Yeppoon take on Brothers

THE Yeppoon Seagulls are quietly confident they have returned to form just in the nick of time for today's CQ Extended League under-19s grand final showdown with Rockhampton Brothers at Browne Park.

After an early exit in the Rockhampton Rugby League finals series, the Extended League minor premiers were the first team through to the decider after a 24-12 win over Rockhampton Brothers.

The Brethren have since disposed of CQU Norths 32-20 in Gladstone last weekend to set-up a grand final re-match.

Yeppoon coach Tony Frisby said his players were determined to finish a season of dominance on a high.

"Grand finals are all about attitude and the team that turns up to play will win,'' Frisby said.

In the reserve grade decider, the Fitzroy-Gracemere Sharks are looking to avenge their nailbiting Rockhampton Rugby League grand final loss when they tackle Wallabys.

Sharks coach David Doyle is confident that his side can do that job, despite 18-year-old centre Mitchel Smith away on touch football duties.

Returning for the Sharks will be experienced haflback Darren Mann.
