Wauchope Blues ladies league side downs Taree City in Group Three semi final series

Wauchope Blues' ladies league tag side has just one more hurdle to overcome before it cements a place in the Group Three grand final.

On Saturday, the side defeated Taree City 32 points to 14 to earn a place in the preliminary final against Port City Breakers.

Despite finishing fifth on the competition ladder, the Blues side has played strongly throughout the semi final series.

Blues spokesperson Ged Roods admitted he had a gut feeling the ladies side could cause a boilover on Sunday at Verge Street Oval, Kempsey.

"We have nothing to lose going into the game on Sunday," he said.

"Everyone is stoked where we have come from through this year and I've got a gut feeling that the underdogs might just prevail.

"Of course, Port Breakers are a decent side and has lost just a couple of games over the last three years.

"But Sunday's loss (in the major semi final) was their first loss of the season."

Roods praised all players in the side's win on Saturday with Allie Wood leading the way with two tries and was the stand out player in the game.

"Most pleasing was that nearly all of our tries came from a player making a break and finding support players to pick up that final pass to score," he said.

"We have been concentrating on pushing up to support the ball carrier.

"To see the side take what we have been working on all year and then executing it was really good to see.

"Plus our defence was also outstanding on the day."

The side had pushed out to a strong 26 point lead but let in some consolation points in the final 10 minutes of the match.

That can't happen on Sunday against the Port Breakers.
