Hervey Bay Bombers to consider a secret weapon
TONY Potter will consider unleashing a secret weapon when they host The Waves.
The Hervey Bay Bombers coach entertained the idea of making his side arrive at their Raward Rd base via a team bus on Saturday, and a glance at their record shows why its not a terrible idea.
The Bombers' three wins this year all came in away games after at least 90 minutes on the bus.
Their two losses, against unbeaten pair Brothers Bulldogs and Bay Power, both occurred in Hervey Bay.
"It might that team building before games," he said. "Maybe we need to catch a bus to every game," he added with a laugh.
Potter expressed concern at how his side would adapt to Pomona's smaller field, but those fears were allayed by the second half.
"It was scrappy and horrible footy in the first half," Potter said.
"We had plenty of ball but didn't do anything with it."
A few positional changes later and the Bombers found their groove.
"(Centre) Scotty Clark had the best game I've seen so far and Jai Cooper had the ball on a string," Potter said.
The Bombers stormed home to record the 11.10-76 - 8.6-54 triumph.
