Pre-Season Preview: Alpha Sport Grand Finals

Pool A Grand Final
Mt Gravatt vs. Labrador
3:30pm, Oval 1 Leyshon Park

Both teams will be near full strength for their last hit out before round 1 in two weeks time.

Labrador will deservingly go in as favorites, but if we have learnt anything from the last two weeks, it’s don’t underestimate Mt Gravatt.

The Vultures are going to look to get the ball out wide and run, which won’t upset Labrador too much either, but if they get control of the centre and use their spine it will be lights out for Mt Gravatt.


Pool B Grand Final
Mayne vs. Sandgate
1:00pm, Oval 1, Leyshon Park

Winning ugly is still winning, and that’s exactly what Sandgate did last week.

Despite having their backs against the wall for the majority of the game, they found a way to scrap and claw home, and that’s important.

They can’t afford to be off their game this week against the QFA juggernaut that is Mayne, who look like they will be as strong as ever in 2016.

This one will be a nice, contested battle in the middle.


Pool C Grand Final
Robina vs. Aspley
10:30am, Oval 1, Leyshon Park

Robina and Aspley have both put disappointing 2015 campaigns behind them, playing some fantastic footy this pre-season.

Aspley have been the surprise package of the Alpha Sport Pre-Season Cup; their kids have catapulted them into the QFA North mix.

Robina have had to work a lot harder for their wins, but that should hold them in good shape if this is tight late in the fourth.


Pool D Grand Final
South East Suns vs. Kedron
2:50pm, Oval 2, Leyshon Park

Are we getting a September preview in the middle of March? Only time will tell, but don’t be surprised to see these two teams contending late in the year.

Kedron have taken to their promotion back into the QAFA like a duck to water; now comes the big test.

The South East Suns, after finishing runners up last year, are favorites to go one better this year.

There has been a lot of hype around both these sides so far this year; tomorrow we will get to see if it’s all true.
