The Perth Spirit showed plenty of their nickname in their hard fought loss to Brisbane City last Thursday night. In the second half, their pack was able to match Brisbane’s across the park and actually best them in the scrum with Heath Tessman putting in a blinder. Also leading the way was scrumhalf Ian Prior who was a constant danger to the City defence. Kyle Godwin’s return should provide some much needed punch to the backline, and hopefully free up the flyers on the wing.
The Rays had an unhappy day against the Sydney Stars, and have now lost both their NRC games against their Sydney neighbours. A strong start against Sydney provided some hope of success, but they couldn’t stop the Sydney tide once it began to build momentum. David Feltscheer has buggered his hand and will miss the rest of the NRC season in a real bloy to the Rays. It may mean we see boom back Reece Hodge make his first appearance for the year from the back.
Key match ups: Kyle Godwin has been champing at the bit to get back on the rugby field for some time, and will match up to GAGR Team of Week 1 centre, Tom Hill. Hill proved a handful for the Stars defence last week and will ensure Godwin doesn’t get it all his own way on Saturday. As much as we love seeing youngsters running around, experience is golden in these types of tournaments, and we may well see a couple of experienced locks facing off this weekend. The Tree, Cam Treloar, played for the Eagles last year, but has moved back to the Rays in 2015 and provides a wealth of experience to a young side. Rory Walton can’t really be called a veteran as yet, but he’s the hard head of the Spirit and really ripped in last week and was a strong presence his Spirit side.
