Vänersborg V Karlstad Preview

Tomorrow Karlstad travel to Vänersborg hoping to make it back to back victories in this season’s Division 1 West league. Head coach Eamonn has been fortunate to have another close full squad travelling, with the only casualty from the previous weekend’s victory being outside centre Anton Johansson with a knee injury.

In the pack there is a reshuffle with Björn Olaf Larsson moving back to his familiar tighthead prop position and Johan Tervell is back in the 2nd row after a late withdrawal the previous week. In the backs, Robin Klemets has replaced the injured Johansson at outside centre. A strong bench sees the return of Owen Thomas from an ankle injury who will be itching to get on and get some game time.

 
Karlstad will know that it will be an improved Vänersborg team and performance for this fixture as their back line attacking game didn’t get any chance to run last week thanks to some very strong Karlstad defence. No.8 Berry Grande, who scored an early Karlstad try last week has said that: “it is a now or never situation for us as we really need to win an away game”
 
He added that
“it is not the size of the wolf that fights, but the size of the heart in the wolf that matters most” - Berry Gande
