Joe Davidson – 

The Byron Coopers Magpies will play Tweed Coast Tigers this Saturday afternoon in the local AFL Grand Final at Fripp Oval, Ballina.

Byron defeated Tweed Coast by 40 points just two Saturdays ago in their semi to qualify for the Grand Final. Tweed made the most of their second chance by defeating Ballina Bombers by 25 points in the preliminary final at Bangalow last weekend.

Byron will go into the final game with confidence after attaining three consecutive wins over Tweed this season. However, last season’s premiers, the Tigers, have plenty of experience in big games and are sure to fight tooth and claw in every quarter to retain the flag.

Players and supporters new and old should get down to Ballina at 2pm on Saturday to cheer the boys on and enjoy a tough game of footy. Go the Magpies, it’s time to shine.
