FOLLOWING their disappointing result in the first round of the Lower Mid North Coast Rugby Union competition, the Old Bar Clams are looking to improve and try and bag their first win of the season against the Myall Coast Mudcrabs at Tea Gardens on Saturday.

Captain-coach Chad Lambert said his side have moved on from their 64 point loss and despite losing a few of their players from last week, he remains confident that his team can get a better result this weekend.

"We've been training well all week and I think we can improve on last week's result," Chad said.

The Clams have been working on retaining possession, as he said the game ran away from them the week previous because of too many turnovers.

"Pretty much the whole second half we were defending," he said.

"And you can't win games without the ball."

Old Bar's been working on their set piece, as well as work at the breakdown.

Chad's expecting a big game from his number ten Dylan Gould, who played his first game for the Clams last weekend at fullback.

"He's a very good player and I'm expecting big things from him this week."

Flanker Brayden Costa also returns to the team this weekend and Lambert expects him to push for starting selection for the coming weeks.
