Win boosts waves
A CONFIDENCE-boosting 30-16 defeat of Easts last week has Across The Waves in a winning frame of mind.
They will need all that momentum to continue though, up against League 11s minor premiers Isis, who destroyed them at the Furnace in their last meeting.
“That won't be in the front of their minds I don't think,” co-coach Rick Marschke said.
“It might be plaguing them a little bit, but the confidence they have after last week should cancel that out.”
Marschke, who has helped coach alongside Mark Craswell and League 11 player Robbie McKeown, will not be at Salter Oval on Sunday because of other sporting commitments.
His kids will be playing touch football in Maryborough, but Marschke said his troops would be fine without him.
“They've been going great and if we play like we did last week we'll be in with a show,” he said.
“Holding possession in the big moments will be crucial, that'll be the difference.”
After watching the video of their win last week, Waves know exactly what worked and what didn't against Easts.
Wests under-18 team will play Hervey Bay in the first elimination final of the day.
The side has been together for years and a final's berth would mean two out of three seniors sides have made the decider this season.
Games start at 1pm on Sunday at Salter Oval.
