Seniors had a couple of early games, including a Thursday night clash between Kia Ora and Allstars 2 in A-reserves.
Allstars 2 went all in for the win, blitzing Kia Ora 60-31.
It was the last game for the season on Friday night in B-grade between the two Olympians teams.
With neither side able to make the finals, the derby was held in high spirits and had plenty of laughs.
