GRAFTON'S State League Netball side will go into the finals of the competition against Ballina as hot favourites after two big wins at Yamba on Sunday.

The Grafton side won both rounds four and five of the competition by defeating Lismore 35-22, and then Lower Clarence 54-33 in a local derby.

"The final score in the Lower Clarence match was not a true reflection of the game as it was a hard tussle to the end, but Grafton were deserved winners and look like hot favourites for the final in two weeks time," Lower Clarence Netball's Tania Kane said.

Pressure was on all teams to perform and the spectators were certainly entertained with some great netball.

Ballina goes into the final after beating Casino 56-48 at Yamba on Sunday.

"When the youth of Ballina take on the experience of Grafton we are in for an exciting final," Kane said.

A huge crowd is expected at The Raymond Laurie Sports Centre in Yamba on August 19 at 10am.
