Leeton will look to continue their strong start to the Group 20 season this weekend when they travel out to Yenda to take on the Blueheelers on Sunday afternoon.
Coach Hayden Philp was pleased to see most of this boys get through the match without injuries and keen to get back out on the park this weekend.
"I think there was a few sore bodies," he said.
"We had a bit of a run around and I say that would have helped them out last night and I think that would have been good for everyone."
There was only one major injury to come out of the clash with the Black and Whites last weekend with Bas Blackett dislocating his elbow but Philp said he was fortunate to escape without a break.
"He actually ended up putting it back in himself so that saved him a trip to Wagga," he said.
"He was sore yesterday (Tuesday) so it's a bit of a wait and see but probably be at least six weeks until he is right."
While losing a key forward like Blackett isn't ideal the Leeton coach feels his side has what it takes to cover for the loss.
"There is always injuries but every side has them and we will just have to overcome it. We have enough depth here this year which is good," he said. "That was something that we have plenty of local talent to be able to do it."
Philp is expecting a tough hit out against a young Blueheelers side.
"They have a lot of young talent and will look to utilise that and I am expecting quite a tight contest and it will be interesting to see how the boys back it up," he said.
