THE GROUP 2 grand final will feature a Grafton-based team in every grade.

Grafton Ghosts directly qualified for the first and reserve grade grand finals after wins over Coffs Comets in last week's major semi final.

This weekend it was all about South Grafton Rebels, who faced the unenviable task of knocking off minor premiers Macksville Sea Eagles.

South Grafton did just that, winning their way through to the grand final and sending the Sea Eagles packing in straight sets.

In Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League, Ballina Seagulls claimed the minor premiership after receiving a forfeit from Mullumbimby Giants.

Kyogle Turkeys beat Murwillumbah Mustangs 18-16 to deny the Mustangs a slice of history, which would have seen the club win the minor premiership in all three grades.

Lower Clarence Magpies had their hearts broken by a late penalty and last minute try to lose 18-13 to Evans Head Bombers.

The Magpies held on for a 28-24 win in reserve grade after leading 24-6 at half time.
