LEETON is continuing to shore up its O'Farrell Cup team ahead of their challenge against Albury this weekend, but captain Nathan Carn is confident heading into the clash.
Albury have been a powerhouse in the O’Farrell Cup competition this season and will provide a significant challenge to the Wolves on Sunday when they take them on at the border town.
Numbers are still being finalised for the match, but Leeton will likely be taking a team with both experience and youth.
Some of the experience comes in the form of Carn, his older brother Josh and Daniel Muir.
It is also possible Nick Morris, who lives in Albury, but hails from Leeton, may also make an appearance.
Some of the youngsters set to play will include Angus Boulton, Jock Yelland, Kyle Pete and Josh Lanham.
“I think it will be good for the younger boys to step up and play O’Farrell,” Carn said.
“A lot of the older blokes won’t be around playing forever, so it’s a good chance for them to play and get a taste for it.”
With Albury set to provide a huge challenge, they defeated Yass last weekend by eight wickets, Carn wasn’t too fazed.
“Sometimes when you’re going so well you can get a bit complacent, so hopefully that happens and we can take advantage of it,” he said.
“We’ve just got to worry about ourselves.
“It would be good to get some good runs on the board so we can set ourselves up in the field then.”
The Wolves won the O’Farrell Cup twice last year against Griffith and Yass before falling to Wagga.
