ROCKHAMPTON'S Withers brothers have arrived in force and will look to continue their try scoring blitz in next week's grand final against Bulldogs.
Daniel, Clint and Mitchell guided Buckaneers One A-grade men's team to a place in the grand final, together bagging seven tries in the 9-4 win over Buckaneers Two in the Rockhampton Touch Association semi-final on Wednesday night.
Buckaneers One face tough opponents in Bulldogs next week, with Bulldogs having the upper hand winning in extra time in their last encounter.
In the B-grade men's competition, Cutters beat Bulldogs 5-3 in the match of the night at Cyril Connell Fields.
The game was fast and furious keeping the spectators entertained, and set up a highly anticipated grand final between Cutters and Prime Time.
Cutters were firm favourites for the competition title after an unbeaten regular season before their first shock loss to Prime Time, who are shaping as the new favourites, last week.
In the A-grade ladies competition, Buckaneers One beat Turkeys 5-1 in a disappointing contest.
They now face Bulldogs next week in a grand final which promises to be a much closer encounter.
The B-grade game was tighter with Fillies producing the goods to win 3-2 over Raiders, setting up a grand-final match with Kalka Tactics who are the firm favourites for the title.
Next week's grand finals start with mixed and masters action on Monday night.
Men's and ladies deciders hit the field on Wednesday night.
