League of dreams for Intercity knock-out finals
RUGBY LEAGUE: Tannum Sands Seagals and Wallabys women's rugby league teams will play in this weekend's Inter City Women's competition knock-out preliminary final.
Both teams are keen to make it through to next weekend's prestigious grand final against Brothers in Rockhampton.
Seagals coach Will Jamieson looked forward to the contest between the two evenly matched teams.
"We are always confident any game we go into but need to focus on our own game," Jamieson said.
"The players had a good win against Emu Park last weekend to come back from the Brothers loss the previous weekend."
In the first round of semi-finals, Seagals lost to Rockhampton Brothers 14-18 but bounced back to win against Emu Park women 22-16.
"Ball control wins games of football and completing the set of six plays as well," Jamieson said.
"The captain, Vassa Hunter, leads by example at five-eighth and Krystal Sulter is another player to have a good game."
Wallabys coach Dan Burns said the players were looking forward to the game and to have some fun and enjoy the moment.
"The players are ready as they ever will be and the main focus will be to go out and have some fun and enjoy themselves because it's a great time of year to play football," Burns said.
Wallabys' last-round semi-final resulted in a 40-0 loss at the hands of Rockhampton Brothers and the Gladstone team is keen to make amends for the grand final missed opportunity.
"This year has been a learning and growing process for the players throughout the season," Burns said.
Seagals captain Hunter was eager to get started with the game and play a good game of football against a quality opponent.
"It's just the toughness of the game I enjoy and playing Wallabys makes us play our best football," she said.
"The games have always been tight against Wallabys and this one will be no different."
Wallabys second-rower Hollie Bimrose said neither team was the favourite as they were both evenly matched.
"We've had highs and lows during the season and most of them highs when the team wins," Bimrose said.
"Our coach has encouraged a very family-orientated squad and the dynamics of the team are really great."
The match will be played at Wallabys home ground, Albion Park, Tranberg St, and will kick off at 2.30pm.
The winner of the hotly contested match will play Rockhampton Brothers women at Browne Park at 12.20pm on September 1.
