Young is looking to create a sense of deja vu for Griffith in their O’Farrell Cup challenge on Sunday.

Twelve months ago Young caused a surprise when they downed Griffith to take the cup in their first challenge in over a decade.

They have the chance to repeat the dose when the two sides clash at Exies Oval.

Captain Sam Langford is taking a full strength side to Griffith and is looking forward to having another shot at the tougher competition.

“It doesn’t matter who you play as you have to win to get the cup but it will be good,” Langford said.

“It is a good deck up there, a good oval so it should an interesting game.”

After failing to retain the cup when they faced Young last time out, Griffith captain Haydn Pascoe wants his team to take the most of their opportunities.

“We just need to get the runs on the board and make sure we take our catches,” Pascoe said.

“Sam Langford was the only player who got runs against us last time, so we just need to make sure we don’t give any easy chances.

“We have also been losing wickets in big clumps and not being able to form partnerships and that will be key as well.”

Pascoe was proud of the way some of the younger boys performed last weekend and took their chance to perform in an important game.

He admitted there were tough decisions made around the selection table on Wednesday night.

“There are a few changes from last weekend, and it was tough to change a winning side,” he said.

“We have had some guys come back from holidays so it should be a pretty full strength side.”

Pascoe is hopeful he will line-up on Sunday after missing the win over Cootamundra due to a back concern.
