NARRABEEN coach Ross Talarico has declared Saturday’s away clash versus Manly Vale is a “six point game.”
Both squads have struggled this year, with just a point between them after six rounds.
A victory this weekend would be massive for either team, who are staring relegation in the face.
“It is a huge game, no doubt about that,” Talarico said ahead of the encounter at David Thomas Reserve.
“We are down on numbers but we know how valuable a win could be.
“I’m confident we will pick up plenty of points over the next few weeks, but we will definitely take three (points)this weekend if we are good enough.”
Talarico added his team have copped plenty of soft goals due to nave defending.
“Inexperience has played a part, but we are also switching off at crucial times,” he said.
“Morale is still good though, the boys are upbeat.”
