HERVEY Bay brothers Adam and Steven Minnegal will help fly the flag for Wide Bay at the Australian Oztag Senior Championships in Coffs Harbour.

The pair left today for the tournament, which kicks off on Friday, with high hopes and strong expectations.

For Adam, 24, this will be his second venture to nationals while Steven will debut for the Wizards at the three-day carnival.

Despite the daunting proposition, Adam is confident his 19-year-old brother would not be overawed by the occasion.

"We've had a few more training sessions together as a team, which is a more than what I had in 2010, so he knows the team well," he said.

"I think he has got what it takes to play well against strong opposition.

"We're both pretty competitive as well so that always helps make us try harder."

In recent years Wide Bay has not fared well at the national championships, which features several Sydney-based sides that boast ex-NRL players.

But Adam was confident with a bit of luck the Wizards could be in finals contention.

"The team has trained well and we have a few guys who played for Queensland in the State of Origin match," he said.

"We've learnt how to play together now and we expect to do better than we did last time."
