GRAND finals are only meant to have one winner but Sunday's Ipswich Rugby League (IRL) A-grade decider will be one exception to that rule.
While only one team will do a post-game lap of honour, some of Ipswich's most needy animals will also have a reason to celebrate.
The IRL and Ipswich councillors Andrew Antoniolli and Paul Pisasale will together donate a combined $200 for each try scored in the A-grade grand final to the West Ipswich branch of the Animal Welfare League.
In addition, the IRL will also donate $10 for each of the 33 tries already scored in this season's A-grade finals series.
When grand finalists Brothers and Fassifern met in a semi-final a fortnight ago, the teams combined for 11 tries, meaning the league could be in for a $2000-plus windfall.
IRL chairman Jack Rhea said it was a simple way of helping out a needy Ipswich organisation.
"This is the first time we've done this but we are all animal lovers so this is just one thing we can do to help out," Mr Rhea said.
"They do such a great job re-housing unwanted animals that we're just happy to help in any way we can."
The AWL plans to use the money for critical infrastructure, including a dog exercise yard, at the Hooper St centre.
