The season might be over for us but we’ve got it all to play for in the last two matches, starting with Sunday’s scorcher.

Following the victory against Newcastle two weeks back, it’s been a good break.

We had a solid week of training made all the better coming off the win away. The squad are in a good head-space and we won’t be giving up just because our finals chances have ended.

We’re aiming for those final two wins at home to help us finish off as well as we can and cause a few upsets along the way.

I’ve enjoyed the whole season and the whole experience of it again. I absolutely love the team, love all of the girls and love the coaching staff.

Being able to build friendships and play with such great players has been unforgettable! You learn so much.

We still have two matches left though, starting on the weekend against Brisbane.

They’re the top side for a reason, so we just have to do our best and get the three points.

It’s been ages since we last played at home – the 29th of December to be exact – so we’re definitely hoping a few fans come out to support us particularly after the last win.

It is going to be quite warm during the day, warm meaning 42 degrees. But kick-off has been delayed until 6:00pm so it’ll be a little cooler by then for sure and hopefully our fans still come out and support the girls.

It’s going to be very, very hot but to be honest I’m actually used to playing in the heat now. We have had to do it the entire season and we train in it constantly too. I know I said last week’s training was solid, but it was ridiculously warm!

We still train though, it just makes us more used to the conditions, so hopefully that translates to an advantage over Brisbane.

Up there it’s a different, humid heat but down south it’s much drier. Either way it will still be a tough match.

The Roar are a fit and physical side with great players.

Katrina Gorry is a strong, world class player and can dictate most of the game. If we can shut her down that’ll be a massive advantage for us.

To be fair though they have quality all over the park, but if we can work even harder as a unit than we did against Newcastle and finish the chances we had we can beat any team.

So come out, support us, cheer us on and we’ll honestly bust our guts to get the three points!
