Waves in AFL driving seat

THERE is not much to play for this weekend considering Across The Waves sewed up the minor premiership weeks ago.

With finals next week the Bundaberg side will be hoping to emerge from the game without injury and with a clear mind on qualifying for the decider.

They should pole-axe the Maryborough Bears, and they probably will, but it is worth mentioning that a win to the Bears and a loss to Bay Power would find the struggling side back in the finals for the first time since 2003.

The Maryborough Bears' line-up has fluctuated in recent weeks depending on the location of their game.

This week they travel to Frank Coulthard Oval, but it will not matter who fronts up, Waves should have their measure.

The return of North Queensland midfielder Jareb Cowan, and the emergence of Brendan Prossliner and Curtis Janke as valuable players has gone a long way to positioning them at the top of the table.

That trio, along with the usual experienced bunch, will be keen to manoeuvre past Bears and set course for another flag.

The under-15s have a centre bounce at 9.45am tomorrow at Waves' home ground to get things started.
