Sam's freedom plan
CONSOLIDATION, confidence and playing with freedom is the aim of Wedderburn coach Sam Barnes for the Redbacks over the next fortnight
Injury has decimated the Redbacks this season but assured of playing North Central finals, Barnes said he wanted the team to “to play with freedom and dash and take the game on” against Charlton on Saturday.
And with the final home and away season match against Wycheproof Narraport, Barnes said the next fortnight was an opportunity “to play the style of footy we want and take that into the finals”.
Barnes said the Redbacks had 23 players from their start-of-season list either injured or unavailable for last Saturday’s clash against Birchip Watchem. “That’s more than a team, we were able to cover it but not the situation you want to be in,” he said.
“It put pressure on the bottom end of our list. We were lucky to get two teams into the park.”
