The team to beat

Kev Grimshaw's Canowindra Tigers have emphatically launched themselves to the top of the Woodbridge Cup ladder thanks to a demolition of Molong Bulls on Sunday.

The Tigers belted the boys in blue 58-20, announcing themselves as the team to beat through two rounds.

After two rounds the Tigers sit atop the Woodbridge Cup ladder courtesy of a massive points differential.

In their two games the Tigers have scored 142 points with just 24 against.

This weekend they meet the Trundle Boomers, the side many thought would be the team to beat this season.

In first grade Tigers fielded a strong side with probably the strongest bench seen at a Tigers game for a long time.

Played in warm conditions the strength of the bench was evident as the match progressed and allowed Grimshaw to rotate his forwards.

It took just six minutes for the Tigers to open the scoring with a converted try but the floodgates didn't open immediately.

It wasn't until the 25th minute that the Tigers stretched the lead to 10-0 through an unconverted try.

Molong then hit back with a try out wide a minute later before further points to Canowindra stretched the lead to 26-4 through some very entertaining play when players went to the sheds.

Just eight minutes into the second half the Tigers extended the lead through another try to take the score to 30-4.

Molong, then hit back to score a converted try 30-10 before the match opened up and the Tigers put on another 28 points and Molong a further 10.

In other Woodbridge Cup games Phil Ingram's Cargo Heelers secured another tight win, downing Condobolin 28-26.

Peak Hill got its first win for the season as they left Eugowra without a victory, the Roosters reigning supreme 44-34.

In the juniors Canowindra Tigers defeated Molong 28-22 after a late try to Pedro Tapim.

The Tigers had lead 22-10 at half time before letting Molong back in to the game to lock scores up 22 all in the final minutes.

Tapim scored in the corner to take the score 26-22 with two minutes remaining.

His try was converted from the sideline.

The League Tag girls lost their match in the final minute of the game 24-22 in a see-sawing match that the girls let slip away.
