The Final of the Mad Butcher Fox Memorial competition has two teams competing that have never made the final of the competition before, making it a very interesting match-up indeed.
Papakura Sea Eagles take on the Manuwera Marlins at 12.30pm on Sunday, the curtain raiser for the Bartercard Cup final between the Bulls and the Lions.
Papakura have led the Fox Memorial competition for most of the year, with the Marlins and Mangere East snapping at their heels continuously.
A thrilling semi-final last week saw the Manuwera side narrowly edge out Mangere East from reaching another final by 16-14
The Manuwera club also have another of their teams competing in the Fox Memorial Premier 1st competition on Saturday afternoon at Cornwall Park, up against Mt Albert Lions in the final.
