- Redcliffe have won the past two games between the sides, although Norths had won the previous three
- Redcliffe have won the past six games between these two sides at this venue. Norths have only won the one game at Moreton Daily Stadium since 2009 (in 2013) against the Dolphins. Overall Redcliffe have won 18, Norths five with one drawn match
- The teams have played three times in Cup finals, with Redcliffe winning two (the 1999 preliminary final at this venue 26-22 and the 2005 elimination semi-final at Bishop Park 33-10), and Norths one (the 1998 elimination semi-final 16-12 at Bishop Park)
- Apart from the inaugural year of the Cup, this is the first time first year coaches have met in the grand final. They have gone head-to-head only once previously, with Redcliffe victorious 54-16
- This is the second time a team that changed coaches during the season has made the grand final. Kevin Walters won the grand final with the 2001 Toowoomba side (beating Redcliffe at Redcliffe) after taking over from Terry Matterson (who left to coach Norths) after five games, the same number of games that Norths made the switch this year from Rohan Smith to Ben King and Kevin Neighbour
- Despite playing in 32 Brisbane Rugby League grand finals between them prior to the commencement of the Cup, Norths and Redcliffe never met in a BRL decider. Redcliffe did break Norths’ run of six consecutive premierships when the Dolphins won their first BRL title in 1965, beating Valleys in the decider, before Norths won again in 1966
