GALLERY: Nail-biter decided in final moments

THE last South Burnett Rugby League semi-finals game played at the weekend had spectators on the edges of their seats until the full-time whistle blew.

After being down at half-time then making a promising comeback in the second half, Cherbourg Hornets lost to Murgon Mustangs 31-26.

A-grade Murgon Mustangs Coach Paul Brunjes said his side now had the chance to fight for the grand final premiership at their home ground.

"We haven't won a grand final at home since 1990," Brunjes said.

"It was a really tough game on the weekend, to Cherbourg's credit.

"We gave them a few opportunities in the second half where we should have put the game away."

Brunjes said all the clubs had really stepped it up this year.

"It's one of the closet competitions we have had in years," he said.

"For the grand final we know whoever we play it will be a tough match-up.

"We can't go in there thinking we are going to win it, so we just have to be prepared and stay focused."
