Last Sunday saw the beginning of the end as the positions in the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League finals were set in stone.

The last of the semis was battled out on Stan Sercombe Oval in Murwillumbah as six teams scrambled for a place in the ultimate challenge of the 2013 season.

In the 18s the Mustangs scored 20 to overcome a valiant Giants team on 12 – the Mullumbimby juniors need to be congratulated for an excellent season, as do the Northern United Reggies. Northern United just couldn’t keep up with the Ghosts on the day; Grafton were victorious in a trouncing win scoring 50 to NU’s 12.

All eyes were then glued to the pitch in A grade to see who would make it to Ballina to meet the Seagulls on their home turf, and the Mustangs again proved to be the best bunch on the day in a fairly narrow semi-final win over the Ghosts, with a total of 17 points to Grafton’s 10.

Now all that is left of 2013 is for the fat lady to sing and she is warming her voice for a big day at Kingsford Smith Park this Sunday. To watch the cream of the NRRRL crop win the flag get yourself to Ballina for a very big day.

In the 18s Marist Brothers play Murwillumbah, the Reggies will also feature the Marists and the Grafton Ghosts and the main event will see an in-form and hotly tipped Ballina face off aginst Murwillumbah.

The 18s kick-off at 11am. Entry $12, under 16s free.
