FORSTER-Tuncurry will be wary of try scoring Manning Ratz centre Bryuwn Tisdell in tomorrow's Lower North Coast Rugby Union match of the day at Tuncurry.
The Dolphins have firmed as premiership favourites and are unbeaten this season. However, the Ratz came from behind to force a 25-25 draw in the first round and are emerging as the side most likely to challenge the Dolphins for premiership honours this season.
Tisdell, a strong running centre, mixed rugby league and rugby union commitments last year, but has concentrated on union this year.
He's been a regular try scorer and last week posted three against the Old Bar Clams.
However, the Forster defence will be far more formidable that anything the Clams could offer last Saturday. Forster skipper Mark Hagarty and Mid North Coast representative winger Jesse Logan will form the midfield combination for the Dolphins and will look to ensure Tisdell doesn't get too much latitude.
Forster will be fresh from the bye last weekend and a big and mobile pack will look to lay the platform for their backline, led by five-eighth Matt Nuku, who has been in peerless form again this season.
Four matches remain before the start of the semi-finals on August 10.
Manning Ratz will be favoured for the women's 10s game after showing some strong form in the past two games.
In other matches tomorrow Wauchope Thunder will host Old Bar while Wallamba and Gloucester will meet in the women's 10s game at Nabiac.
