Heading into November the Bulls were on top of the table but they haven’t found their way to a victory since then, and now sit 13 points adrift of a top four spot.

Minor premiership contenders St Pat’s present a tough hurdle for Bulls.

With Pat’s it’s always their young guns you’ve got to look out for.

Saints were the club who started the Centennials’ losing streak but now the Bulls have a great chance to end it.

Centennials showed encouraging signs in defeat to new competition leaders Bathurst City last round.

Bulls captain Andrew Brown said the work with the bat and the second week was admirable, and he’d like to see that effort continue this Saturday.

“There wasn’t a lot to take away from that game but we get another chance to find a win this week,” he said.

“The way we batted in that second innings was really positive. It was just a bit too hard in that first innings on the wet deck.

“With Pat’s it’s always their young guns you’ve got to look out for … but we should be at full strength for this game.

The match takes place at Morse Park 1.
