CSU will have their best opportunity to earn their first Blowes Clothing Cup win this Saturday when they travel to face Mudgee Wombats.
The match pits together the two teams on the foot of the table, and in the eyes of CSU coach Scott Hatch it’s a game that either side could feel like they’re favourites.
“It’s a very important game. It’s game that both teams will believe they can, and should, win,” he said.
“Going through a full round of matches without a with is not something that was on my to-do list. I want to see them get this win, and more in the rest of the season.
“We’ve had a look at what we’ve been doing and how we’ve been doing it, seeing where we need to improve.”
The students return from the fortnight’s break looking to put a 60-29 loss to the Cowra Eagles behind them.
Maintaining a strong intensity at training is the name of the game for CSU.
Hatch said his men have been committed to improving themselves in the lead up to the second round of BCC matches.
“Coming up to the holidays and exams we’ve been trying to get some extra training sessions in. We’ve added a Wednesday scrum session and a couple of extra gym sessions,” he said.
“One of the best things about this club is that it’s not always about the wins and the losses. It’s about developing these guys into great men and great rugby players.”
The Wombats, who have scored an average of one try a game, will also be aiming for their first win of the season.
Mudgee went down 67-10 to Orange City in their previous match.
