Eddies dealing with transition from other code

IT IS only two weeks since St Edmund's College wound up its Associated Independent Colleges rugby union campaign.

Which is why the expectations of how they'll go in the Confraternity rugby league carnival is tempered.

St Edmund's has teams in the top two divisions.

"We've also been hampered by the loss of a couple of major injuries and representative honours," teams' manager David Mills said.

Andrew Richardson and Josh Schweitzer will represent Queensland schoolboys at national rugby union titles so will miss confraternity.

"It provides opportunities to other players to step in and show what they can do," Mills said.

"But being realistic, given the short preparation and injuries, we'll look to get in and give it a good dig.

"With 20 minute halves anything can happen.

"The transition form union to league needs a very big focus on the defensive side.

"Attack pretty well looks after itself."
