Diss 33, West Norfolk 19

Diss set up a mouthwatering Woodfordes Norfolk Cup showdown with National League rivals North Walsham yesterday when they saw off a determined West Norfolk side in the semi-finals at Mackenders.

The hosts, whose starting line-up contained just three players who featured in the previous day's encounter, were pushed all the way by the visitors but eventually prevailed to book their place in Sunday's final at Scottow (3pm).

Diss finished the season one position above their Norfolk neighbours, but only after losing the two derby encounters, so both sides will have something to prove in what should be an intriguing encounter.

Diss won through yesterday courtesy of tries from Seb Goodge, Will Colborne, James Nicholls, Giles West and James McMaster, four of which were converted by Goodge.

Every time the hosts looked like pulling away, West Norfolk closed the gap - but although they kept plugging away they were never able to get their noses in front.
