The match wasn’t without its casualties, however, with hooker Stu Kent badly hurt in a scrum and taken to hospital in Griffith.
No. 8 Scott Francis continued his dominant form against the Phantoms, taking out the Players’ Player accolade, while forward Les Dicker took out the three votes.
Hooker Lynden Goulding collected two votes and breakaway Mason Brown received one.
The Dingo award went to TA Keremeta.
In other SIRU second grade results, Ag College defeated Temora 19-0, Waratahs flogged Tumut 37-0, and Young easily beat reigning premier Albury 26-0.
Meanwhile, Wagga City were too good for Griffith, 28-10, and CSU defeated Cootamundra, 29-12.
The Deniliquin Drovers women’s side played its second rugby sevens match of the season against Leeton on Saturday.
The locals were convincingly beaten, 54-0, in the curtain-raiser to the men’s game.
Despite the loss, star player Stacey O’Meara said the Drovers showed great potential, especially Emma Heine who took out the Players’ Player award.
‘‘Emma was playing just her second game but she made it look like she had played forever.
‘‘This weekend we have a home game against Griffith, who were the minor premiers last year.
‘‘It’s going to be a tough one but our girls are sure to be a persistent opposition.’’
