DEFENCE will be key for Orange CYMS’ league tag outfit when they make the trip to Lithgow to tackle defending premiers Bathurst St Pat’s.
“Without a doubt,” player Mandy Moore said ahead of tomorrow’s qualifying semi-final.
“We need to pressure them and stop them from spreading it wide.
“The last time we played them we didn’t do that and they hammered us. If we can grab their tags then the rest will take care of itself.”
St Pat’s and CYMS have split the two games they’ve played in 2013, with the Saints’ 30-0 demolition coming after CYMS won 16-4 back in round three.
Moore was confident of the “decider” going CYMS’ way.
“I definitely think we’ve got the team to make it to the grand final,” she said.
“It’s just about getting everyone on the field.”
Kate Foran, Nat Whiting and Tiarne Parkes are out for tomorrow’s match.
