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.
