Urunga fit for Woopi

IN THE words of coach Paul Pomroy, Urunga FC has been "poking along under the radar" and getting the job done.

The premiers are unbeaten after seven outings and it's unlikely that will change after today's meeting with Woolgoolga at High Street Oval.

"The way the draw is structured we had to play what were on paper the toughest teams early in the season," Pomroy said.

"One thing that helped us to get through was fitness and preparation, after getting all the boys back together again in January.

"A couple of weeks training in the hot sun sharpened them up and I think at least initially it was always going to be a big asset for us once the other sides started to get match fit.

"Once we get into the real cold winter days, if you get a knock or injury on the weekend, there's nothing worse than missing Tuesday night training and trying to catch up.

"Being fit keeps us going."

Pomroy is a realist and is confident of three points against the Wolves today despite a slight scare last time.

"They had us 2-1 down with 20 minutes to go and we had to pull out all stops.

"I take them seriously and we won't go easy."
