A LOT of the players set to run out for Orange Emus in tomorrow’s third grade decider have enjoyed plenty of grand final glory with the club in years gone by.
And if George Last has anything to do with it, that success will continue in 2013.
“I suppose, what I’ve been saying to the boys over the last couple of weeks, it doesn’t matter whether it’s first grade, third grade or colts, grand finals don’t come around very often and it’s important to make the most of it,” the coach said.
“Everyone’s on deck. There’s no injury concerns.”
Emus will tackle the Dubbo Roos in the decider.
The two met in the major semi-final a fortnight ago, with the greens coming out on top 20-8.
Last was expecting another close encounter against their Dubbo foes.
“They’re a good enough side without having to have too many filter down,” he said.
“I’m predicting there won’t be too many changes.”
The third grade grand final kicks off at Pride Park at 12pm tomorrow.
