Conference 3 Grand Final preview
The Big Fellas Stadium, home of Featherstone Rovers will provide a fitting venue for the Conference 3 Grand Final on Saturday, kick off 2.00pm.
Huddersfield Underbank Rangers will make the short journey across West Yorkshire looking to regain their title as they appear in their fourth consecutive Grand Final, whilst Hemel Stags head up the M1 looking forward to the first Grand Final appearance since 2006.
The Stags will be looking for a better outcome this time round after losing 30-6 to Bramley in the decider six years ago and getting their hands on the trophy would be a fitting way to end their life at this level before the step up to Championship One in 2013.
The sides have met three times already during the 2012 campaign with the Hertfordshire side coming out on top in all three.
They stunned the Rangers on the opening day of season with a 26-20 win and then went on to complete a league double with a 22-26 success in July, however, perhaps their most significant victory came just two weeks ago as they returned to Huddersfield to book their Grand Final date with a 14-24 win.
