RUGBY LEAGUE: Inglewood is set to host the final two games of the Border Rugby League regular season today.

In the first game of the double header, Stanthorpe will take on Tenterfield, with Inglewood taking on Killarney in the match of the day.

The finals placings have already been determined, with Inglewood booking a spot in the grand final in a fortnight, and Tenterfield facing Killarney next week for the chance to face the Roosters in the decider.

In last week's Killarney double header, Inglewood defeated Stanthorpe 90-0, whilst Killarney gave their home fans a reason to cheer, prevailing 30-26 over Tenterfield.

Buoyed by a hard-fought win over the premiership contending Tigers last week, Killarney Cutters president Aaron McKinney said his side was looking to keep that form rolling into the finals.

"We want to build on the atmosphere of last week's win and keep that going,” McKinney said.

"Players are starting to realise that we're getting down to the serious end of the season, and they showed that last week.

"Last week gave the boys the confidence to know that they can beat any team on their day.”

McKinney is aware that there are still areas of improvement they need ahead of next weekend's semi final.

"We're still looking to fine-tune a few things,” he said.

"A few players have a couple of different positions, so we want to find their best spots before next week

"The impact of our bench players has been phenomenal this season, and we'll be looking for that to continue against Inglewood and next week against Tenterfield.”

"During the finals we're only allowed to have 22 players in our team.

"So players will be fighting it out for a spot, and will be looking to put their best foot forward.”
