HE'S just five games into his senior coaching career, but Matt Schofield believes his Farrer League squad has the flair and speed to cause Hume headaches in their representative clash at Osborne Sportsground on Saturday.
Schofield has stepped up from junior coaching to take the reins at North Wagga Saints this season, who have won three of their first five games.
He sees the representative level as "just another challenge", and is confident he has the team to win.
"They've definitely got the talent," he said.
"The final team I ended up picking, I picked them because I think that's the best group of players that can play the way I like my teams to play.
"They've got a lot of speed, which I like, but aren't erratic."
Schofield has adopted the same philosophy he's installed at the Saints by blooding plenty of up-and-coming talent.
"There was some more experienced, older heads (available for selection) but I think it's good to develop the younger players," he said.
"It (coaching the representative team) probably wasn't something I expected to happen in my first (senior) year, but it's just another challenge."
The match will get underway at 2.15pm.
