WALLAROOS coach Peter Waters has declared his side would not lose another game this season.

The Maryborough club fell 36-28 to Hervey Bay Seagulls after a strong start, but Waters said he believed that will be Wallaroos' last loss of the season.

"I think after that (performance) and the mistake rate, I'd be surprised if we lose another game this year,” he said.

"I'd be disappointed if we lose again.”

Wallaroos have won two of their five games so far: a third-round 36-24 win over Maryborough Brothers, and a fourth-round 56-16 thumping of Wests Panthers.

While they performed well in each, Waters' declaration is confirmation of the belief he has in his players.

Not only that, it puts the rest of the Bundaberg Rugby League clubs on notice.

Wallaroos defied expectation in 2016.

A young, predominantly local squad, Wallaroos shocked the competition with flashy footwork, an unorthodox attacking structure and huge amount of heart for a side that noticeably lacked size.

It was the lack of size in the pack and experience that ultimately led to their undoing, but the club hoped the injection of players like barnstorming prop Will Jung would provide the boost they need to push deep into the finals.

Their attack has improved by an average of two points per game when compared to last season, and they concede five points fewer than they did in 2016.

Their first test since Waters' declaration will come against Past Brothers at Eskdale Park on Saturday.
