The road trip to Bungendore is always a tough one and last Saturday was no exception for the Boorowa Rovers who ran head on into a Tiger freight train last weekend.
Bungendore proved too strong for Boorowa running out big winners 56-0 after leading 22-0 at halftime.
The match was a contest early on with Boorowa only trailing by 4-0 after twenty minutes.
However, three quick tries later in the first half saw the home side skip out to a 22-0 lead at the break.
Bungendore's big and mobile forward pack continued the blitz in the second half and whilst the Rovers forwards tried hard all day, they couldn't match the Tigers, conceding six second half tries.
A couple of injuries also plagued the Rovers with Bungendore taking full advantage of a tiring defensive line.
The best for Boorowa was Alex Stewart who picked up the three points with a big game against the mobile Bungendore forwards.
Nic Stephens was elusive in the backs with two points and the consistent Matt Batt got 1 point.
Hamish Scott again impressed picking up the Players player award.
It was a heavy defeat, but team will quickly put the loss behind them as they go into another tough match against the North Canberra Bears at the Boorowa Showground this Saturday.
The Bears are coming off a heavy defeat themselves, so both sides will be keen to get back on the rails. Boorowa sit just outside the top five and a win is vital to keep in touch with the leaders.
Home ground advantage and a big local crowd will hopefully give the locals the edge.
