Easts name three Storm players for Round 7
Easts have named their sides for what shapes as a blockbuster day of footy across three grades at Langlands Park this Saturday.
The Under 16 Cyril Connell Cup Grand Final between Easts Tigers and Central Comets will kick start proceedings at 10:45am. The Tigers have only lost one game so far this season and qualified for the decider after beating Toowoomba 32-26 last weekend at Redcliffe.
The winner of the Grand Final gets the opportunity to compete in the National Final at Leichardt Oval NSW, on May 14. The club is urging all supporters to get to Langlands Park early to help give the young side a vocal home ground advantage.
Conincidentally, the Queensland Instrust Super Cup fixture also sees Easts take on Central. Coach Troy McCarthy has selected an unchanged outfit from the one that took the field in last Sunday's harrowing last gasp 18-12 loss to Tweed Heads.
The Tigers FOGS A Grade side registered their first win with a 50-14 thumping of the Jets in Ipswich - they be will looking to continue the form against a desperate Wynnum Manly, who also have only one victory from six games in 2011.
