“This is only our third grand final (appearance),” Walker said.
“We would be the first Agrade side to win the premiership. It would be great if we could do it.”
Walker said he was impressed with the game.
“It was a really high standard A-grade game of rugby league,” Walker said.
“St Marys were ahead for most of the match but we were able to wear them down in the last 20 minutes.”
“We put on two or three tries to get to the 26-18 lead and then St Marys came back to make the final score 26-24.”
The Comets had defeated St Marys twice during the normal season, but Walker said the team did not underestimate their ability.
“We knew St Marys is a strong side so it was going to be a close game,” Walker said.
The win secured the Comets a spot in the grand final, to be played at Pepper Stadium on Sunday, August 30.
Their opponent will be decided at Sunday’s semi-final between St Marys and Emu Plains at St Marys Stadium.
