LAST TIME WE MET

Daniel Leck and Zac Anderson were on target for Olympic, but goals from Josh Moreland and Eli Adams saw Roar twice claw their way back to claim a point.
WHAT WAS SAID – Forward: Daniel Leck
“It’s a massive game for our season, the top six teams are playing each other this weekend, so it’s very important that we get three points to put us in a good spot heading into the back end of the season.
“The first win back against Knights was huge for us, huge for the confidence, last week (Capalaba) was a bit of a grind but it just shows that we can find a way to win and how together the boys are.
“We can grind a tough win in difficult conditions like that, our confidence is high at the moment.
“Three points this weekend puts us right in the mix, we just need to keep winning games, keep getting three points every week and the rest will take care of itself.”
