THE longer the season, the more well-oiled Old Collegians will become.

That’s the forecast of Warriors coach Josh Reichman after his men put perennial battler Russells Creek to the sword on Saturday.

Reichman’s side booted 10.12 (72) to 2.15 (17) to overcome the challenge of a wind-swept Davidson Oval.

While he was satisfied with the performance, the third-year coach said the Warriors could improve dramatically as the season wore on.

"We haven’t yet had that perfect team balance. We’ve had some new recruits come in and we’ve been leaning on each other,” he said.

“I think we’ll get better as we settle. We’ll be better across the four quarters as well.”

Reichman said Collegians was working on improving its scoring opportunities after booting several behinds in its Good Friday triumph over Merrivale.

Old Collegians faces Kolora-Noorat in a grand final rematch on Saturday.
