A WIN this weekend will see the Dianas coast straight into this year’s women’s sevens grand final. 

In their way is the CSU Reddies, the only team to have beaten them this season. 

That defeat was back in round one and the Dianas have only progressed from strength-to-strength since then. 

Coach Andrew Reilly was expecting a fierce contest on Saturday at No. 1 Oval, but was confident his charges could get the job done. 

The Dianas earned themselves last weekend off after claiming the minor premiership, spending the week training hard in preparation for the major semi-final. 

“We had a good week off and trained strongly,” Reilly said. 

“I think we have been building towards peaking at the end of the season, so I’m fairly confident ahead of Saturday. 

“CSU are a good team, so we’re expecting it will be a tough game.”

The team has also been notified two of their players in Kaitlyn McKay and Rebecca Vaughan are in contention for this year’s league best and fairest honour, which is named the Alicia Quirk medal. 

The Dianas this year are a team of experienced and youthful players and Reilly said all were up to the occasion. He said all they needed to do was stick to their game plan and the whistle and victory should come their way.
