Yanco Wamoon will be looking to continue to build their momentum in the early season as they travel to Griffith to take on the Waratahs.

Off the back of the week off the side will be looking to pick up where they left off against Leeton.

Coach Glenn Dumbrell though it was just what the team needed heading into the match.

“We are building into the season quite nicely I think,” he said.

“With the Easter break, we have had two weeks to get ready for round two.”

The side will be coming into this game with confidence having seen off their local rivals in round one by six points in what Dumbrell though was a good quality footy game for the first 60 minutes.

The player-coach is looking forward to taking on a side which will pose a tough test for his boys.

“They are very strong and very fast,” he said.

“They can really pile on the points as well so we need to be at the top of our game.”

The Waratahs are coming into the game following a 14-point loss to Yenda in a game which ended in fiery circumstances.

The game was called off with 15 minutes to go after a fight broke out on the field and spilt into the crowd forcing the officials to take to outstanding measures. 

“I’m not too sure what has come out of that,” he said.

“We are expecting them to have a full team at this stage because haven’t heard about any suspensions coming for it.”

Dumbrell is also aware of who there are really going to have to look after if they want to have success in the game.

“Tim Rices gets them on the front foot going up the middle of the field,” he said.

"They have plenty of strike weapons right across the field, so we need to be aware.”

The action will get underway at Exies Oval with the under 16s looking to bounce back from a 46-14 loss to Leeton in round one with their game kicking off the action at 10am with the first-grade game down to start at around 2.40pm.
