The 2019 Junior Representative Grand Final fixtures have been confirmed following an exciting weekend of Finals Week Three action with all games set to be played at the new Bankwest Stadium in Western Sydney on Saturday, 4 May.

The Harvey Norman Tarsha Gale Cup Grand Final will kick-off at 11am, with the Illawarra Steelers going head-to-head with the Newcastle Knights 

The Steelers and Knights both enjoyed dominant 2019 campaigns having lost just one game respectively, and is only fitting that the two best teams will meet in the decider.

Meanwhile, UNE Harold Matthews Cup minor premiers Newcastle Knights will take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at 1pm with both teams cementing their place following respective Preliminary Final wins. 

The Knights recorded a 20-6 victory over the Panthers on Saturday before the Bulldogs enjoyed a thrilling 36-30 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs. 

The Illawarra Steelers and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles will round off the historic day when they do battle in the UNE SG Ball Cup Grand Final at 3pm.
