Horsham Hornets to relax after a 'hectic' away schedule

THE Horsham Hornets will enjoy a break for the next two weeks, giving them a chance to nurse some minor injuries.

Hornets coach Cam Bruce said the break had come at the perfect time. 

“We’ve had this week off training, just to recharge and refresh the batteries,” he said. 

“We have a few niggling injuries. It’s been pretty hectic with the away games. It’s an ideal time to get everyone fresh and healthy.”  

The team’s next challenge will be Bendigo away from home on November 25. 

It’s an ideal time to get everyone fresh and healthy.

Horsham had a comfortable win against Bendigo in round three, but Bruce is expecting a different opposition for the clash. 

“Last time we played Bendigo, they were tipped to be favourites. They were missing a few key players. It will be interesting to see how we go in the match-up against them,” he said. 

The Hornets will then travel to Mildura before returning to Horsham for a string of home games. 

Bruce said the team was relishing the opportunity of playing at home in Horsham, having played one game at home so far this season.

“We’re excited about the games coming up. We’ll be looking forward to getting home and playing in front of our home crowd,” he said.

“It’s obviously a big advantage [playing at home] with the support we get from the community.”
