The Grasshoppers will have another crack at a top four side this weekend when they travel to take on fourth-placed Harcourt. Navarre has lost two of its three games this season to top four teams, a record coach Kyle Hendy hopes to break.

“Hopefully we can put up a good fight. Starting well will be crucial,” he said.

“Everyone will have to perform if we are to win, we can’t just rely on our top five or six players to do the job.”

Navarre goes into the game with great form, having claimed three victories in its previous three outings.

Hendy said he believes the confidence of his side will play a big part in the match.

“It will be a lot different to the first few rounds where we were finding our feet a bit,” he said.

“The boys have now played together a fair bit and are a lot more comfortable and familiar with each other.”

Victory could see Navarre move into the top four for the first time this season.
