Round 7 'Gone Country'

Looking to bounce back from their first defeat in 2020, Norths head to Camden Rugby Park, the home of the Rams for Round 7 with the Two Blues.

Thanks to the Camden Rugby community who have been very accommodating throughout the season with a trial venue in March and now a home venue for this mid-season match.

The early season wins have Norths in 6th position 1 point off 4th place and eager to get back to winning ways on Saturday and defend the Rod Phelps Cup.

Meanwhile, Two Blues have found it tough going in the first half of this season, yet to record a win despite encouraging signs in their match with Randwick (0-0 at half time) and pushing Souths for 70 minutes before going down. No doubt well rested off the bye and looking for their first scalp of 2020.

A host of changes coming from the selection table in the front row. German Haeffeli (Prop), Gary Bautz (Hooker) and Dewald Dekker (Prop) will pack down in an all-new look front row. Looking to match the size and strength of some of the Two Blues forward pack

Regular captain Nick Palmer remains sidelined for another week while the remainder of the forward pack is unchanged. With the potential for recently capped Waratah Patrick Tafa to return to the club via the bench.

The backline too remains unchanged, as Cameron Clark will be added to the reserves bench.

In's: German Haeffeli, Gary Bautz, Dewald Dekker
Out: Jack Brewer, James Margan, Jayden Lynch
