Sea­hawks ea­ger to hike to glory for fans

The Weekend Post - - Sport - JA­COB GRAMS ja­[email protected]

YARRABAH play­ers are hope­ful a spot of hiking is a metaphor for what’s to come in the CDRL fi­nals start­ing this week­end.

The A-grade squad got to­gether for the team-build­ing ex­er­cise dur­ing the week and cap­tain Milton Mossman said it was a re­minder of who they were do­ing it for – their loyal fans who are set to leave Yarrabah a ghost town by the time they take on Ma­reeba to­mor­row.

Mossman said they’d had their fun dur­ing the week and the sea­son, but now it was time for the re­freshed side to make the most of their fi­nals op­por­tu­nity.

“We’ve trained re­ally well all week and the boys are re­ally look­ing for­ward to get­ting on the field again,” he said.

“It has been a while so for a cou­ple of peo­ple it will be their first A-grade semi but we’ve got good lead­ers in our team ... and I’m pretty con­fi­dent we can get a win.”

The Sea­hawks, who also have their re­serve grade side in ac­tion today, are only miss­ing Dale Am­brym from their Agrade line-up due to in­jury.

Joey Burchell is set to line up for Ma­reeba to­mor­row de­spite an eye socket in­jury last week.

Gla­di­a­tors coach Tye Inge­brigt­sen will put his side through their paces today after a light train­ing week and said he was con­fi­dent his “tight group” would be up to the test against Yarrabah.
