One at a time, Berrigan Saints

BERRIGAN coach Ty Russell has told the Saints to only worry about beating Yarroweyah on Saturday after blowing the chance to seal a spot in the finals last round.

Berrigan has another chance to book a finals berth this week after a shock one-point loss to Mathoura last Saturday kept the race for fifth spot alive.

“It’s a very important game,” Russell said.

“That was the plan against Mathoura last week, but it backfired.

“We’ve been crucified by injury, though.

“We’ve still got a few to come back.”

Those returns from injury should start on Saturday.

The Mynard twins — Cam and Jack — are both likely to make their comeback from ankle troubles.

Key forward Ted Walliss (shoulder) is also on the verge of a return as the Saints look to break a five-match losing streak.

Justin Crawford (hamstring) is another still to come back.

“We’re expecting a tough game this week,” Russell said.

“Yarroweyah has the bye next week, so this is their last game for the season.

“You’d expect they’ll have a serious crack.”
