Yanco-Wamoon taking on Black and Whites in Group 20 under 18s decider

THE Hawk train will be coming hard against the Griffith Black and Whites in the under 18s Group 20 grand final. 

Yanco-Wamoon finished on top of the table in the under 18s after a solid season across the park. 

Thanks to this, they sat out the first week of the finals before going down to their grand final opponents in the Griffith Black and Whites in the second week, 38-34. 

Last weekend they secured the final spot in the big dance with an impressive 40-18 victory over the Yenda Blueheelers in the preliminary final. 

Co-coach Matt Coelli said his side knew what the job at hand was ahead of Sunday. 

“They’ve been a good team all year … they are a very good defensive side,” he said.

Coelli said in order to achieve that it would require a team effort, but he said the likes of Daniel Mihaere and Gerard Au-Nau would need to lead the way.
