Regardless of the outcomes on Grand Final Day, It has been a great 2016 for the Rovers and all efforts by players, officials, their families and their supporters must be applauded.

We wish all participants a well contested Grand Final that is played fairly and without any major injuries to players from any participating side.

Commiserations are with the Rovers Fourths Football team and the B Grade Netball team today but they should be proud of the fact they made it all the way to the Preliminary Final and were one of the top 4 sides of 2016.

Thoughts

There’s no certainties this week, It is the Preliminary Final and the sides haven’t played each other for quite some time so past dominance by any of the teams is now out the window.

Everything we’ve said over the last couple of weeks still applies, A team has to stay composed, A team has to work like a machine and each player must believe they can play their part in the game.

We hope that this weekends matches are played fairly, competitively and above all safely with no injuries to any side.

Rovers Talk will be back on Sunday with all the results and more.
