MANLY Vale A coach Tony Bruzzano is bracing himself for a torrid afternoon when his side take on Beacon Hill this Sunday at Melwood Oval.
Beacon are flying at the moment, chalking up impressive wins last Sunday and on Monday.
Manly Vale A are slowly clicking into gear, but will be backing up from Thursday night’s derby with Manly Vale B.
“It is a tough ask, Beacon Hill are going very well,” Bruzzano said.
“We may have a few heavy legs, but that’s football.
“Hopefully we can give them a good game.”
Other fixtures see Seaforth take on Avalon and Wakehurst entertain Brookvale.
Manly Vale B have the bye.
