Rovers' Premier League side will enter an untimely two-week hiatus as they won't be able to build on the momentum they created with their first round victory over the defending champions Taree United.
Rovers' victory over Taree was the only match to be completed in the first round of the Mid North Coast competition and the win gifted the side with plenty of confidence.
However, Rovers will now spend two weeks on the sidelines as they have a bye this Saturday and the competition takes a break the following week for a scheduled representative round.
While Rovers captain Ethan Dowling admits it's a shame the side can't attempt to string a few early wins together, he concedes there's a shining light to not having to play over the next fortnight.
"It's bad for us because we basically have to start all over again because we are having two weeks without a game," Dowling told the Argus.
"But it is a bit of a blessing in disguise because we would have been without a few of our main players over these next two games.
"It would have been nice to get a few wins under our belt but this is the draw and it is what it is."
Dowling said the importance of training at a high intensity is now increased and he will be pushing the boys to lift their tempo.
"We've been training hard the last month and we will need to keep it up and take it to the next level," he said.
Rovers will be represented by youngster Mitch Korn in the representative round.
Korn was selected in the 14-man Macquarie Stingers Big Bash squad to compete at the regional finals carnival at Armidale or Tamworth (depending on conditions) on Saturday October 26 and Sunday October 27.
Korn was instrumental in Rovers' first round victory as he opened the batting and scored an impressive 62 with the bat while his skills with the gloves as the team's wicketkeeper were also on show.
Dowling is hopeful the talented player will gain valuable experience at the representative carnival and return in form for the Rovers.
"Mitch is a good young talent and he should go well with the bat and go great with the gloves for the Mid North Coast side," Dowling said.
"Hopefully he can play well out there and bring that back to continue to play well for us."
Rovers built their round one victory on the back of the opening partnership of Korn and Jack Wakely, who was on his Premier League debut.
Wakely scored a solid 24 before Lachlan Dowling added 27 and Dowling recorded 21 to help Rovers reach figures of 8/176. Rovers' bowlers then proved lethal as they dismissed United for 131, despite Tom Burley scoring an unbeaten 69.
