Sasa and Lytana Togia looked dangerous every time they touched the football, capitalising on the territory gain being made by the forward pack.

Ther game was a tight contest in their early going, with both sides scoring early.

Dalby were able to gain a crucial try just before half time to take a 14-5 lead into the break.

Dalby were the better side in the second half, keeping the Goondiwindi attack at bay.

Two more tries for the Wheatmen sealed victory.

Coach Bart Tuner said he was impressed with his team's performance.

"We trained really well and credit goes to our young kids who have come into the senior grades and have really stepped up.”

The Wheatmen now face Chinchilla, who finished the season on top of the table.
