CSU coach Scott Hatch said it has been a big week at the club.

“It’s the biggest weekend of the year. Every player that has ever played will be coming,” he said.

“We’re expecting a massive crowd to support the boys.

“Training has been top notch. Everyone is keen to pull the jersey on this week.”

The Students have been plagued by injuries all season but will look to play an almost full strength squad against the Dubbo Kangaroos at University Oval this weekend.

“It’s the first week where we’re almost playing a full strength squad. We’re at about 95 per cent,” Hatch said.

“We’ll be looking to put some of the stuff we’ve been working on into place.

“We’ve been working on our attack by offering more options. The ownership needs to be on each other and working together to offer more options.

“Our defence has been improving, as a unit, even though the score lines haven’t suggested that.

“Most weeks we are playing half our colts up in seconds and first [and that won’t be the case this weekend]. They haven’t had much chance to work together as a squad.”

Students will be looking for revenge against Kangaroos, after they were soundly beaten 96-17 at No. 1 Oval in Dubbo in May. 

Kick-off is at 3.15pm on Saturday afternoon.
