Consistent Phoenix Power eager to build on successful legacy

CREATING a dynasty in sport is a hard task to accomplish, and not many come to mind.

There are teams like the long-running heavyweights of the NRL, Melbourne Storm, and AFL, Geelong Cats, but even so they have not won three titles in a row or seen four grand finals in a row.

Gladstone Phoenix Power has achieved both of those feats. Now they are looking to add to the dynasty that has been created.

"It is absolutely our intention to come back with a championship, we will worry about Friday first but that is the goal," Power captain Jessica Bibby said.

Over the years, the Power have seen players come and go, as well as rival teams rising and dropping off the list of ful- on contenders.

The latest battle of the heavyweights with Mackay looms large as the possible grand final again this year.

While the Power has had such success over the years, Bibby is still inclined to pick the current squad as the best that she has led in Gladstone.

"It is a testament to the group we have got we have had a lot of adversity and had to shuffle around," she said.

"We are going to put ourselves in a position to win."
