RIVERINA under-23 coach Josh Cale is bracing for a tough clash against Monaro in their Country Championships match at West Wyalong on Saturday.

With David Cowhan and Aaron Slater under injury clouds, Cale said his team would have to play at its best to stay alive.

“Monaro played well at the weekend and will be tough, but I have a lot of faith in our boys,” Cale said.

“It’s a great challenge for the boys.”
