JEPARIT-RAINBOW senior coach Tim Inkster said the early games of the Horsham District season were all about getting his side to know more about each other. 

Ahead of the Storm’s second away game for the season against a young Noradjuha-Quantong outfit, Inkster said his side was still finding its feet.

“The first few games are all about getting to know your teammates and getting some consistency and timing with each other,” he said.

“There are heaps of little things to work on at this early stage of the season.

“We are still getting to know ourselves with some new blokes in the team.”

Despite being young, the Bombers could cause an upset or two this season.

Inkster said he was not quite sure what to expect from Noradjuha-Quantong.

“They are a pretty young team and they are a bit of an unknown,” he said.

“I’m sure they will be keen and competitive. The first half of the year will all be a bit unknown.”

Inkster said his side would look to use its height and strength as an advantage against the Bombers at the weekend.

“We do have some height and if we get the right match-ups we will have to exploit that,” he said.

Luke Werner and Heath Clugston will be missing for Jeparit-Rainbow due to injuries picked up in round one.
