THE Phantoms will search to keep their perfect winning record in place this weekend, but in their road will be a formidable opposition in the Wagga Waratahs.
Leeton will be on the road again for Saturday's second grade match in what should be a tough, physical encounter for the undefeated side.
The Waratahs are also yet to lose a match this season, meaning Saturday's contest should be a big test for both teams.
Phantoms club president John Hill said the Leeton side was looking forward to the challenge.
"Waratahs have always been strong across all of their grades for many years," he said.
"I expect them to be well-drilled and very correct and direct in how they play.
"They will be well-disciplined on their set pieces. Their style of play is very much about using their forwards to get over that advantage line before having the opportunity to use their backs."
The Phantoms expect to again have a full squad to choose from for the weekend's match and will head in with a similar game plan to last week.
A key factor of their thinking will be to get away to a good start and really make an impact on the match early in attempt to rattle their Waratahs opposition.
Rain is forecast again on Friday and into Saturday, but Hill said that could be an advantage for the Phantoms.
"That might actually play into our hands a little bit ... we've got a big, solid forward pack," he said.
"If it's a little bit wet that plays into our hands. The game might become a little bit tighter and played in the forwards more so than in the backs.
"If we can utilise our big men to run at their smaller players we'll be able to get that dominance up front and give us the opportunity to use our speed out wide."
The Phantoms remain on top of the ladder, but they are aware there is no room for complacency in what is a shortened season.
The goal this weekend will be to not just come away with the win, but to really test their abilities against what is expected to be a tough opposition before they sit next weekend out with the bye.
The match gets underway at Conolly Park from 12.40pm on Saturday.
