IT MIGHT be the weekend of love, but the Rocky Roller Derby girls won't be showing any affection to rivals Airlie Beach Trash Bags.

The Rocky derby dolls have a date with the Trash Bags at the Rockhampton YWCA in their annual Valentine's "Brawlintine's Day" bout tomorrow night.

Rocky Roller Derby competitor Lana "Stealth Bomb Her" Gray said her team was primed to deliver a beating to the Trash Bags.

"I don't think there will be any love on the track but maybe after at the after party," Gray said.

"For the first jam everyone's always nervous and psyched up but after the first round everyone is keen to just get out there and hit something.

"We have been training hard, all the girls have been turning up which has been really good, everyone has been putting in a lot of effort for training, getting their sleep in, eating well and keeping hydrated."

Gray said while Rocky hadn't faced the Trashbags before, she was confident her troops would race rings around them.

"We haven't actually played against them yet but we have played with them," she said.

"It will be good and we'll find out on the night what our strengths and weaknesses are.

"I think our jammers Skatt-Her Brains and Brawl-her will do a really good job.

"And I can't forget our blockers Rink Bitz and Stackk the Rip-her who always do well."

Roller Derby action will get underway at YWCA from 6pm.

Spectators are reminded tickets are available on the door and the event is cash only.
