The Ipswich Rugby League Mayor Paul Pisasale A-Grade Cup finals begin on Saturday September 5 at the North Ipswich Reserve.

After 18 regular season rounds it was the Goodna Eagles who claimed the minor premiership, finishing a single point above defending premiers Norths Tigers.

Goodna and Norths will play-off at the North Ipswich Reserve on Sunday to claim the first spot in the Grand Final.

The two teams met three times during the regular season with Goodna winning on all three occasions.

The last time Norths and Goodna met was round 17 with Goodna winning 38-26.

On that occasion Goodna showed great control with strong play in the forwards and a good kicking game limiting Norths’ chances in the early stages.

Norths fought back though, letting the class of their back line shine through.

The Tigers will have learned a lot from their last meeting with Goodna and they are heading into the finals with momentum after a 56-6 win in their last game of the regular season against West End, while Goodna are also heading into the finals on the back of a big win.

As the top two teams battle it out for a place in the 2015 Ipswich Rugby League Mayor Paul Pisasale A-Grade Cup Grand Final, both coming into the match with momentum, it is sure to be a must-see game for all rugby league fans in Ipswich.

But before Norths and Goodna do battle on Sunday, West End Bulldogs and Brothers will play an elimination final on Saturday.

During the 2015 season West End has proved many times they are a genuine contender for this year’s Ipswich Rugby League premiership.

Strong forwards, creative halves, lightning quick backs, West End has it all.

While Brothers have shown this year that they will always compete and they have the ability to beat anyone.

Both teams have the ability to play exciting football, and as they fight to extend their respective seasons it would not surprise to see the best qualities of both teams shine on Saturday at the North Ipswich Reserve in the elimination final.
