Wallaroos seek improvement on recent performances

POOR handling and execution has forced Wallaroos to stumble through the opening two rounds of the Bundaberg Rugby League.

A 10-point loss to Easts Magpies and draw against Isis Devils has left the club in sixth spot on the ladder.

While the season is only two weeks old, coach Peter Waters has not been overly impressed with what he's seen on the field.

The 28-all draw with Isis on April 9 left Waters disappointed more than anything.

"That game was there for the taking, but I think we lacked a little bit of direction in the middle," he said.

"I've been really disappointed with our ball handling and that first week (against Easts) was terrible."

Wallaroos have a chance to set things right when they face A-grade newcomers Maryborough Brothers at Stafford Park.

Better yet, Waters has named a full-strength side for the first time. Ben Waters returns to five-eighth while Joel Richards is back from injury.

While the side has looked good on the training paddock, Waters wants to see them put it together on the field.

Waters said that despite Maryborough Brothers' big loss his side had to ensure it started well.

"They were very competitive for the first 30 minutes," he said.

"If they start like that we'll have to match them. They've got a lot of go-forward.

"I'd like to think we can get them the longer the match wears on."

Kick-off is at 1.20pm.
