The First Grade side beat Uni Norths comprehensively 50-5 and in Second Grade also beat them 31-12.
“The Reserve Grade side have done quite well of late and have spent a lot of time together,” First Grade assistant coach Dave Anable told the Post.
INSTRUCTION: First grade co-coach Dave Anable gives Adam Lachlan his assignment as veteran player Boyd Newby looks on.
“And I think the First Grade guys started well and played well early in the piece- they bombed a few tries, but the win is still pretty pleasing considering.”
The Dirty Reds face Wests this weekend at home at Poidevin Oval.
READY, SET: Daniel Karooz prepares to be lifted in the lineout against Uni-Norths in reserve grade.
“Wests look like they’ve had a bit of form in Second Grade, with a win against Hall last week,” Anable said.
“And their first grade are going OK, too, so I expect them to be fairly tough.”
Massive win for Taralga
IN the South Coast Monaro Rugby competition, the Taralga Tigers have racked up their biggest win yet, smashing the Milton Platypi 60-0 on Saturday.
They scored five tries in both halves for one of their biggest wins in a long time.
Competition favourites the Bungendore Mudchooks fought a very determined Batemans Bay Boars side and won 31-19, which leaves them undefeated into the fourth round of the competition.
The Crookwell Dogs were also very impressive against the Jindabyne Bushpigs, in a tight game, winning 19-17.
And finally the Yass Rams had a resounding win at home against the Broulee Dolphins 59- 0, with Broulee suffering from a lack of player numbers.
So the competition table as it stands currently has Bungendore in first place on 15 points, with Taralga on 14 and Boorowa also on 14.
Milton are languishing at the bottom and are yet to gain any points.
Next weekend for Round 4, the Bungendore Mudchooks take on Broulee Dolphins at Broulee, Crookwell are at home against Batemans Bay, Jindabyne faces Boorowa (also at home), Milton are at home against Harden and Taralga are also at home against Yass.
