With all Grades getting on the paddock this weekend, we will finally get an indication as to how all of the Clubs are travelling in the new season.
1st Grade have a wonderful opportunity to charge away
early in the season against recent powerhouses Warilla at Cavalier Park.
Early indications are that the Kookaburras may well find the going a
lot tougher this season, and 1sts must take advantage of that in the
coming match. 1st Grade have an abysmal record against Warilla, having
won only 5 matches out of the 45 played between the two sides since
Warilla’s initial season in 1979/80 – the last victory coming on
December 22, 1990. If Kiama are to move forward this season, they must
overcome this to do so.
2nd Grade had a rough start; falling to
an opponent they should have defeated comfortably, and will be looking
to rectify that against Warilla at Oakleigh Park.
2nds will be in the
mix again this season, but their charter has been reformed from recent
seasons. Unlike recent times, the 2nd Grade side is expected to be
filled with players who are aiming at playing 1st Grade, rather than
with players who for one reason or another will not gain elevation to
the top Grade.
The selectors have been consistent in this attitude
throughout the pre-season. It may affect the overall playing strength of
the side, but it will certainly improve the long-term strength of the
1st Grade side, and this is what the Club must be aiming for.
match against Warilla, who are angling the same way themselves, will be
the benchmark. Win the game, and the season is back on track. Lose the
game, and the focus may change entirely.
3rd Grade has a wealth
of playing talent to sift through and call upon as a result of 2nd
Grade’s charter. The team for the weekend’s match against The Rail Red
at Bonaira Street has an abundance of talent and experience, and must be
seriously thinking about a maiden premiership. Containing players like
Jason Wills, AJ Savage, Simon Pearson, Jeff Lawler, Luke Bombaci and
Ryan Gunning, this side, if it stays together, should be one of the
dominating sides of the summer.
The Rail has two sides in the 3rd
Grade competition this season, and if recent history is any guide, it
should be a fairly comfortable victory to the Kiama side.
Grade will hope to reap the rewards of last season’s youth investment
policy, by pushing for more victories, and the further development of
the Club’s future. Most of the kids who played last season have returned
for another crack, and no doubt the experience that they gained from
last season will benefit them enormously.
They face The Rail in their first match, and will be confident of putting a win on the board.
The word from around the Club is to keep an eye on youngster Eric Mete. We shall see how his season progresses.
– away we go. The coming few weekends will soon tell the tale of how
Kiama can hope to go this season. If they perform to their potential, it
should be one of the most exciting in recent years.
