Belief as Strong as Ever – McQueen
Belief is strong at Redfern according to Rabbitohs forward Chris McQueen ahead of this Sunday’s Elimination Final clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
Earlier in the week, Head Coach Michael Maguire named his strongest possible side for what will be the Club’s first ever Finals hit-out against the Sharks, less suspended forwards George Burgess and Issac Luke.
But that won’t stop the Rabbitohs this Sunday as they look to get their 2015 Finals campaign off to a good start.
“Our belief is still very high,” said McQueen.
“We’ve won some big games this year with the squad – we’ve been out there and had great performances with the squad that are going to be out there this weekend. Our belief is as strong as ever.”
Cronulla come into the clash having gone down to Manly in their last encounter by 14-12 – the men from The Shire finishing the season in sixth position with 14 wins and 10 losses to their name.
“They’ve been a danger team all year – they’re playing great footy,” said McQueen of the Sharks.
“Obviously Paul Gallen’s probably got the biggest engine in the game and then their outside backs and fullback are playing great footy – they’re a threat all across the park so we’ve got to show up ready to play.”
The Rabbitohs will take on the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in Week 1 of the NRL Telstra Premiership Finals Series at Allianz Stadium this Sunday with kick-off slated for 4.10pm. Purchase your tickets!
