Local rugby action will continue this weekend when Khomasdal outfit Western Suburbs return to action with a tie against Rehoboth Rugby Club tomorrow at the Rehoboth High School fields, while another exciting clash is set for the town of Grootfontein between Unam and Grootfontein Rugby Club.

Suburbs head coach Jacques Bock yesterday said last weekend’s 12-24 defeat against Wanderers was a bad day at the office and they have since worked on their mistakes, saying tomorrow’s match against Rehoboth will be the perfect opportunity to dust themselves off.

“It was a tough match against a quality Wanderers team but we did not have a bad game, though; it was just some little errors that cost us the match. We could not enforce our game plan against Wanderers; we went on a defensive mode instead of attacking – and that’s where our downfall came about. But heading into Saturday’s match, we plan on sticking to our game plan – and that is to come out guns blazing. We have prepared well and did some little changes to our approach, so we will be gunning for maximum points against Rehoboth,” said Bock.

Unam will travel northwards to battle it out against home side Grootfontein Rugby Club tomorrow in what is expected to be a match where no quarter will be asked nor given, as both teams have been on a good run since the season started.

Coastal outfit Kudus will this weekend touch down in the capital to battle it out against a well-oiled Wanderers side, which has been displaying great form. Kudus should anticipate a war-like encounter against the very physical Wanderers. The two sides will be in action at the Wanderers rugby field tomorrow.
