The Parkes Spacemen finish the last of their three-game streak at home this weekend hosting the Narromine Jets.

Parkes have made a promising start to the season, although it was obvious in the playing group that there was great disappointment in the 31-24 loss to the fancied Nyngan Tigers at home last Sunday.

League Tag kicks off with the high-flying Spacecats.

The girls will be looking to improve their combinations against the Jets this week, and lift their intensity in a number of facets.

The Parkes juniors had an off-day last week, which still resulted in a win.

The Parkes reserve grade side struggled in a number of aspects last week against Nyngan, however the team is a very young one, that will hopefully learn and rebound from such contests.

Finally, first grade should see a very willing contest, with the Chad Porter-led Spacemen looking to rebound to the winning circles at home.

Star rake Benjamin John played strongly, while the youthful backline contributed well- thanks to great contributions from Ben Davis and Jacob Smede.

The Jets will roll out a big forward pack and will try to bash the Parkes side off the paddock, before releasing their elusive backline.

Gates open at 10am with the Tag kick off at 11am.
