THE Kennedys Tours Shoalhaven Tigers men’s team will attempt to return to the winner’s circle this Saturday when they host rivals the Illawarra Hawks at the Tigers Den from 6pm.

After having their unbeaten start broken in their last start against Lithgow, Ian Ozolins’ troops are keen to consolidate their spot on the ladder.

“We have to play to you strengths on Saturday by running the ball and getting into our free-flowing action on offence,” coach Ozolins said.

“It’s important we get a strong start, not be complacent, set the tone early and play our game.

“Obviously they got the jump on us earlier in the season, which forced us to battle back and win but we are now better prepared for them, as we know who their shooters are and what style they like to play.”

The Kennedys Tours women’s side will head to Minto on Saturday to play a double header. They will first play Coffs Harbour at 12pm before returning to the court at 4pm to play Maitland.
