THE Kennedys Tours Shoalhaven Tigers men’s team will be looking for their seventh win on the trot on Saturday when they travel to the Northern Beaches Indoor Sports Centre to battle the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

Following a gutsy win against Canberra at the weekend, the fourth-placed Tigers need to win their remaining two regular season matches to ensure a home quarter-final.

“Manly are an unknown this week - all we know is that we are above them on the ladder,” coach Ian Ozolins said.

“But if we can play like we did in the second half against Canberra, with that defensive intensity, I think we can beat anyone in this competition.

“The way we pressured their shooters and forced them to make rushed decisions, is how we need to play for the full 40-minutes.

“We know our destiny, in regards to the home final, is in our own hands - so it’s up to us to keep winning.”

Tip-off is at 2pm.
