The Rock-Yerong Creek will take the opportunity to get some miles into the legs of Josh Meiselbach at Barellan on Saturday.

With ruckman Lachie Hunter unavailable for the Pies’ last game before finals, Meiselbach comes in for just the third time this year.

“He played against Temora and hurt his hamstring but he played last week in the twos,” TRYC coach Tom Yates said.

“We all know how he plays and what he brings – he’ll bring 110 percent – so it’ll be great to have him for finals.”

Yates said he’s not taking the Two Blues lightly, particularly with the Pies still in the mix to finish third.

“We know they’re going to be tough out there, it should be a good game,” he said.

“I’m definitely not taking them lightly. But hopefully we can get the win and, depending on results, you never know what might happen.”

The Pies are fourth, a win behind North Wagga who have the bye this week.

With a win at Barellan and the bye to come next week, TRYC could climb into third if North Wagga were to lose to CSU in the last round.

Or if Temora were to drop their last two games – against East Wagga-Kooringal and Coleambally – the Pies could jump them on the ladder.
