It will be a string of firsts for the Launceston Tigers as they host the Devonport Bulls for the right to be crowned champions of the Tasmanian premiership rugby.
It is believed that the upcoming fixture is the first grand final to be held at Royal Park in recent history.
Launceston secured their ticket to their first ever grand final with victory over the Bulls 39-31 in a high-scoring affair before Devonport recalibrated and accounted for the Burnie Emus in the preliminary final last week.
Launceston president Isaac Anderson said the club was excited to be playing a grand final in front of a home crowd.
"To come through, have a grand final and do it in front of our family and friends, it's certainly very special to us, we're really looking forward to the day," he said.
Despite recent success over the Bulls, the Tigers are wary of Tasmanian rugby's powerhouse side.
"Certainly, they're the team that's had the experience at this sort of pointy end of the season, this is their third grand final in a row so they've been there before," he said.
"They've got a very experienced forward pack and they've got some real strike power out wide, we've already played them a few times this year ... but like I said we're fairly confident in our preparation."
Flanker Tom Suttor will miss the grand final after injuring his rib in the semi-final but the rest of the Launceston squad are available.
The Tigers take on the Bulls on August 28 at 3pm at Royal Park.
