Wallabys' final confidence growing

By GREGOR MACTAGGARTmactaggartg@gladstoneobserver.com.au

CONFIDENCE is high within the Wallabys camp as they prepare for Saturday night's CQ Extended League reserve grade grand final against Fitzroy-Gracemere at Browne Park.

Coach Jamie Mitchell is busy counting down the sleeps until the decider and is expecting a full-fit team to take to the park.

'The boys have got through last week well and we have everyone ready to go,' Mitchell said.

Wallabys have played the Sharks three times this year, with Mitchell's team playing out a win, draw and loss in each of the matches.

'Both sides are pretty even and I am expecting the grand final to go right down to the wire,' he said.

Key playmaker Mick Ghee has been confirmed as fit for the decider, while the coach is hoping for big games out of Gary Barnsley and Ronny Boseun.

Mitchell believes the tightness within the playing group has been a key feature of Wallabys' success all season and pinpointed this as a key this weekend.

'All the boys are great mates and have played for each other week in, week out all year.

'This week will be no different and if we stick together then we are good enough to win it,' he said.

Mitchell also wanted to take the chance to thank his team manager Ian Retchford for his support all season.
