IT will be one of the biggest tasks Pimpinio coach Josh Beddison will have to face.

His side hosts 2016 grand finalist Harrow-Balmoral on Saturday. 

The Southern Roos ran riot in the first game against Kalkee and will be hungry for more in round two.

Beddison understands this game will be a tough challenge for every one of his players. 

“(Harrow-Balmoral is) definitely the benchmark this year but we will aim to stick to our game plan and our structures,” he said. 

“We had a big week of training before Easter and worked on every aspect of our game. 

“The Laharum game (in round one) was a bit of an eye-opener for the boys.” 

Roos coach Paul Cleaver has said before, his side must maintain attacking pressure and concede less in order to guarantee a top-two finish this season.  

Cleaver said the Roos return from Easter feeling fresh. 

“We had a bit of a break (with) no training on the Thursday before Easter and the boys are looking good,” he said.

“The main thing we have been working on is our game plan and getting our heads around that. 

“I think our forward line did well last week and we’ll be looking for more of the same.” 

Cleaver said he hoped his side could continue to put big scores on the board.

Eric Guthrie will be rested this week.
