LAUNCESTON will be looking to make the most of their opportunities during theirAnzac Day bout with Lauderdale at Windsor Park.
The Blueswent down to Devonport by 14points at home last week, while Lauderdale had a convincing 55-point triumphover reigning premiers North Launceston.
Ball use is somethingBlues coach Chris Hills said his young side must work on and that last week’s result showed Launceston can match it with the best“when we have a good go at it”.
“We are notfar off.We started well, we had a lot of the ball… we probably should have taken the four points but we are just not at that point where our players know how to win,” Hills said.
“Accuracy of our disposals is a constant one at the moment, we are adapting to hitting targets under pressure and we will get better in the second half of the year.
“We will improve on that as the season goes on.”
Launceston defeated Lauderdale the last time they visited Windsor Park andHills said the Southern Bombers were always a competitive outfit.
“You have to play Lauderdale on their merits, on the day,” he said.
“It is a pretty big game this week with Anzac Day so we try and embrace it and I think it will come down to the team that settles first and concentrates on footy as well.”
Young Blues’ defender Jack Donnellan has been ruled out of for the remainder of 2016 with an ACL injury, while Josh Bellchambers is rated a “30 per cent” chance to play with a bruised knee –both injuries sustained on Sunday.
JakeRice, ZachGriffiths, RyanTyrrell, Lachlan Edmunds, JakeHinds andMitchHodgetts are named in the squad.
