Miriam Vale top fancy in final
THE NDRL final will be played at Gary Larson Oval this weekend between minor premier Miriam Vale and defending premier Gin Gin.
Miriam Vale has been the pace setter all season and, with the final being played at its home ground, will start as hot favourite.
Big matches usually see the quality players rise to the occasion and Ryan Walker, from Miriam Vale, covers all the bases. He should help the Vale add to its imposing finals record.
This week’s BRL fixtures are the last before the finals begin.
The combatants in the top four will be Hervey Bay, Isis, Easts and Brothers.
Depending on results the first-placed team could drop to fourth, which is an indication of the close competition.
The NRL competition is getting closer to the finals and, as this happens, the stakes get higher.
