Troy Barby will miss Kangaroos game with Southcity on Saturday.

With one win from five rounds to start the season, an increasing injury toll is compounding Kangaroos slow start the to season.

Although their biggest losing margin has been 10 points, things haven’t come together so far for the Wagga club.

Now they have to face ladder leaders Southcity on Saturday without Riverina forward Troy Barby (knee), halfback Dylan McLachlan (hamstring), Nic Baker (groin) and Jeremy Hampton (knee).

They do welcome back Adam Coote with captain-coach Ben Jeffery moving back from hooker to five-eighth.

Jeffery admitted to was far from ideal heading into the clash with the in-form Bulls.

He’s looking to avoid what have been some costly lapses to start the season.

“We are close but just not getting over the line,” Jeffery said.

“We have lapses here and there with some poor decision at the wrong time and it hurts us.”

While the game is a Bulls home one it has been transferred to Equex Centre.
