It's finals time for Capricornia
A GLADSTONE flood of red, white, black and a tinge of green will hit Rockhampton tomorrow, where the AFL Capricornia grand finals are held.
BITS Saints reserves take on Brothers and Saints reserves coach Lucas Hall has a few players back from injury, including Jamie Greenwood and Adrian Forster.
Hall said Brothers weren’t the best skilled side, but their intensity and team work made them very competitive.
“We’ll need to match them in intensity and if we do that our skill level should get us through,” Hall said.
“I think it’ll come down to who settles first and controls the footy better.”
Gladstone Mudcrabs face off against Yeppoon Swans, the team they beat by a point in the second semi-final.
Under-17s caoch Jason Chirgwin was confident his players would rise to the challenge.
“It’s a big stepping stone for them and they’re pretty keen to win,” he said.
“Grand finals are memories and history making, and when they look back in 20 years’ time, they’ll remember it.”
In the under-13s, BITS and Riggs Sheetmetal Mudcrabs meet. Muddies coach Ben Dempsey said his players were very keen to get to play.
“We’ll be going in with a few different tactics to try to stop the stronger parts of BITS’ game,” Dempsey said.
“The two sides are evenly matched and we go in with confident as we do every match.”
BITS coach Dan Tybell said he told his players they should be proud of making the grand final and to enjoy the atmosphere.
