GRAFTON is in party mode after both first and reserve grade Ghosts sides qualified for the Group 2 grand final.

The Ghosts were dominant across the park in both grades, but it first grade's 20-0 win which holds slightly higher importance for the club.

Not only does it mean there will be two Grafton teams playing on grand final day, it also means Group 2's biggest day will be played at Frank McGuren Field.

There is every chance a third Grafton side could make it, with South Grafton Rebels set to feature in next week's Under-18 preliminary final.

In the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League, Lower Clarence Magpies fell to heavy losses against Mullumbimby Giants in all three grades.
