PETER Waters' sole fear is Wallaroos have already played their "grand final".

Wallaroos were written off by many pundits at the start of the Bundaberg Rugby League season, but their performances in the first two rounds have shown the Maryborough club can be a force to be reckoned with.

They were level with Wests Panthers at half time in their first-round game, while they led Hervey Bay Seagulls for 65 minutes of their derby at Eskdale Park last week.

Wallaroos will face their third, but arguably most challenging, match against the unbeaten Past Brothers at Childers today.

"Ahh, the defending premiers," Waters said.

"We watched them play at Hervey Bay and they're probably quicker (than the Seagulls) but not as big.

"My only fear is they played their grand final last week. It might be tough to get up for another big game but we'll find out on the night.

"It will be hard. We've been in front or level at half time in both games so far but we just have to get on with it."

Wallaroos have shuffled their side after Mark Berkery was suspended.
