Sea­hawks pack­ing field in grand fi­nal clashes

The Weekend Post - - News -

A MOD­ERN day cor­ro­boree will be cen­tred on Bar­low Park to­day as 2000 Yarrabah rugby league fans make their way to the CDRL grand fi­nal day.

The Sea­hawks have three grades – sec­ond di­vi­sion, re­serve grade and A-grade – in the four fi­nals, but club president Lu­cre­sia Wil­lett said there was no risk of fans los­ing their voice ahead of the main game.

It’s the first time Yarrabah has qual­i­fied for the A-grade grand fi­nal in their 17-year his- tory, but will not have it easy against an In­n­is­fail side that has lost just one game all year.

“The en­tire town will be in Cairns, ex­cept the old peo­ple,” Sea­hawks president Lu­cre­sia Wil­lett said.

“We’ve had a core group of loyal sup­port­ers, but with the hype in the com­mu­nity at the mo­ment, ev­ery­body wants to do this and that and be at Bar­low Park.”

She said, while the re­turn of for­mer North­ern Pride star Hezron Murgha to Yarrabah A-grade had lifted ev­ery­one, every team had strong lead­er­ship within to reach the last day of the sea­son.

The A-grade grand fi­nal be­tween Yarrabah and In­n­is­fail Brothers kicks off at 6.30pm.
