Isis aims to end games at home on a high

UNION: Knowing their minor premiership hopes are almost gone the Isis Crushers are planning on delivering the next best thing to the Childers community.

Tonight they will face The Waves Falcons in their final match at home this season, aiming for one more win in front of their fans.

And they hope a win against the winless Falcons can be the start of their run towards Spring Cup glory.

Currently the in-form side in the competition, they know four more wins will hand them the title.

Isis team manager Darren Golchert said the focus was on The Waves to get the run to the finals going.

"We've been focusing on fitness all week to get the edge when it comes to the finals,” he said.

"We're not taking the game lightly.”

Golchert said that was validated after last week.

"They played well against the Turtles and are getting better and better,” he said.

"We have to be wary against them.”

Strong in the scrum recently the side feels that will be the key to the clash.

"Our scrums last Friday were almost perfect against the Barbarians,” Golchert said.

"Our forwards have done well and we hope that continues.”

For The Waves they will be hoping to put in a good performance in preparations for next week's Travis Herschell Shield match against the Barbarians.

They are also hoping to win to end a two-year drought.

The Waves Falcons sand Isis will face each other at 6.30pm at the Isis Showgrounds.

Following the match the club will have a function at Hotel Childers where they will hand out the player of the match for the game against The Waves.

Everyone is welcome to attend as the club celebrates after the final home match of the year.
