Mosman will be eager to bounce back from last weekend’s match to forget when they travel to face a Narrabeen at Narrabeen Sports High on Saturday.
After a promising start to the season the Whales now sit in 10th position after suffering a 7-1 defeat to St Augustines last weekend.
After enjoying a 3-0 win over Curl Curl and pushing Brookvale all the way a round earlier, their coach Luke Tinker felt as though his squad were “not far away” from where he hoped they would be.
He admits last weekend’s performance has played its part in altering that perspective.
“It’s taken a lot of character and resilience to bounce back each week and put in solid performances,” he said.
“But we are right back to the drawing board after an unacceptable performance against Saints last weekend.”
This weekend Mosman face a Narrabeen side who were firmly cemented in the top four for the majority of the season.
Ross Talarico’s young outfit have surprised many this season and will also be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing result after a 2-0 defeat to Strikers last weekend.
“I am hoping to raise spirits this week in training ready to bounce back Saturday against Narrabeen,” Tinker said.
“Narrabeen are a good team and can really play when they start moving the ball around.
“But for me it’s all about making sure the best Mosman turn up.”
