Josh Price caught up with Reds coach Matt Collett ahead of the second round...
The Reds have had a troubled start to the year with only two wins to date.
However narrow results toward the end of round 1 has coach Matt Collett optimistic about his team’s fortunes in what will be a competitive division 2.
“A few key injuries crept in, some guys went away and exams have made it tough.” Matt says.
The team has a few tough road trips to the Hutt Valley in the next round but believe that doing well there could help catapult them into the semis with the ultimate goal of winning division 2.
Jordan Wilson the team’s captain and current top try scorer with four will be the key player for the reds moving forward, with his good form continuing on from a tough 2013 campaign.
Matt in his rookie year as coach has said that Jack Walsh’s 40m drop kick is still the most surprising thing he has had to deal with.
The Reds play Paremata-Plimmerton at Ngati Toa this Saturday at 1.15pm (Updated Friday)
