tomorrow.

Following a disappointing performance against Gippsland Power, coach Darren Ogier has called for a lift across the ground.

“We definitely need to improve all over the ground this week to give ourselves every chance of heading into next week’s Easter break with a 2–1 record,” Ogier said.

“We will need to ensure our pressure is up across the ground and that we are strong at the contest to capitalise on the work on our inform ruckmen.”

The Bushrangers will welcome back Allister Clarke and Wil Carlile and are hoping Josh Schache and Mitch Mahady can continue to play well in attack.

Henty’s Isaac Muller has been leading the way in the ruck while first-year players Shaun Mannagh, Murray Waite and Jake Marshall also shape as key contributors.
