The match-up between the TAFE NSW Polecats and Macquarie University is always curious contest. Last year the Polecats were favourites to take out the 2nd grade cup only to falter to a slick and quick Macquarie University. The one thing Macquarie do have is pace and last year they used it to run around the Polecats pack. The second placed Polecats cannot afford to be complacent against a winless Macquarie. Coach Dennis Curry reminded the players at training of last year’s defeat at the hand of the Mac Warriors. If the TAFE NSW Polecats are to be contenders for the title this year, they will need to use the TAFE NSW slogan of “Be ambitious” in 2019, and do the job on Saturday.
The Polecats are coming off a tough loss to UTS where they suffered some injuries. It will important this week to showcase the depth of the Polecats in 2019.
This week we return to Polecats stadium at Kellyville. Earlier in the week the media reported that in the coming years the Parramatta Eels will make Kellyville their home training base. This news means that Polecats stadium at Kellyville, will actually be a real stadium for the first time. Senior Polecats committee member Bob Lennox has already started negotiations to secure the Polecats tenure at the hallowed turf of Kellyville.
This Saturday the Polecats will once again be opening their famous ‘POLECanTeen’. For the first time they will also be using a 360 camera to take some photos courtesy of TAFE NSW. So if you’re out voting in the federal election, come down afterwards for a BBQ at Kellyville and watch some footy.
