THE Dianas have a tentative grip on the Southern Inland minor premiership after a strong 27-5 win over potential contender Wagga City at No. 1 Oval last Saturday.
Leeton was too strong across the park, scoring five tries to one.
Captain Emma Tyrrell said it was a good result in a physical game against a fit opposition.
“We knew they were going to be tough, they’d be one of the best in the competition,” Tyrrell said.
“But the opportunities we created, we took. I couldn’t fault our performance and we came up with a good result.”
However, she did say the game was closer than the final result indicated.
“Because we took our opportunities, we ended up scoring,” Tyrrell said.
“A couple of times they didn’t execute well. We did the little things right.”

Remi Wilton and Lou Strachan played their usual strong games, making breaks through the City line, while Nisi Tabakei proved strong in the forwards. Jess Murphy showed some great cover defence and made try-saving tackles.
This week is the final round against an improving Deniliquin and coach Bart Challacombe said his side could not be complacent with Leeton ahead of Griffith on the ladder by just one point.
“To stay on top we still have to win,” he said.
“If we play as well as we have in the last couple of rounds we should win, but we don’t want to take anyone lightly.”
