THE Dianas are back on top of the women’s sevens ladder and the timing couldn’t be better. 

With just three weeks of the regular season remaining, the Dianas moved to the top of the table after defeating the CSU Reddies on Saturday, 27-24 in a close encounter. 

CSU had previously been the only team to defeat the Leeton side this season. 

The win meant the Dianas leaped into first spot and are now hopeful of hanging on to the coveted position as the finals near. 

“It was a really good game … the girls stuck it out together,” coach Andrew Reilly said of the CSU match. 

“There was a lot to be positive about.”

If the Dianas are able to maintain their position at the top it could mean they play their major semi-final on their home turf. 

However, Reilly was keen to put a lid on the excitement. 

He said it was important the Dianas focused on the next three matches and not get too far ahead of themselves. 

This weekend they will take on the Griffith Blacks at No.1 Oval. 

“They've certainly improved and we won’t be taking them lightly at all,” Reilly said.

“There’s always a bit of rivalry between the two sides.

“We’ll be going into the match with a similar side to last week.”
