Waratah celebrate their Div I Grand Final victory over St Mary's. They will be looking for another season to remember WARATAH Division 1 coach Paul Carroll knows a thing or two about winning flags. Hes won 11 of them. The red-and-whites finished last season in fifth place with 11 wins and six losses, but played excellent finals football when it mattered, beating Southern Districts, Banks and St Marys on the way to a title. Its a workload thing. We felt pretty fit going into last seasons finals, Carroll said. Its about peaking at the right time of the year. There has been a good post-premiership buzz at training leading into the Round 1 grand-final replay against St Marys at TIO Stadium this Sunday. Our numbers are good were getting 40 to 60 guys to training, Carroll said. Our strengths last season were winning the contested football and being strong around the ball. Were looking to be strong again in those areas. Carroll said his second preseason working under Waratahs Premier League coach and former AFL star Michael Magic McLean had been a pleasure. Mago is a freak and Ive learnt a lot from him, Carroll said. He puts in a lot of work and cares about every player at the club. Mago has been big on fitness and doing a lot of skills work with the ball. Peaking at the right time was also something Banks nailed in Division 2 last season. They lost their only two regular-season games to Jabiru, before beating them twice in the finals. Were focusing on our skills and fitness right now, but a lot of the boys are taking it a bit easier at this time of year, coach Andrew Pope said. Last season, we got more consistent as we got further into the finals. Everyone stepped up at the same time and we gelled well as a team. Like Waratahs consistent Division 1 side, Banks pride themselves on their hardness at the ball in the contestedpossession moments. Pope said Richard Baldock who kicked 41 goals last season will be one to watch. He can play a forward role or in the midfield.
