Cam Greenhalgh's Western Rams have brought a lot to the table in 2020. Effort? Yep. Enthusiasm? You bet. Courage? Like you've never seen before. But what the men in green haven't enjoyed throughout the inaugural Presidents Cup campaign is an experienced playing roster. Don't get it twisted, though. Harry Siejka and Jackson Brien have played a stack of meaningful football in their years, the former enjoying runs in both the NRL and Super League, but there just hasn't been enough veteran hands on deck throughout Western's 0-6 start to the campaign. Well, that's all about to change. Greenhalgh announced on Monday Orange Hawks captain-coach Willie Heta as well as Bathurst St Pat's powerhouse Zac Merritt are set to join the Rams for their round seven clash with North Sydney. "These young blokes in our side are doing their best but they just need a few older heads," Greenhalgh said, Merritt a member of the Forbes side Greenhalgh coached to a Group 11 premiership in 2016. "Heta and Merritt will come into the side ... just to name a couple. "Heta's going to slot straight into the halves with Harry (Siejka) and will hopefully take a little bit of heat off him. "Nic Tilburg played well on the weekend and he'll get his shot again." The young half experienced a 24-6 loss to Wentworthville Magpies at Mudgee's Glen Willow Sporting Complex last Saturday and despite the double-digit deficit, the coach was happy with the resilience his side displayed. "It was a tight contest for ages," he said. "It was back and forth for a little bit but we just put too much pressure on ourselves to score points. "We came up short a few times and then had some lapses in defence and they scored a few late tries." It's been a challenge run for the Rams but player who's had it as tough on the field as anyone is Harry Siejka as the 28-year-old's played alongside multiple different halves partners so far, a chore that Greenhalgh thinks the veteran has handled tremendously. "He's pretty easy going and has been really good with it all," he said. "He was disappointed with his efforts on the weekend but that's the honesty that he brings to the side... he takes a loss as hard as anyone." Willie Heta is set to bring some stability to what's been a crazy six weeks of combinations as Mitch Burke, Brendan Hands and Nic Tilburg have all played in the number six jumper. As for Merritt, he'll give the Betts brothers a bit of support up front as the duo have been heavy battling at prop for the last fortnight, competing against players some 20 kilograms heavier than them.
