SOUTH Burnett Saints have a lot to play for this weekend in the last round for the regular season.

South Burnett Saints seniors are playing Coolaroo on Sunday and a win will ensure a home final next weekend, while the U14 team are playing for a finals spot.

The Saints sit second on the ladder but can claim a home final next week if they can win.

While Coolaroo don't have much to play for except pride, the team did defeat the Saints in Kingaroy at their only other encounter this year.

Saint's midfielder Adam Branch said the Saints were a better side since the round four match that it lost by three points.

"I think they (Coolaroo) have slipped a bit since then," Branch said.

"And we have really gelled as a team."

Branch said the team was prepared and motivated to get its first home final.

"The field (Gold Park) is narrow so there should be a lot of contested ball in the middle," he said.

"I am looking forward to it."

The seniors game is on Sunday, 12.30pm at Gold Park, Toowoomba.

The U14s play before the main game.
