MAKE a tackle, have a carry and just have some fun.
That will be the message from Port City Breakers coach Dan Kemp ahead of their final pre-season trial before the Group 3 rugby league season kicks off.
The Breakers will travel north to Yamba and a hit-out against Lower Clarence, while Port Macquarie Sharks' trial with Wingham has been called off.
The Tigers sprayed the Wingham Sporting Complex with weed killer earlier in the week, making the surface unplayable.
Kemp said it would be the first match for the Breakers since their preliminary semi-final defeat at the hands of Macleay Valley in August 2019.
"It's about giving everyone in the club a game of footy," he said.
"At the end of the day it's a trial and the team will change 40 times so it will be about letting blokes make a tackle and have a carry.
"Go out there and have some fun boys."
A few of the new faces will get their first chance in club colours with winger Pat Cook, halfback Jake McNamara and front-rowers Viliame Tobesawa and Matt Fieldsend all to receive game time.
"We had two trials locked in, but with wet weather things change so we're fortunate to still be able to have this one," Kemp said.
