Patience key for unbeaten Rangers

RUGBY : Unbeaten this season, Rangers head to Roma today full of confidence.

Up against the Echidnas, the ladder leaders are prepared for a challenge and are willing to fight to keep their perfect record intact.

“I imagine they have changed a lot as a team since the last time we played them,” Rangers coach Cameron Donaldson said.

“I know we (Rangers) have developed and changed a lot since the start of the season.

“We’re going out there expecting to be challenged.

“They’re a good side and I’m sure they’re not too far away from finding a bit of form.

“I think all the teams are starting to find their feet and structure now, so you can’t afford to get too far ahead of yourself.”

At home last week, Rangers weathered early first and second half storms against USQ Saints before calmer heads prevailed.

Rangers made the most of their opportunities in their 37-19 and Donaldson hopes to see more of the same from his side.

“Being patient is something we’ve focused on this season,” Donaldson said.

“We want to be calm and build through the phases when we have the ball.

“That doesn’t always happen but it’s an area we’re improving in all the time.

“We have some great young players and a few experienced heads that direct the play when they need to.”

Condamine Cods play host to Toowoomba Bears in the other Wagners Risdon Cup A-grade match – kicking off at 3pm.

Rangers’ clash with Roma starts at 4pm.
