IF the season was brought to a sudden halt, and finals were called this weekend defending Farrer League premiers Temora would not qualify.
The Kangaroos are placed seventh from nine teams however coach Christin Macri isn’t particularly concerned.
“It’s not a dire straits situation,” he said.
With 12 rounds of the competition remaining Macri believes there’s ample time to climb the ladder and qualify for the finals.
“Finals are too far away to worry about,” Macri said.
He asserted the ladder does not reflect the nature of Temora’s losses.
“We’ve lost four games by under three goals.”
According to Macri conviction is the difference between losing by a few points and winning.
“When they’re struggling and behind by a few goals the guys tighten up a bit; they don’t take as many risks,” Macri said.
He has been advising the team to “play with freedom” regardless of what’s on the scoreboard.
The team will be in good tread for the game against Barellan on Saturday after training consistently and having six players on the Farrer League representative squad.
“We certainly would like to string a few wins together,” he said.
