If you can’t make it to Maclean on Sunday for the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League grand final, tune into local ABC Radio to hear a call of the big game.

With no match in the NRL on Sunday, the ABC team headed by David Morrow will visit Maclean to call the grand final between Lower Clarence Magpies and Northern United.

Grand finals can sometimes tend to be dour defensive games, but this is sure to be a game of attacking football.

Both teams have great attacking players, and for both sides there’s plenty at stake.

Lower Clarence have not won a grand final since 1985, while Northern United are in their first season in the NRRRL.

The teams have met twice this season; United won in round one at Lismore, while Lower Clarence won at Maclean in round two in a result that gave them the minor premiership.

History dictates that Northern United will be the underdogs: in the past 29 years, home teams have won 25 local grand finals.

Grand Finals, 20 September, Maclean Showground, Maclean:

11am: Under-18s, Kyogle v Ballina.

12.45pm: Reserve Grade, Mullumbimby v Evans Head.

2.45pm: First Grade, Lower Clarence V Northern United.
