KENDALL Blues captain Beau Kettle is happy his team have registered two-straight wins to open the Hastings League season, but he’s not getting carried away.

He knows there is still a lot of room for improvement despite scoring 82 points and conceding just 16.

They belted Laurieton 52-12 in the opening round before easing past the Boardriders 30-4 last week.

“Dropped ball is a major concern,” he said.

“We were pretty good against Laurieton and went away from our game plan against the Boardriders. I think we went into that game thinking we were a bit better than we were.”

The centre pairing of Tamati Wigman and Jahbe Latham have been providing plenty of headaches for opponents.

Kettle acknowledged they needed to give them more ball.

“When we get the ball to the edges we look really good because we have good quality backs out there,” Kettle said.

The Blues travel to Long Flat this weekend.

Long Flat will look to bounce back from a 28-22 loss to Laurieton.

“They were struggling to put a side together at the start of the season so it’s good to see they got their numbers,” the Blues skipper said.

He was expecting a tough battle in the forwards.

“We can’t go in too complacent, but we’ve trained really well,” he said.

In other games this weekend, Boardriders tackle South West Rocks, Beechwood take on Lower Macleay and Comboyne host Laurieton.

Matches kick off at 2.30pm.
