THE DAWSON VALLEY DROVERS will be hitting the footy ground running tomorrow for the 2017 Rugby Union Grand Final.

A Grade Captain Angus Creedon said the team is more than ready to smash the game.

"We are pretty excited, we have worked pretty hard this year for it,” he said.

"We have worked hard as a club and a team to get here.

"It is a massive effort, I have been playing for six years and we have been in the grand final four times in my time.”

The game will be held at the Drovers home grounds, The Stockyard, against Rockhampton Brothers.

"They will be tough, it is a grand final, we can't take it lightly,” Angus said.

"We will do what we have to do to make sure we execute everything right.”

Angus said Drovers strengths lie in their back line and counter attack.

"Brothers are a pretty dominant forward pack, so that is where they will come out and we will be ready for that, that is what we have been training, defence will be the key,” he said.

Held in conjunction with the Moura Coal and Country Festival, it will be a big weekend for Moura.

"We have a really good atmosphere at our home games, a lot of community support which helps on the field,” Angus said.

"We can't wait, we're pumped.”
