Warriors and Eagles vying for a win on Saturday

RUGBY LEAGUE: The winless Biggenden Warriors will go up against the Eidsvold Eagles this weekend.

The game will kick off at 7pm at the Eidsvold rugby league grounds.

Biggenden Warriors president Justin Vicary said his team was playing well but had not been able to secure a win.

"We're going pretty well,” Vicary said.

"We're always learning and getting better as we take the field.

"We haven't had a win yet, but we did have a draw last week.”

Vicary said his team had several areas that needed working on but as the weeks went by, his team was improving.

"We have to work on our ball handling skills, shuffling in defence and communication as we have quite a few new players this season,” he said.

"This season half our team are new players which is good to see, some players have played before, others it's their first game.”

Vicary said the club used to play for the Northern Districts but as of last year when the team reformed, had joined the Central Burnett Rugby League competition.

"We have a lot of juniors from Biggenden but because it's our second year as a club, a lot of them play for Childers or Gayndah,” he said.

Vicary said there's been some star performances this season.

"Jesse George goes from strength to strength and he's building up on that,” Vicary said.

"The fullback is playing really good football, he's going great guns and will be a player to watch in the future.”

Vicary said the Eidsvold Rugby League Club is performing well this season.

"It should be a good outing in Eidsvold on Saturday night,” he said.

"It's the first home game for the club.

"The Eidsvold team are playing well, it will be a hard-fought match as we're an evenly matched team.”

It's the second year Vicary is president of the club and he's hoping to take out the grand final.

"We'd love to win the grand final, if we continue to improve every game, we might be a contest,” he said.

The game kicks off at 7pm on Saturday night at the Eidsvold rugby league grounds.

The bar and canteen will be available from 6.30pm and all members of the public are invited to attend to show their support for the teams.

"We'd love to see the locals come out this Saturday night and support both teams, it's going to be a hard-fought game,” Vicary said.
