Adam Meiklejohn: Eagles will be heading into the game relaxed. FILE PHOTO.The Eagles take on Orange Emus tomorrow in what is a crucial game for Cowra. Currently in sixth position the Eagles, realistically, can probably only afford one more loss if other results going their way. Last week was a tough defeat at the hands of Bathurst but plenty of possession and opportunities suggest the Eagles are capable of an upset over the Emus this weekend.
“We are fast running out of time,” skipper Adam Meiklejohn admitted.
“We’ll head into this game with a relaxed approach, if we get a win that’s all well and good but its more now a process of building into our last three games so we can have a real crack.”
The Emus are coming off the back of a win over Forbes at Grinsted Oval but were far from impressive in the first half.
They remain equal top of the competition table, however, thanks to turning a five point deficit at the break into a 19 point victory at the final whistle.
“They have excellent direction from their five-eighth and they got some big forwards. It’s going to be a good old fashioned man-up in defence,” Meiklejohn said.
Cowra will be without hooker Charlie Dunhill, which gives Brian Swords an opportunity in first grade.
