There will be fans watching from far and wide as the best players in the region take centre stage for this Saturday's New England Rugby Union grand finals.

The Glen Innes Elkettes will take the field across the two women's 7s matches and throwing his support behind the side is hometown hero and NSW Waratahs player Alex Newsome.

The Glen local sent the Examiner a video message for the Elkettes.

"The whole local community is behind you and I am behind you as well - I will be watching it on the livestream," Newsome said.

"If I can say two things, it would be play with high physicality and a high work rate and the result will take care of itself.

"So go hard and all the best."
