Figures point to win
THEIR attack has piled on over 70 points more than their grand final opponents and their defence has stopped almost 120 points less.
But the history-making reserve grade Grafton Ghosts aren't getting carried away with their success, as captain Liam Bland fired an ominous warning.
"Everything came together against Murwillumbah and, if anything, we're just warming up," Bland said.
"The boys are prepared for a shot at history."
The Ghosts finished three points clear in the regular season, and were fully expected to beat Mullumbimby in the first week of the play-offs.
A six-point loss brought them crashing back to earth, but Bland said it wasn't weighing the side down. "We probably should've won through but we just got a bit lazy," he said. "We're keen to make it right."
The Ghosts lost both clashes with Mullumbimby by a converted try, going down 30-24 in the semi-final two weeks ago, and 28-22 in Round 10.
Grand final glory would cap a successful year for the Ghosts, who won the reserve grade minor premiership for the first time since 1963. The success of the reserves has also gone a long way to the Ghosts securing the club championship this season.
