VIDEO: Old Boys to help Capras reconnect
THE Rockhampton Leagues Club CQ Capras maybe out of the Intrust Super Cup finals race, but Lionel Harbin says there is still plenty to play for at Browne Park this weekend.
The Capras host the Souths Logan Magpies on Saturday night in their final home game of the season.
"This occasion should lift the boys, being our last home game, the local grand finals and potentially Guy Williams's last run at home," Harbin said.
"For a guy who has represented this club as well as he has, I can't think of a better way than sending him out as a winner.
"He (Williams) epitomises what this club is about. He's just a true professional. If we had every player like Guy Williams we wouldn't be in the position we are at the moment.
"It's not just on the field; it's off the field as well. He's a great leader and just gives everything 100%."
This weekend will also be the club's traditional 'Old Boys Day' when the past players are honoured at the game.
Harbin said the team had plenty of motivation to win and owed it to their fans.
"It's always good to see all the players from the past turn up and get behind us," he said.
"You never want to let them down because they played with plenty of pride when they were at the club."
Slipping up against lowly opposition has been a point of concern for the Capras this season with the CQ side going down 20-16 to Tweed last weekend.
"We had guys in tears in that dressing room, that's how much the game meant to them," Harbin said.
"But we will go into this weekend with the same 18.
"If we can sustain the foundation that we built last week for 80 minutes I think we can come away we the win."
Marco Delapena remains in doubt after being placed on report for his part in an ugly lifting tackle.
"It didn't really look good when we watched it live, but we will fight it if we have to," Harbin said.
"If is placed on suspension we have Dan Randall who can move into centre for us."
Harbin has recalled the services of Ian Webster as an 80-minute hooker after a standout performance against Tweed in Bundaberg.
"Webby played really well and kept that middle nice and tidy," he said.
"We will be looking for that again this weekend."
Kick-off Saturday night is at 7.30pm.
