Hey Alex, Generally pleased with the scoreline, particularly the zero. We travelled with 22 and used all subs shortly after halftime. Unfortunately due to injury had to play a man down for the last 20 mins. The scoreline was 31-0 at half and 45 nil fulltime. Five tries came throught the backs Bobby Johns, Adam Ducoing, Alex Phillpot, Brad Guarisco, and Ross Bellaci. Two came through the forwards Nick Benvenutti and Paul Bode. Guarisco was 5 of 7 on conversions.
