The team that makes fourth will play the first final against the third-placed team in the next final.

The finals of the Byron Bay Twilight Cricket competition will be played this Sunday March 17 after the final four teams are decided during the last round of games this week.

TNR lost one game before Christmas and have stayed strong so should finish on top of the table, with the advantage that they go straight into the major final on Sunday.

The Rip Starters have also looked strong but have lost their last two games,  and if they lose again in their last game this Friday against a fired-up Kronnix, who also have plenty to play for, they could finish in third spot behind Eureka Grass.

If Rip Starters win their last game they will hold on to second place. 

Eureka are odds on to beat the Loafers (currently on the bottom of the table) this week, so they should at least finish third.

But the battle for the last finals position is far from clear.

The Bowlo, Kronnix and the Park Hotel are all capable of taking the spot depending on how results go. A count back is also on the cards if teams end up on equal points.

As mentioned, Kronnix will have to overcome the Rip Starters. 

The Bowlo take on the Byron Brewery on Wednesday and have a good chance of winning after dusting up Kronnix last week.

The Park Hotel are in the box seat as they have the bye this week and are assured the two crucial competition points.

The team that makes fourth will play the first final  against the third-placed team.

The next final sees the winner of this game take on the second place getters for a shot of the table toppers in the major final.

All the action at the Byron Bay Recreation Grounds from 10am.
