The Burrangong Bears travelled to Trundle on Sunday to take on the Trundle side in round 3 of the Woodbridge Cup.
With the Bears only having 16 players due to work reasons and injurys, the Bears got off to a good start with winger Corey Colemen scoring a try.
The Bears didn’t stop there with the defence being the best the boys have done so far this season, with star hooker Matt Leoflath back from injury and leading the way in defence.
The Trundle side put alot of pressure on the Bears on their line, but the Bears held them out until 10 minutes before half time when the Trundle side scored a try - and that was the only try for the game for Trundle.
The Bears led 24-6 at half time.
Coach Mick Dawe told the boys at half time that the defence must keep going, and so it did. He also said we need to score first in the second half.
With Jirrah Rausu and Lester Time working with each other, the trys just kept coming.
The Bears put on some big hits and slowed the Trundle side down. Shawn Brown had his normal game and just never stopped.
Coach Mick Dawe said he was very happy with the performance from his boys.
The Bears travel to Canowindra this week to take on the comp leaders.
It’s going to be a hard game this week.
Every player had very good games on Sunday with the final score being Burrangong Bears 52, Trundle 6.
