"I haven't seen their application but they have the best systems and the capacity to deliver," Taylor said.

The Jets were one of the other clubs to signal their interest, while Football Bundaberg were believed to be the other two parties from our region.

Taylor said the Jets passed a resolution to support The Waves' bid.

"We'll encourage our members to trial for the side if its successful," Taylor said.
