Standout performances by the loose forward trio set a platform to build on winning plenty of turnover ball, creating a big possession advantage for Rocky.

Skipper Bodie Etheredge backed up his monster five try haul against Mandurah with a hat trick, while Jayden Briggs also bagged three tries.

Rocky B Grade went down in a tight 21 – 19 tussle while the Colts fell 38 – 26 to Palmyra.
