THE Phantoms will rest some of their more experienced players when they hit the road this weekend to Deniliquin.
It is the first away game for the Phantoms this season as they look for a win over a side they haven't faced in second grade for many years.
The Leeton club has had a difficult week in the aftermath of an on-field incident last week involving one of their players.
It is alleged a Phantoms player came off the bench and entered the field of play to become involved in a brawl during last weekend's game against Wagga City.
Southern Inland is still investigating the incident, but the result and possible punishment is yet to be determined.
However, Leeton Phantoms club president John Hill said on Thursday they too had been looking into the matter.
"We've done our own internal investigation and will be handing down a sanction ourselves ... this will be between the club and the player," he said.
Looking ahead to the weekend's match at Deniliquin, Hill said the side would be resting some of their first grade players that are playing in the reserve grade side this season due to Leeton not fielding the higher graded team.
Deniliquin have been undermanned in recent weeks and, given it is also the first road trip of the year for Leeton, the club will instead give some of the younger generation their turn on the paddock.
"It's going to be a mix of some of our younger players and our senior, experienced players," Hill said.
"With the expected wet weather, that was also a factor in our decision to rest some of the players and give others their turn at a full game.
"We're looking forward to going to Deni and playing them.
"They do seem to be struggling with numbers, but we expect them to still throw everything at us."
The Phantoms are gunning for their third consecutive win of the 2020 season as they look to build consistency in what is a shortened competition.
Spectators are able to also travel to Deniliquin to watch the game, with crowd numbers capped at 500.
