Consistency and patience are the watch words for Jets’ women ahead of tonight’s NPLW clash with Capalaba at Wolter Park, kick-off 7.45pm.
Victory for Jets would guarantee second place on the ladder, with two rounds remaining, ahead of Capalaba, who are currently third.
It would also maintain Jets’ mathematical chance of catching the leaders Lions and help build momentum approaching the finals.
“We are trying to be consistent in all areas,” said Hano Hanifin, who reaches his 50th NPLW match as coach of Jets women tonight.
“Trying to play our best team, but also look after those who may have a niggling injury.
There’s a chance we’ll rotate the squad a little to help those players.
Capalaba have been a little inconsistent in the last two months winning three, drawing two and losing two of their last seven games.
Over the same period Jets have won five and drawn two – the drawn games both being 2-2 in our last two home fixtures against Souths and The Gap.
But Hano insisted: “Never write any team off. Look at The Gap beating Lions recently after we thought we should have beaten them (The Gap).
“We can’t see into the future. Reality is we didn’t take our chances on the night (against The Gap). It showed 100 per cent the importance of taking chances. It’s crucial.
“We’re definitely good enough to win this competition, but we need consistency in all our play and to be patient at times.
"I think it’s very important we’re not erratic. We just need to take time on occasions.”
