Cold start for Bega Bombers no problem

IT COULD be a case of cold engines for the Bega Bombers following two weeks off the park.

The senior Aussie rules squad will take on the Bermagui Breakers this weekend, but could be a bit stiff from the extended break.

The club had been gaining plenty of traction in the lead-up.

“We did have a lot of momentum,” coach Chris Dwyer said.

“It will be interesting to see if we can play to our style from before the break.”

A main target for the Bega roster this year has been to win home games and build a reputation around the Bega Showground.

Numbers at training dipped a bit lower than Dwyer would like, but the squad knows what he expects of them.

“The boys know the plan so should be up for the game and raring to go,” he said.

“Things picked up this week [at training] and we’ll be looking for a strong performance.”

Rising young star Kel Evans will miss the contest, but the club has been revelling in renewed youth this year.

The inclusion of Dale Leahy and Nick Forrester has been a boon for the club.

“Dale has been really good and he’ll step up again, while Nick has so much improvement still to come,” Dwyer said.

The club has really stepped up this year and is challenging the big names of the league.

“On our best day I think we can challenge any team in the comp, including Pambula,” Dwyer said.

He is looking forward to the clash with Bermagui and said after a round one loss, a win in Bega “would be a bit of revenge” for the Bombers.

The development grade will prelude the seniors at the Bega Showground from 12.30pm on Saturday.
