WATCH: Wallabys get sweet revenge against Tannum Seagals
RUGBY LEAGUE: Wallabys' women avenged the bitterness of missing out on the Rockhampton extended A-grade grand final with a 28-4 win against Tannum Seagals on Saturday.
Seagals won the extended competition last weekend, but were outclassed by a determined Wallaby's outfit.
Wallabys' captain Kate Cunningham set up the game's first try to Tahnee Guinea and the women in orange were up and about.
Cunningham then scored a try of her own and a conversion for 10-0 and despite a lift in intensity by the A-grade premiers, Wallabys' defence held firm.
When it counter-attacked for another try just before half-time, the game was out of Tannum's reach and the team that beat Wallabys in the A-grade preliminary final, were on its knees
"This week, we just really wanted to put it all together, play for each other and show Tannum what we have got," Cunningham said.
"I'm just super proud of our girls and we worked hard for each other."
It was party time when Jill Kornbrekke powered through for another try and by the time Seagals India Poulton finally scored her team's first, it was too little too late.
The combination of Sharnee Werahiko and Cunningham for another try was the icing on the Wallabys' cake.
Seagals' coach Will Jamieson understood it was hard for his team to back up from last weekend.
"Full credit to the Wallabys and it's always a good local derby and they deserved their win and they will celebrate hard and we will also celebrate hard," he said.
Tannum Seagals missed last week's stars Vassa Hunter and Krystal Sulter.
"The girls do 30 tackles a game and 20 hit-ups for you and you take that out of your side then it's really hard to replace," Jamieson said.
