RUGBY LEAGUE: Seagals are through to its first-ever Women's Rugby League grand final after an inspirational 22-0 win against reigning premiers Wallabys.

Brittany Collins helped set up Crystal McGregor for a try at a time when Seagals desperately needed one when Wallabys had threatened to turn the match at the latter stages of the first half after Seagals had started the aggressors.

 

Elle Hughes then put the icing on Seagals' party cake with the final try of the match.

Seagals started superbly and capitalised via Krystal Sulter who weaved her way through wide after captain Prue Maeyke and Vassa Hunter helped set it up.

Despite two strong tackles by Tahnee Guinea, Seagals maintained possession and Maeyke's clever kick opened up a path for Natalie Duffy for try number two.

Chelsea Smith made an uncharacteristic fumble, evident of the pressure Wallabys have felt.

 

Seagals' captain Krystal Johnston feigned a pass while Guinea produced a clean pick-up deep in defence.

Wallabys' Meagan Wex tried to inspire her team with a blistering run on the grand stand side, but again Seagals won the territory battle to pin the Wallabys' defence in its forward half.

Elle Hughes produced a huge tackle on Wallabys' Samantha Ellis which epitomised Seagals' commitment to the cause.

 

The Wallabys side lifted towards the half-time break, but twice the Seagals' defence stifled any chance Wallabys had.
