Saints doing it tough

BERRIGAN will limp into Saturday’s grudge match with Blighty.

The Saints, who drew with Picola United last Saturday, have been ravaged by injury.

The Saints will be without Jack and Cam Mynard (ankles), Craig Thornton (general soreness), full-back Grant Martin (hamstring) on Saturday and centre-half-forward Ted Walliss (shoulder) will miss a month.

Justin Crawford is also iffy with hamstring troubles.

“We’re a bit battered and bruised at the moment,” Berrigan coach Ty Russell said.

“It’s a bit of a grudge match for the club this week but the injuries are piling up.”

Russell said the Saints needed to lift after limping to the line against United with a last quarter flurry last weekend.

“We didn’t deserve a draw,” he said.

“We played terribly.

“We shouldn’t have been in the game and in the end we were probably unlucky not to win, if that makes sense.

“We kicked 4.5 in the last quarter and missed some easy ones.”
