Waterman keen to cap best ever season with a Grand Final win
LEE Waterman is determined to round off his best ever season in style when his Doncaster side take on Barrow in the Championship One Grand Final on Sunday.
The 25-year-old is an integral part of the Doncaster team looking to complete the double after clinching the league leaders shield earlier this month.
So far this season he has scored a club record 34 tries in all competitions and another to help his side win the decider at the Halliwell Jones Stadium would be greatly appreciated.
The former Skirlaugh back admits confidence is sky high thanks to the support they have received in the closing stages of the season when a place in the Grand Final seemed a long way away.

"With just a few games to go in the season we didn't think we would make it," Waterman said.
"Workington and Barrow were in strong positions and we ended up going to London Skolars needing a win to seal the league leaders shield.
"That was a very special moment for us all and the fans that travelled.
"Almost 300 of them made the journey down to London and it would mean everything to win for them.
"They've been a big motivation for us as they've been the 18th man for us all season.
"To be able to complete a double for the fans would be a perfect way to end the season."
After waiting 61 years for Doncaster's first piece of silverware, Waterman is determined to add to it immediately with their second title.
But he knows Barrow will make things very tough for them when they meet on Sunday.
Barrow will be fresher having had last weekend off as a reward for beating Doncaster in the qualifying semi-final a fortnight ago.
Waterman admits the Cumbrian side are favourites as a result, but he's happy to cause another upset.
"I think we're slight underdogs as a result of that match recently," he said.
"But we're confident we can step up our game and get the result we all want.
"We know we weren't at our best that day and we didn't play at 100 per cent.
"But we've been preparing well this week and we're all very confident we can put in a much better performance.
"We set ourselves targets at the start of the season and I don't think many people outside the club thought we stood a chance of winning the league.
"We have already proved a lot of people wrong by doing as well as we have and it would be massive for us now to be able to do a double.
"It's really exciting to be involved in Grand Final day."
