Bears wary of Eagles

TUNGAMAH coach Nick Doyle has put the unbeaten Bears on notice ahead of Saturday’s trip to Shepparton.

Doyle reminded them they lost the same game last year in similar circumstances.

Tungamah crushed premiership rival Rennie by 87 points last weekend and enters Saturday’s blockbuster against second-placed Shepparton East unbeaten from its opening 10 games.

But Doyle was quick to point out that meant little this week.

“We were in the same position last year and got rolled,” Doyle said.

“We don’t look back on the past too much, but it has been mentioned.

“We need to make sure we’re at our best every week, no matter who we are against.

“East is hard to beat at home at the best of times.

“It’s the hardest road trip in the league.”

The Bears are likely to go in unchanged.

Rennie hosts Katunga in a crucial game for the Kats’ finals hopes, while Waaia travels to Katamatite to take on the Tigers.
