THE long trip to Pine Rivers Pumas last Saturday proved a worthwhile outing for Southern Bay Cyclones with a 45-0 rugby victory.
It was clear from the start that Pumas were focused on playing the game with a dominant forward performance, so the Cyclones forward defence had to be on its toes to repel Pumas big strong pack.
Cyclones finally cracked the Pumas defence, registering the first try to centre Tim Acason. The conversion to fullback Matt Byrne put Cyclones up 7-0.
In the run-in to halftime, Cyclones added further tries to fly-half Nick Imber, centre Kyle Cooper and with one more conversion to Matt Byrne, took a lead into the break of 19-0.
Acason and Cooper added their second tries and two more conversions to Byrne, had Cyclones out to 33-0.
In a final flourish and full of confidence, Cyclones wrapped the game up with tries to No.8 Billy Baker and flanker LJ Kidwell. Only one of the tries was converted.
Phil's Street Customs player of the day was Kyle Cooper. Try of the Day went to LJ Kidwell. Cyclones have a bye this weekend.
, before resuming the battle for second place against GPS on Saturday, August 25 at 2pm. This game will be played at home.
