“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.
