Back to winning ways for Diehards
RUGBY LEAGUE: It was a performance Diehards fans had come to expect from their A-grade side in 2017.
Off the back of two straight defeats, the Dalby men produced a workman-like effort to defeat the Warwick Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.
Shawn Wickham produced a hat-trick as the Diehards ran in a total of six unconverted tries to win 24-0.
Diehards coach Kerry Carmichael said it was a dourer game at times, but he was pleased with keeping the Cowboys scoreless
"I was really pleased with our defence and it looks back on track,” Carmichael said.
"We showed some pride in it which was great.
"I am just happy with getting a win, getting back on track and hopefully we take that to Wattles next week.”
The win sees the Diehards retain top spot on the ladder, level on points with Toowoomba Valleys. Carmichael says his aim is to secure a top-two finish before heading into the finals.
"We have four pretty solid weeks ahead of us,” Carmichael said.
"If we can win three out of the next four we will get a top-two spot.”
The Diehards next match is Sunday, away to Wattles.
