Valleys reserves, Wallabys' women continue winning form
RUGBY LEAGUE: Valleys' reserves chalked up their fourth win on the trot with a 30-18 win against Wallabys at the weekend.
It was only stray goal kicking that kept Wallabys in the Marley Brown Oval contest, with Valleys outscoring them by three tries.
Fullback Michael Ruge scored a double for the Diehards, while Matt Manders kept up his recent try-scoring exploits for Wallabys with a double of his own.
The 12-point win keeps Valleys firming inside the top three ahead of a derby against Tannum this weekend.
Calliope will be wondering how it did not claim the points against an undermanned Biloela who had only 14 players available.
The Roosters went down 22-18 but will hold fifth spot on the ladder after other results went their way.
Wallabys' women made light work of Valleys, running out 48-8 winners minus representative players Zeah Lane and Chelsea Baker.
