THE Leeton Greens league tag side will be striving to show just how strong it can be in September when it vies for more finals glory this weekend.

Since the inception of the league tag game into the Group 20 competition, the Leeton Greens have always been at or near the top.

The competition started in 2007 and Leeton has won six of those grand finals, including last year.

The side will be hoping to go back-to-back in 2015.

Their quest to do so starts this weekend when they take on Hay at West Wyalong.

The Greens finished as this year’s minor premiers and earned last weekend off.

Greens coach Kelly Pauls said her side was prepared and ready to go.

“It’s a bit of a trip out to West Wyalong, but it’s even longer for Hay,” she said.

“We’ll be hoping they are at a bit of a disadvantage with that, but we know we’ve got to be on top of our game.

“Our last game before finals wasn’t the best.

“We were lacklustre and, even though we won, we just didn’t play our best.Hopefully that won’t happen this weekend.”

In their first match up this year Leeton defeated Hay 24-10, while their second game was closer, but still in the Greens favour 14-6.

Pauls knows the side will be challenged come Sunday.

“We’re expecting it to be a really tough game against Hay,” she said.
