SOUTH Wagga fast bowler Scott Pople believes the Blues possess the necessary weaponry to upset hot favourite Wagga RSL in Sunday's one-day final at Robertson Oval.Pople has led the Blues attack for the first time this season and is unfazed by the task that stands in the way of South Wagga and back-to-back one-day titles.Wagga RSL has lost just the one game for the year and already boasts two wins from as many games against South Wagga.But previous form and reputations mean little to Pople, who knows what his South Wagga team is capable of."Yeah I think we can win definitely," Pople said."I reckon we've got a real good side and I think we're better at the one-dayers."I think with Joel (Robinson) and Kurt (Robertson) opening the batting, they can really set us up for a big score."Pople has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame this season.Pople has taken the new ball for the first time and has also established himself in Wagga's representative team.He said he has enjoyed everything that has come his way this season."Yeah this is my first year with the new ball but it hasn't been too bad," Pople said."There is more pressure definitely but so far it's been alright."On Sunday Pople will face his toughest test to date ? leading South Wagga's attack in the one-day final.Pople will go head-to-head against Wagga RSL's in-form batting duo Ethan Bartlett and Luke Oakley.The up-and-coming paceman acknowledged the wickets of the Bulldogs pair hold the key to another one-day premiership."Yeah they're definitely the two big ones we need to get," Pople said."I missed the first one-day game against RSL but we'll try and bowl a good line and length and see how we go."
