Wollongbar-Alstonville, Bangalow, Lennox Head and Ballina have all claimed top four places on the Far North Coast rugby first-grade premiership ladder and will contest finals next weekend.

Ballina’s 43–26 win over Bangalow last Saturday at Quays Reserve gave them the edge over Casuarina, who lost to WAR 68–24 in the last game of the regular season.

Who’s up against who this weekend?

The result will see WAR take on Bangalow this Saturday at 3.15pm, while Lennox Head are up against Ballina on Sunday at 3.15pm. All games are being played at Lyle Park, Wollongbar.

The final four in reserve grade sides are Casuarina, Ballina, Richmond Range and Evans River.

Casuarina and Lismore shared top points in the women’s 10s with Richmond Range and Ballina filling out the top four.
