EARLIER | North against south. Country boys against the city kids.

It is a battle that is almost as old as time itself, and today it all comes to a head in Townsville.

The two best rugby league schools in Queensland, Kirwan High and Palm Beach Currumbin, will go toe-to-toe with the Phil Hall Cup on the line.

For Kirwan it is a chance at history, to win consecutive State Cups for the first time.

It is also a chance at redemption after losing to Palm Beach in the state final two years ago.

For Palm Beach Currumbin it is a chance to extend their legacy, to etch their name as the most dominant rugby league nursery in the Sunshine State.

The battle across the park will be electric, from tough-as-nails forwards through to wingers running at the speed of light.

Palm Beach are coming off an undefeated Alan Langer Cup campaign which culminated in a 16-8 win over cross-town rivals Keebra Park to clinch their third-straight title.

Kirwan's road to the state decider was not as smooth, dropping their final round match of the Aaron Payne Cup to arch-rivals Ignatius Park, before firing back to win the final against the same school.

The final kicks off in Townsville at 3.30pm.
