This is a must: Forsyth

RENNIE coach Ryan Forsyth says Saturday’s crunch clash with Katamatite could be the Hoppers’ biggest game of the season.

With a log-jam of teams fighting for a spot in the finals, Rennie must win on Saturday to keep up with pacesetters Tungamah and Shepparton East.

And with the Hoppers coming up against East next round, Forsyth conceded crunch time had arrived for his club.

“It’s a massive two weeks for us,” Forsyth said.

“We were 0-3 at the start of the year and have worked really hard to get into this position, so we’re really keen to stay in it.

“Obviously we’ve pencilled this game in as one we’re really keen to do well in.

“It’s probably one of our biggest, yeah.”

Katamatite won by 21 points when the sides clashed earlier in the season.

“They dominated the clearances last time, which we need to change,” Forsyth said.

In other games this week, Katandra faces a big test against Shepparton East, while Tungamah should prove too strong for Waaia.
