Half Zach Dockar-Clay has predicted solid improvement in the Wentworthille Magpies side two weeks out from their Round 1 NSW Cup match of 2015.
Wenty was defeated 26-20 in the side’s trial match against the Penrith Panthers, despite laying on three quick tries in the second half and keeping the hosts scoreless for the final 33 minutes of the match.
“It definitely wasn’t the result we wanted,” Dockar-Clay said.
“That first 10 minutes we were in the ruck and we were with them, back and forth, but that started catching up with us. They started getting a bit of a roll on and our bigger boys started getting a bit tired.”
“But we weren’t giving up,” Dockar-Clay added.
The half played alongside 13 other members of the Eels NRL squad in the Wenty trial, and Dockar-Clay points to plenty of room for improvement in his own, and the side’s, performance.
“[Today’s game] probably wasn’t one of my best but as the game went on I started feeling a little more comfortable.”
“We’ve got a couple of weeks to work on our shape and we’re still got a lot to improve on, but the boys are looking good for Round One.”
