Theres nowhere else to be this Saturday but the BCI Stadium where five body-on-the-line rugby league grand finals games will be played.
While the main match will be the premier grade grand finals between defending champions the Avatiu Eels and 2008/2009 champions the Tupapa Panthers, rising league stars in the junior grade will hit the field first.
The Avatiu Eels, Tupapa Panthers, Arorangi Bears and Titikaveka Bulldogs clubs all feature in the Saturday grand finals games.
The first game of the day will be an exhibition of raw talent as the gun under 13 Arorangi Bears grade take on the Avatiu Eels.
The Bears will feature again in the under 16 grade grand finals against the Panthers and in the under 19 match against the Eels.
The reserve grade grand final game is predicted to be as big and intense as the premier grade game.
Seven time defending champions in the reserve grade the Arorangi Bears, will take to the field against the tenacious Titikaveka Bulldogs the only Bulldogs team in the grand finals.
The Bears are certainly not going to let anything get in the way of an 8th year in a row win but the Bulldogs will be feeling hard done by after being disqualified in the knockouts and this could prove deadly for the Bears.
The main match of the day will kick off at 7.30pm at the BCI Stadium where all eyes will be on the Eels and Panthers.
