The Rebels will take on the Comets in a final showdown

THE stage is set for a classic showdown at McKittrick Park this Sunday afternoon.

South Grafton Rebels will host a senior grand final for the first time since the legendary side of 1975 tasted Group One success.

The Rebels deservedly start favourites as the minor premiers and convincing 54-4 winners in the major semi-final just two weeks ago.

Under Dallas Waters they have assembled a team oozing with class and a willingness to play for each other.

Coffs Harbour, on the other hand, are seasoned performers and are ably led by one of Country Rugby League's finest mentors in Col Speed.

Those who doubt the Comets need only look back to round 10, when they dished out a similarly one-sided scoreline of 52-18 against the Rebels.

Meanwhile, Grafton Ghosts fans will be there to cheer on their reserve grade side, who are attempting to defend the club's first ever premiership in that grade when they take on Sawtell.

The day kicks off at 11.30am with the Under-18s grand final between Sawtell and Coffs Harbour.
