TOP OF THE TABLE: Dungog v Stroud.

The Ladies League Tag was a clash of the two unbeaten sides - the Warriors and the Stroud Raiders.

The Raiders took the game to Dungog and put them under pressure.

Dungog made a couple of breaks but their hands let them down. Stroud seemed to spend an eternity attacking the Dungog line and were rewarded with a converted try to lead 6-nil at half-time.

The message to Dungog at the break was hold the ball and the chances will come - and that is exactly what they did with Amelia Morris going over for a converted try soon after the resumption.

The Warriors continued to attack and a cross field kick from Olivia Buckley found the arms of pocket rocket Riley Simon who dived over for a sensational try.

Amelia Morris then put the Warriors eight in front when she crossed for her second try.

But Stroud were not done with yet with a converted try four minutes from fulltime giving them a chance of snatching victory but Dungog ladies weren't to be denied holding on for a win which sent them to the top of the table.

For a team only having its sixth game ever of LLT the Warriors continue to impress with plenty more improvement still to come
