With a young back line, there will always be learning curves and Orange City manager John Nunn believes there are lessons to be learned from their second round game against the Cowra Eagles. In their home opener, the Lions fought hard, but the 2021 Minor Premiers proved too strong, claiming a 32-5 win. After losing 18-13 to Dubbo Roos last weekend, Nunn believes Cowra presented a different challenge for his team. “We didn’t get through the gates fast enough today,” he said. “Last week we could have won that game, I think it was a good start for us in the season, but today we came up against bigger bodies and a bigger attacking group. They taught some of our young guys a lesson to some extent and we got caught playing their game instead of our game, so we have to learn to be a little more patient with our process.” “What we practiced wasn’t what we did today – our kicks, terrible, our scrums were good and then they got weaker and then they were good again. We worked on the lineups all week and we nailed about four today and we were stealing the ball from Dubbo last week and we haven’t stolen any this week but not to take anything away from Cowra they’re a good team.” that mistakes were their downfall, the coach was delighted with his team’s attitude, especially his youngsters. “They didn’t give up, which was a credit to them, they hung on for the whole game”, “They made a few mistakes, but it’s about the process, with some of them going straight from the Colts to freshman,” he said. They’re all disappointed, I’m disappointed and we probably made Cowra look good today.” While their ladies’ day was originally scheduled for Saturday, a good crowd gathered at Pride Park with Nunn saying there was a good sense of club culture developing. “It’s a good atmosphere, there’s a good atmosphere around the place, around the club, this year,” he said. “He said. The mentality is good and I think in four or five weeks we will be at our peak and we will see what happens next.” In a sign of positivity, new signing Mark Burton scored his first while the other new clubman, Nathan Ah Kee, made his debut last week.
