Roy Girls ready to rumble


Freshened up from the timely final round bye, the Fitzroy-ACU Reserves Women will head into their first ever finals series brimming with confidence.

The final round results meant Saturdays opponent Caulfield Grammarians finished just 2.98 per cent ahead and as the third-placed side choose the venue.

Semi Final 1 of the Premier Womens Reserves competition will be played at Glenhuntly Oval at 11.20am on Saturday. With the senior and reserves mens teams having the bye this weekend, there should be a big Fitzroy contingent along to check out the action.

The Fields are a tough team to match at their large, sloping ground but the Roy Girls have done it before.

In their first meeting at Ramsden Street back in April, Caufield was a comfortable winner. By the time the teams met again in June, Fitzroy-ACU won by over four goals….at Glenhuntly Oval.

This is a team which has improved enormously over the course of this first season with coach Simon Jackson and there is nothing to fear in this final.

In many ways its business as usual and they should continue to play the way theyve been playing,Simon said. But it is a final, so we know the tempo lifts and the game goes up a notch because there is more at stake. We really need to be switched on right from the start.

The team has been training with good energy which we can take into the game.

Weve talked about the fact that not everyone gets these opportunities finals dont happen often so we need to be ready and make the most of the opportunity,Simon said.

Its all or nothing. Go Roy Girls.
