Blue Mountains first grade side produced a solid display of Rugby to set up a big last three rounds with a 49-5 blitz of Knox at Loffberg Oval.The boys lifted their intensity and determination from recent weeks,and this showed in their defence in particulalr,and yes while we had the opposition on the back foot all of the day our forwards reversed their first round effort and were very strong,and the team kept the foot on the home sides throat despite their best efforts,and this result now sets up a very interesting last thee rounds,the Blueys now have a huge 13 point margin over fourth spot,but now have a real tough run home against Drummoyne,Mosman then Collegues but against Knox encouraging signs,although the penalty counts are still brutal against us.Half Luke Ramms produced some golden Rugby to be worthy man of the match honours in a polished display,and Graham Kondek,Steve Lenoci,and Nick O Gorman are unstoppable at the moment,and of course James Richey returned to the first grade paddock again in style,and lets not forget Harry scored two to make his tally against Knox 5 in two games.

Seconds got themselves within two points of the top four,but have a horror run home but the positives were back against Knox with a commanding 43-14 win.The team ran onto the paddock in a switched on mode,knowing what they had to do,and did it,they stuck to structure and played with a high level of team work,and while once again the brilliance and consistancy of gun Brad Kenny was on show again,anyone at the game also could not fail to be impressed by new recruit John Antonio as well who gave the opposition
headaches all day,while it was also a positive to see Mark Patterson back.

Colts are certainly not producing their best with the odds stacked against them at the moment,they were outplayed by the opposition on the day who romped home 45-0.The home team were certainly helped by some pretty average defence at crucial stages,but on the positive side flanker Darcy Thompson was a shining light in a well beaten side and once again show cased his outstanding talent every minute he was on the field.

Thirds lost their battle against top of the table Knox 30-12,the home team came out harder,they had a gun kicker in their squad who made sure that his talents were used to the full with every mistake we made.A halftime blast from Pete had some effect in the second spell as the boys lifted but the gap was too hard to bridge,the Blueys will be looking forward to meeting up with this team again,we proved they were far from unbeatable.The sensational form of Will Healey was on show and his Rugby magic and courage was a pleasure for all to witness,while as usual in the battle up front Sentilli Tukana was on fire,and no suprise Bully was in everything.

Fours lost 18-12 in a result which virtually killed what faint hopes of semis we had,but they certainly made a game of it.Knox came out more determined and with man of the match,inspirational Matt Childs leading the way for our forwards to go forward we kept the honest for the entire match,and while Tausala Pesi was impressive out wide,club history was made with four brothers playing in the one team,Woodrow,Lidorcus,Martin,and Modotirowson Siu...sensational

The fifths were well and truly carved up by Mosman 6ths 40-0.The unbeaten comp leaders were just too good and showed how they have achieved that status,their defence was outstanding ,in fact they have only conceeded 25 points all season.However the Blueys still tried,and prop Jock Needham was in great form and gave his best all day,and Rowen Sargeant was as usual a big contributor,and Pat Cromie stood up to be counted in the tough stuff.
