There's been plenty of support coming in for the Glen Innes Elkettes in the lead up to their New England Rugby Union grand final clash with the Pirates on Saturday.

The local community have got behind the women's team as well as high-profile players and coaches.

One of the country's top women's coaches, current Melbourne Rebels Super W coach and Glen Innes' own Alana Thomas is the latest to send through her piece.

"You've been doing some really great stuff in the last few weeks," she said.

"I think you're really starting to hit your straps at the right end of the season.

"The key thing for me, watching the games throughout the year is, you are the only team that has beaten the Pirates.

"And that was the last time you played so it bodes well for Saturday's grand final."

The women's 7s grand final will be live-streamed through New England Rugby Union's Facebook page and the Folmac TV YouTube channel (see below).

The Glen Innes side will hit the field at 12.40pm and 2.40pm.
