Victory vital for GRUFC
THEY'VE done it once, they can do it again.
That is Gladstone Rugby Union Football Club coach Stian Wentzel's theory when it comes to the must-win clash against Brothers this weekend.
With five games remaining before the preliminary finals, he said his team needed four wins to keep its finals hopes alive.
"We need to win," Wentzel said. "It is crucial."
But playing at Meteors Oval in front of what he hoped would be a strong home crowd, Wentzel said his players could get just their sixth win of the season.
"The guys are comfortable and we are confident that we will win this Brothers game.
"We have won against Brothers before and we can do it again."
Wentzel said he would not accept a 99% effort from Gladstone this weekend, expecting the team to step up in defence.
"We have worked very hard on defence in the last two weeks," he said.
Adding to the anticipation for tomorrow's clash is the fact it is the club's sponsors' day.
"We want to show the sponsors why they invested in us," Wentzel said.
