Ju­niors fly­ing into fi­nals

Gatton Star - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: Af­ter their se­nior Hawks fell short of vic­tory last week­end, two Ju­nior teams are hop­ing to se­cure wins at their grand fi­nals this week­end.

“We’ve got our Un­der 13/14 De­vel­op­ment Cup side play­ing in the grand fi­nal, and also our Un­der 17 Girls,” Ju­nior Hawks Pres­i­dent Shayne Brook­ing said.

“The 13/14 DC side made it through to the grand fi­nals a few years ago and they also made the semi-fi­nals last year.”

He said this was the first year that Toowoomba Rugby League had held a girl’s com­pe­ti­tion, mak­ing this a fan­tas­tic sea­son for the un­der-17’s team, who qual­i­fied first for the fi­nals sea­son.

“Both sides won the ma­jor semi-fi­nals, and were first to qual­ify for the grand fi­nal,” Mr Brook­ing said.

“Con­fi­dence is high for both sides, es­pe­cially the girl’s side. We’ve got a re­ally strong un­der-17’s team.”

He said he was hop­ing for a strong show­ing from spec­ta­tors to sup­port the teams’ achieve­ments.

“Hope­fully we’ll have a big crowd of sup­port­ers up there, there was a big crowd up watch­ing the se­nior game, so hope­fully we get sim­i­lar num­bers for the ju­niors.”

The Toowoomba Ju­nior Rugby League Grand Fi­nals will take place at Clive Berghofer Sta­dium, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 14.
