Rugby league will return to Bill Andriski Oval on Sunday when the Mollymook Golf Club Bulldogs hosts the Berry Magpies. The first fixture will commence at 10.45 am.
Milton's coach Nathaniel Morrison will be looking forward to a win which would be the Dogs’ first for the year. Berry have a 1-3 record after three rounds.
After sustaining a 40-16 touch up from Jamberoo at their last outing, Morrison will need to consider some changes in order to increase his charges ability to penetrate opposition defensive lines.
On paper the team rings of ability but has not yet gelled and has found it difficult to accumulate sufficient points to stay in the contest. Battagliolo, Goodman and Moore have been consistent so far.
On Sunday, Berry will be coming off a narrow loss to premiers Nowra Jets 25-18 after the two teams met at Berry under lights last Saturday night. Both teams lost their fullbacks to injury in the second half of that game.
Berry's Josh Coulter was nursing a hand injury and expects to be fit for Sunday’s match at Mollymook.
Nowra's Steve Brandon who outclassed his opposition at Mollymook a few weeks ago took control at Berry with Berry leading 12-6 at halftime and the guile of Brandon saw Nowra get home.
At Bill Andriski Oval Bulldogs supporters will be looking to a win to break the drought.
Milton Ulladulla's Reserve Grade will also be looking for their first win against Berry who will be coming off a defeat by Nowra Jets 36-10 last round. Milton were defeated 30-20 by Jamberoo last outing.
They were always in the game but poor handling let them down once again. At home there will be an expectation that they get their first victory.
The Under 18s chalked up a win away from home last round when they defeated Culburra 14-10. This was their first win and they will be looking to string 2 together when they meet Berry.
Berry defeated premiers Nowra 26-6 in round 3 at Berry. This game could well be the match of the day with Milton Ulladulla holding the home game advantage.
Milton Ulladulla Women's League team are still the standouts in the Bulldogs club. Coming off a win over Culburra Dolphins, the girls should be too good for Berry.
The Great Southern Region (Southern Division) selectors have shown faith in the club in choosing Cheyanne Hatch, Hannah Prouten, Georgia Thomas to represent GSR in the Country Rugby League Championships later this month.
Kiama have four players selected and Jamberoo two players. Seven players from Group 6 have been selected and 3 from Group 16 including Australian Ladies Rugby League rep. Kezie Apps of Bega.
