IT IS business as usual for the Dalby Diehards this weekend, as the TRL A Grade premiership enters round five.

The Diehards make the long trip out to Goondiwindi on Sunday afternoon in search of their fourth win of the season.

A win this weekend would continue the Diehards undefeated start to the year.

On paper this game appears to be a mismatch with Goondiwindi struggling at the bottom of the table, conceding on average 53 points per game.

The Diehards boast the best defence in the competition and are averaging over 38 points per game.

However, Diehards coach Kerry Carmichael refuses

to be complacent this weekend.

"We are in this 11 team competition, and it is the type of comp where if you are not on your game you won't win,” Carmichael said.

"I will be telling my blokes that Goondiwindi played Highfields who are a premiership threat, and came within two minutes of beating them.”

Carmichael said his focus at training this week will be to continue improving his team's strong defence.

"There is always things to work on at training,” he said.

"We still need to be disciplined in defence. It is our strong point and we need to make it stronger.”
