Uralla is looking to regain lost form at the business end of the season, and hope Saturday’s home clash against Bingara provides the spark to achieve that.
The sixth-placed Tigers’ four straight wins are a distant memory, with the side trying to rebound after their winning run was snapped by a loss to Bendemeer.
Uralla snapped a two-match losing sequence with a 24-20 away defeat of Dungowan last round. But Tigers coach Brett Monley said the Cowboys deserved to win. “We need to start to gel as a team and make sure we complete our sets of six,” he said.
Uralla will be without several regular starters against the Cowboys, including second-rower Beau Hargrave (“niggly” injuries), prop Grant Cooper (shoulder) and co-captain Josh Clark (calf).
In other Second Division matches, Dungowan and Bendemeer played in Tamworth on Friday night, while on Saturday the Roosters travel to Bundarra, Walcha welcome Barraba, and Boggabri host Werris Creek.
