RUGBY LEAGUE: Stanley River and Caboolture collide at Bokarina on Saturday evening, in a battle for the Sunshine Coast A-grade premiership.

The Wolves head into the encounter as the slight favourites after claiming the minor premiership in the nine-team regular season and beating the Snakes 40-26 in the major semi-final.

The Woodford-based outfit is chasing a dream finish to their return to the region's top flight after spending recent seasons rebuilding in the lower grades.

But the Snakes will take heart from a 26-all draw from earlier in the season and a last-start preliminary final over Kawana, when they snapped the Dolphins' eight-game winning streak.

Follow the action in the commentary below from 5.30pm.
