The match will deliver some of the Cup's finest football with both sides possessing many NRL club juniors from teams including Panthers, Sharks, Roosters, Tigers and Dragons.
Both teams enter the Grand Final confidently having racked up a significant number of tries throughout the competition.
Patrician Brothers move into the Final having scored an average of 33 points per game whilst Endeavour have managed an average of 42 points each match.
Each team boasts a strong defence with Patrician Brothers having conceded an average of only 5 points per match, whilst Endeavour have had only 8 points scored against them in the competition so far.
