IT'S the Second Division and Junior Development grand finals on Sunday and entry is free at the North Ipswich Reserve so get out and cheer on your favourite clubs.

The 2nd Division grand final between Brothers and Goodna is at 4pm.

The top two teams in this grade will battle it out for grand final honours.

Brothers were the minor premiers but Goodna were only one win behind them so this game should be a close affair.

The grand final teams have met on three occasions this year with the Bretheren winning two of these games.

Brothers prevailed 16-10 in round one and 20-10 in round two.

The Eagles won the round three clash 14-6.

Brothers scored 300 points in attack while Goodna were only just better with 306.

In the defence column, the Eagles also came out on top letting in 94 points while Brothers conceded 116.

For Brothers to win, they will rely heavily on their experienced duo of Jai Beutel and Steve Mills to lead them around the park.

Goodna have experienced players in Corey Kirk and Justin Swney to achieve this for them.

Discipline and the team that can get into the grind and do all the little things right will play big parts in who will hold the trophy aloft.

Tip: Brothers.
