Marlins facing a tough mission

DON’T hit the play button on the theme music to Mission Impossible just yet but make sure you keep the CD nice and handy.

Even though they’re playing on home turf, the SCU Marlins face a mammoth task this afternoon against MNC Rugby juggernaut Hastings Valley.

Marlins coach Brett Davis said the focus for his young team that will be without captain Cameron Smith is to concentrate on its strengths as much as possible.

“We need to try and hang onto the ball better than we did last week, make as few a mistakes as possible before shifting it as much as possible to give it to our backs which is a strength of ours,” Davis said.

The Coffs Snappers will also be playing at home today against Grafton.
