THERE is another twist in North Ballarat Roosters’ finals bid.
Selkirk Roosters coach Gerard FitzGerald had calculated most of this season that 10 wins would be enough to make Victorian Football League finals.
Evenness in the competition has prevailed, but it seems the Roosters’ 10th win, a 17-point victory against Geelong, has may offer up that coveted top-eight spot.
The Cats are two games behind the now fifth-ranked Roosters with two rounds to play.
And what a two games the Roosters have ahead in third-ranked Williamstown and ladder leader Port Melbourne - both long-time nemeses.
“This game is ours. Finals are ours,” were FitzGerald’s parting words to fire up his players at the final break.
