Roosterette hungry for finals action

HISTORY IN THE MAKING: Nadene McBride, Brianna Howard and Sophie Breeze prepare for their second final in three years.

BY ALEX TIGANI

The Singleton Roosterettes have only played in one final since their inception.

That day, they were held to a single Brianna Howard goal in their 27-point defeat to Killarney Vale in 2018.

Fast forward two years later and the spearhead will enter this Saturday’s semi-final against Wallsend-West Newcastle after a best on ground performance against Newcastle City.

“There are nerves,” Howard admitted.

“It’s the first time for a long time we are in the finals but I’ll still try to kick a few as always.”

Howard was limited to eight games in the 2020 home and away season due to injury yet still managed to finish with 20 majors thanks to her six-goal haul last week.

Now she eyes her first senior premiership with the club under playing coach Nadene McBride.

WINNERS: Brianna Howard and Nadene McBride celebrate their opening round win against Lake Macquarie.

“Nads has done very well because she is super supportive of everyone and very encouraging,” she continued.

“Her pre-game talk last week got us up and going early so that will be the plan this Saturday once again.”

A win this weekend will see the Roosterettes play-off against the winner of Lake Macquarie vs. The Entrance Bateau Bay in the season decider.

Howard believes her side has unearthed their missing piece of the premiership puzzle.

“Kalani Bates has a lot of footy sense while on the field,” Howard concluded.

“For sure an up and coming superstar in the making, a great runner and mark of the ball with an outstanding kick.”
