Wests, Neddies in
WESTS Scarborough and Nedlands will face off in the Pindan Premier Grade grand final for the second consecutive season after semi-final victories over the weekend.
A second half surge saw Wests Scarborough book their spot in the decider with a 26-9 win over Cottesloe at Bennett Park on Saturday afternoon.
The first half was a back-and-forth physical affair with Cottesloe scrumhalf Charl Nieuwenhuis and Wests’ flyhalf AJ Alatimu trading three penalty goals apiece to head into half time locked at 9-9 after 40 minutes.
In the second half, the Wests gained advantage through the set piece but neither side got a decisive edge. The minor premiers then opened the floodgates however, with two tries in quick succession coming from Jordan Luke and Angus Taylor to book a place in the 2016 decider with a 17-point victory.
Nedlands secured their place in the 2016 Pindan Premier Grade grand final with an authoritative 47-9 win over Palmyra at The Foreshore on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts started strongly shooting out to an early 13-point lead but Palmyra fought and headed into half time with the score at 18-9. However, Nedlands rallied in the second stanza and walked away with a 38-point win.
