The Glen Innes Elkettes are set for this Saturday's New England Rugby Union grand final against the Pirates in Tamworth.

Earlier this week, Glen's own NSW Waratah Alex Newsome showed his support for the side in this video and now another rugby superstar has sent her well wishes.

Melbourne Rebels Super W captain and Papua New Guinea representative Mel Kawa sent the girls a video message.

"I watched some of your footage with my coach, Alana Thomas, who some of you may know and geez you girls can play," Kawa said.

"You have so much going for you and it looks like you are a really well put together team and playing for each other.

"So I just want to wish you all the best in the grand final."

The games will be live-streamed through the New England Rugby Union Facebook page and the Folmac TV YouTube channel.

The women's games are at 12.40pm and 2.40pm.
