Friday QFA Finals Forecast

QFA Division 2

Kenmore vs. Coomera

The Bears are set to take on the Magpies in a fourth versus fifth battle on Saturday, when both teams meet with their season on the line. The winner will head through to a place in the semi finals, while the other side will be finishing up their season.

Each of these teams has had a win against the other, setting this one up as a difficult one to judge. Coomera gained the upper hand most recently, in a close one, taking out the contest by 11 points as Brady Riesenweber bagged five for the Magpies. Earlier in the season though, in round, it was the Bears taking the honours by 39 points, helped along by six snags each to Timothy Plummer and Anthony Corrie.

From the coaches:

Kenmore’s Anthony Corrie – “It’s more about executing those big things like your ball movement and structure around stoppages.”

“Just sticking to structures and making sure that we’re executing them properly.”

Coomera’s Jason Chantler – “The key for us will be our run. If we’re prepared to run, having young legs around the football, we’re prepared to support each other with our run (and) I think that’s the key for our success.”

 

Aspley Hornets vs. Robina

In this week’s second division two final, there’s a lot at stake for each outfit, but it’s also about who’s got the most forward fifty firepower. All year Robina Roo Trent McIntyre has put together big bags of goals (91 total), but so has Hornet Lachlan Harris (89 total); leaving the question open ahead of the final, as to who can get the job done when it really matters. Harris has the edge on form, finishing with 10 in his last outing in round 18 against Coolangatta.

From the coaches:

Aspley’s Brent Evans – “With a final anything can happen, so we’re preparing the best we can and obviously we’ve gotto perform on the day, that’s the key.”

“We’re not at all going to take them lightly.”

Robina’s David Sloan – “I think Aspley are no doubt more talented than us, but the will and the want should outdo talent and skill. So if we’ve got greater will and want we’ll be in the game.”

 

QFA Division 3

Victoria Point vs. Carrara

QFA division three’s Victoria Point Sharks had stormed through the season undefeated until the final round last weekend, when they met the Carrara Saints. It’s now finals time and the Sharks will get a chance for redemption, while the Saints will aim to do the double when they meet again this week in the semis.

As fate would have it, both club’s reserves sides will also meet in the finals, after strong seasons, setting up a delightful collection of div 3 double headers to attend on Saturday.

From the coaches:

Victoria Point’s Rod Brown – “I think what’s gotten us over the line all year is our backline, which has virtually been unchanged all year. So I think that’s been the backbone.”

Carrara’s Benjamin Roberts – “You want to play your own brand of footy, but then again, let’s not kid ourselves. They were a good team, they were pretty much undefeated, so we’ve got to put some things in place to stop a couple of individuals.”
