Brothers ready for finals
THERE will be six sets of brothers wearing the blue and white when they take to the field in the junior rugby league finals in Stanthorpe tomorrow.
While none of the brothers play on the same team as each other they all said it was great to have their siblings watching on from the sidelines.
The under-16s are up against Goondiwindi and player Harry Lloyd said the team was keen for the win.
"I am looking forward to doing the town proud and brining home the trophy," he said.
Teammate Darcy Williamson said the game had a lot of meaning for the team.
"We have played in one grand final before in under-14s and we lost to the same team," he said.
U16 player Hadley Dearden said he was confident the boys would be able to grab the win.
Collegians U14 players are set for a tough match against the other Warwick team Eastern Suburbs.
Player Will Dearden said it would be a good physical game.
"Last year we lost the grand final by one point so we are hungry for the win," he said.
Sam Williamson plays for the U13s and said he was looking forward to a solid game against Goondiwindi.
"We have played in two grand finals and are yet to get a win," he said.
"But I think we will be able to come out on tip this year."
