Hurricanes coach Daniel Robinson reckons the next four weekends could “make or break” the Hunter men’s squad season as they host their next eight Australian Water Polo League fixtures.
From Saturday and Sunday, the Hurricanes will have double headers at home against the Balmain Tigers, Drummoyne Devils, Cronulla Sharks and Sydney University Lions.
It comes after opening their 2019 campaign with mixed results against the Queensland Thunder in Brisbane on the weekend.
“This could make or break our season,” Robinson said.
“This run at home is very important.”
Robinson said “everyone is available”, including Daniel Lawrence who scored four goals in Sunday’s win.
Australian representative James Clark is the goalkeeper for Balmain.
Both games this weekend will be at Lambton Pool.
The winless Hunter women’s team, who have Jolie Marsden and Jemma Caldwell making their club debuts, also play the Tigers twice at home in round two.
The back-to-back national outings start at 5:30pm on Saturday and 11:30am on Sunday.
