Rebels into junior grand finals
THE news keeps getting better for local rugby league, with the South Grafton Rebels qualifying for the under-10 grand final.
Against all expectation, the U10 Rebels snuck into the finals series in fourth place, and have been playing with the threat of elimination over their heads ever since.
The Rebels beat Casino in the first week and came out on top of their local rivals in the preliminary final last week.
"They beat the Ghosts 22-12 last week to get in," president Ray Taunton said.
"They've been up against it, that's for sure."
Taunton praised coach Ronnie Gordon and said the team had gelled brilliantly.
"Everyone's put their hands up all year and done really well," he said.
"Ronnie's got them playing as a team and they've been training really hard.
"More importantly, they're all really excited for it."
They will take the field at 9am in the first grand final of the day tomorrow, when they take on Northern United at New Park, Kyogle.
