There is nothing like Grand-Final week for those teams who make it to the big dance. This week is very special for the clubs, coaches and for those players lucky enough to participate in a Final, especially this year. I hope all teams enjoy the experience and leave nothing on the pitch. This weekend we have some intriguing battles in both the Wadsco Motorworld Marlborough and The Car Company Nelson Bays competitions.
