Waves Tigers set to break losing streak
AFTER a two-week rest with Easter and a bye, Waves Tigers will be out to break its four-match losing streak in the Bundaberg Rugby League.
Coach Russell Thomas said star recruit - former NRL player Anthony Watts - had been cleared to play against Brothers tonight.
"He has trained well," he said.
"We are fine-tuning a few young players as well as Watts.
"We have our under-18s starting this week which is great for the club."
Thomas said Brothers were always a formidable opponent.
"Brothers are a very big and strong side and are clinical about their work," he said.
"We are just hoping we can match them for the full 80 minutes.
"At the end of the day, we're not going to set the world on fire in one game."
Thomas said like all the clubs, he had to juggle his playing roster in line with the player point roster.
The player point system aims to make the competition more even so a club can't stack its roster with Intrust Super Cup or former NRL players.
"The player points system works very well," Thomas said.
"At the end of the day, most of these players, including Anthony Wattts, haven't played grade for up to six years.
"The only player we have is Con Mika who played in the Intrust Super Cup."
