NSW GPS: Defence the key for King’s in big ‘final’ against Joeys

By MARK CASHMAN

Like any important game at any level, the NSW GPS “final” between St Joseph’s College and The King’s School will go to the team that first of all aims up in defence.

That’s the opinion of King’s forwards coach Hugh Perrett as the countdown continues to the big game on Wednesday afternoon at Hunters Hill.

“Defensively we’ve got to make sure that we play with our heads up,” Perrett stressed.

“Playing a team like Joeys who like to run it from everywhere we’ve got to make sure that we get our spacing right and stay connected in defence for 80 minutes.
