A host of NRL-experienced players will be eligible for next Sunday's Intrust Super Cup grand final, including Redcliffe's Kotoni Staggs and Easts' Sam Kasiano.

If both players are healthy and selected by their coaches, they will be approved to take the field at Suncorp Stadium in the season decider.

There are two rules that determine whether an NRL player is eligible for finals in the Intrust Super Cup.

• The first rule is that, if a player has played 8 Intrust Super Cup and/or Hastings Deering Colts game in a season, or more, they are deemed eligible.

• The second rule is that, if a team's NRL affiliate or 'parent club' remains alive in the NRL premiership, that player is eligible so long as they do not play in the NRL that same round. The only exception is if that player has not featured in any other Intrust Super Cup finals games before the grand final.

By virtue of the first rule, Staggs is eligible for Redcliffe, as he played 13 Intrust Super Cup games and 2 games in the Hastings Deering Colts, for a total of 15 games in QRL-run competitions.

Staggs played just 11 games in the NRL this season for the Brisbane Broncos.

Kasiano meanwhile, can qualify via the second rule.

The 126kg Samoan colossus played just 48 minutes for Easts in the regular season, but as 'parent club' Melbourne will contest next Friday's NRL semi-final against Cronulla, he is eligible if not selected for that game.

The same is the case for the likes of halfback Brodie Croft.

Indeed, Dalby product Croft qualifies to take a place via both guidelines, having suited up for Easts in 11 games this season.

Other players seen at NRL level this year who could qualify for the Intrust Super Cup grand final include Tom Opacic and Jake Turpin for Redcliffe, and Scott Drinkwater for Easts.
