Diehards make it three from three

Dalby has its first piece of silverware for the year after a dominant win on Saturday.

The Diehards ran in eight tries against an understrength Wattles side, to win 46-0.

The win secured the Rod Frahm Memorial Trophy, which is contested between the two clubs.

A strong performance from the Dalby forward pack laid the foundation for their eight tries.

The forward pack was led by a man of the match performance from lock Jason Wardrop, who scored two tries and was resolute in defence.

Coach Kerry Carmichael said he was lucky to have Wardrop in his team.

"He (Wardrop) is a really good player and what he does for our club is bring a lot of enthusiasm to the team,” Carmichael said.

"Some of our boys grow an extra leg with him around and that is a good thing to have in the team.”

The win puts Dalby second on the table behind Pittsworth, with the Diehards having played one less game.

Carmichael said he was not getting carried away with his team's perfect start.

"We were still a little scrappy and we probably bombed three or four tries,” he said.

"If we do that against the top sides we will struggle.”
