Midfielders Todd Gallagher, Darcy Bell and Lachie MacDonald celebrate the Rams' win.

Todd Gallagher, Darcy Bell and Lachie MacDonald (pictured, from left) could hardly contain their excitement after the Deniliquin Rams upset ladder leader and old foe Finley in the Murray Football League on Saturday.

The three star midfielders embraced after the final siren as their side signalled its worth as a true premiership contender by posting an eighth consecutive victory.

A massive crowd turned out at Deniliquin’s Hardinge St where the home side stormed home to score an emphatic 23-point triumph.

Footy fans couldn’t have asked for a better day, with the game played under clear skies and a top of 14°C.

Three rows of cars lined some parts of the oval, with some vehicles even spilling outside onto Hardinge St.

‘‘It was certainly the biggest crowd we’ve had this year and I think they got their money’s worth,’’ Rams president Scott Barlow said.

‘‘They saw the kind of tough, hard footy you’d expect from two top sides in good form, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day weather wise.’’
