Falcons' defence will be tested

THE Waves Falcons will hope they can fix their defensive frailties quickly as they come up against Isis Crushers tomorrow night at The Waves sportsground.

Falcons president Travis Smith said after copping a 51-3 flogging from the Pythons last week the team would look to play simple, smart and fast rugby.

"We can't be too fancy," he said.

The Crushers are also coming off a loss to Turtles and will be hungry to post a win given their impressive form last week despite the loss.

The Waves will be without fly-half Clayton Donovan who has a shoulder injury, and Ash Emerick who suffered from a concussion and will be off for three weeks.

Falcons winger Nathan Macdonald fractured his leg and will also be unavailable.

"We have a lot of backs and they will be ready to step up," Smith said.

The game starts at 8pm.
