CSU are hoping third time will charm as they chase the grand final glory.
For the third time in four years, Reddies are through to the women’s rugby sevens grand final.
They’ve fallen short in both attempts so far, including an extra-time thriller last season, but will go into the decider on August 18 full of confidence after a big win over Griffith on Saturday.
The minor premiers had few answers to the CSU onslaught, started by a long range effort from Biola Dawa.
The speedster scored in the opening minute and set her team on course for a 31-7 victory.
Dawa was a stand out for the side and coach Andy Bedford was thrilled to make it through to the grand final.
“It was another good performance from the girls,” Bedford said.
“Biola had a really good game and terrorised them a little bit.
“She was very hard to handle and got a couple of long range tries which are really important in those types of games.
“If you can get something off the back of knock much it is a massive and she is the type of player who can do that.”
CSU took a 17-0 lead into the break and continued with their impressive display.
Leeton have beaten them in both grand final appearances to date, but won’t this time around after getting knocked out by Waratahs on Saturday.
The Wagga side responded to their 36-14 loss to Reddies with a 29-10 win over the Dianas.
They will now tackle Griffith in Tumut on Saturday as they look to lock in their first ever grand final appearance.
CSU have scored big wins over both sides already this finals series, but past experience shows it is a whole new ball game on grand final day.
Bedford believes the side will be better for their two losses.
“The girls now we can play well in these semis but they don’t mean much if we can’t finish it off,” he said.
“They know we still have a job to do and we aren’t patting ourselves on the back for what we’ve done but looking forward to the grand final and trying to play even better.
“We’ve still got some room for improvement.”
