WHEN the Bundaberg Rugby League A-grade grand finalists run on to Salter Oval September 21 it won't just be the spectators at Salter Oval enjoying the action.

League fans across the state who have tuned into ABC Grandstand will get blow by blow description of the action as the football season wraps up.

Bundaberg Rugby League chairman Mike Ireland was excited with the prospect of the grand final being beamed across Queensland and he expected the listeners will enjoy the contest, regardless of the teams playing.

It has been the closest home and away season in memory with the minor premier decided in the last game of the final round of the year, making predicting of the winner a tough task and setting up a great grand final.

With commentators Quintin Hull and Brad Tallon ready to call the game Ireland was reluctant to send a couple of team sheets of who he thought would be in the game ABC headquarters to give the pair a head start on matching players names with numbers.

Ireland said any one of the five clubs in the finals - Wests, Brothers, Easts, Isis and Wallaroos - if they were at full strength were capable of beating any other team on their day.
