Valleys Diehards take on ladder leading Calliope Roosters

VALLEYS Diehards will host a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday when they take on the ladder leading Calliope Roosters.

Valleys president Keiran Lawler said the game would be fast-paced and the score would be tight.

"It's going to be a brutal game," Lawler said.

The teams are yet to face off in 2013 but Lawler predicted Calliope would be competitive.

"Calliope is going to be the team to beat this year."

However he said Valleys would be up for the challenge.

"We haven't really played to our fullest yet.

"If we stick to the game plan and strategies we'll improve out of sight."

Calliope coach Russell Thomas said Valleys would test his team.

"They'll have done their homework," Thomas said.

"We need to be on our game in all aspects."

Calliope will be missing a couple of players this week but Thomas said that was no excuse.

Lawler said Valleys didn't want to be beaten at home and was hoping there would be plenty of crowd support.

"There will be plenty of feeling," he said.

The Under 18s will kick off on Sunday at noon, followed by reserves at 1.15pm and the A grade clash at 2.45pm.

Valleys home ground can be found on Aerodrome Rd and bar and canteen facilities will be operating.
