Triple touch test looming for keen player

TOUCH football player Chelsea Baker will play three grand final matches this weekend.

Baker will play for the Steelers in three divisions - Women's 1st Division, Mixed 1st Division and the Masters competition.

But the big schedule on Saturday doesn't have her nervous.

She is confident her teams can win each of the grand finals after winning their way straight through in the major semi-finals.

It is the aftermath that Baker is worried about.

"I will be sore after it is all over I think," she said.

A lot of the players in the Gladstone Touch Association will be in the same scenario following semi-finals last night.

The long season and strength of the competition will have all players prepared for the battering their bodies will take in the fast matches.

They will be playing against elite players, who have run them ragged for 17 weeks.

"We even have a current Australian player and Queensland players as well as a host of CQ representatives," said Baker, who is also secretary of the association.

"It has been great. We have a lot of juniors coming through and senior players going well."

The matches will begin at 4pm on Saturday at Briffney Creek Fields.
