bay team focuses on all-out attack

[singlepic id=283 float=right] ALL-OUT attack will be the directive from Byron Bay coach Peter Ware when the unbeaten Rams host major premiers Goonellabah at 3pm.

The Bay sits on top of the ladder after winning all three games so far, with their attacking style already yielding 15 goals.

"We don't play with a focus on strikers, we like to give everybody in the side a chance to push forward and score," Ware said. "We'll attack them down the flanks, we'll attack them down the middle, we'll attack from everywhere."

The policy is paying dividends, with seven of their 10 field players already finding the net and Tom Ruhl and Aaron Richter Steers racking up four goals each.

Ware will add pacey winger Tim Knight to the line-up that downed minor premiers Richmond Rovers 4-3. The Hornets will be looking to bounce back after a 2-0 loss to Rovers in their last game, with coach Mark Ambler quietly confident they can defuse the Rams' explosive attack.

"We respect Byron, they have the points on the board so far, but we'll employ the appropriate tactics to respond to their game," he said. "We're familiar with how they've played the last few years and we don't think it'll be any different this time round."
