Coach sidelines Bulls ‘bad' boys
THE Bundaberg Bulls will be without the services of Nello Giordano and Todd Meyerding in tomorrow’s clash against Northside Wizards.
The pair has been given marching orders from new coach Danny Page for what the Bundaberg QBL committee has cited as disciplinary reasons.
A spokesperson for the committee said Page had been forced to make the decision by the players’ actions.
“It is unfortunate that their actions and lack there of, have forced head coach Danny Page to be reactive to these players’ decisions,” the spokesperson said.
Page Senior was not available for comment yesterday but Bundaberg Bears coach Dean Page said the men’s team was eager to get back to the job at hand.
“The men are looking forward to finishing the season on a positive note,” he said.
“Pride is on the line and they’ll be fighting to turn their season around.”
The Bears will fight to maintain an eight-game winning streak in their match against Northside Wizards.
The Bears sit comfortably at the top of the central division pool but face a stiff challenge from the second-placed metropolitan team.
Page said spectators could be assured of a close tussle.
“I think it’s going to be an interesting game,” he said.
“They certainly brought it to us the last time we played them.”
The Bundaberg Bears will play the Wizards noon tomorrow at WIN Stadium.
The men’s match will be played at 2pm.
