Maitland Pickers 28 def Dubbo CYMS 0

Ex-NRL talent and halfback for the Maitland Pickers, Brock Lamb truly displayed an on-field masterclass when he lead his team to a huge defeat over the Dubbo CYMS 28-0 on home soil.

It was all class straightaway from the Pickers, with winger Willis Alatini putting the first four points on the scoreboard for the green and black with hooker Alex Langbridge following suit shortly after, serving his own try and increasing their lead to 10-0.

The second half saw no change of tune from either side, when Maitland came out of the sheds to continue dominating on their left edge, and Dubbo simply could not compete with their level of expertise.

The Pickers Faitotoa Faitotoa showed determination and aggression towards the opponents, charging through their defence line to bag his own try in the 46th minute.

Off the hands of Brock Lamb to halves partner Chad O’Donnell, Maitland well and truly sealed their defeat against Dubbo, raising the score gap to 22-0 after a successful conversion from the former Sydney Rooster.

To end the day, Lamb try-assisted second rower Cooper Jenkins and successfully converted another try to send the CYMS packing their bags with a 28-0 loss.

Glebe Burwood Wolves 16 def North Sydney Bears 12

The Rams have managed to cross for just one try in the opening two fixtures, while Western Suburbs were able to avenge their 22-16 loss to Thirroul Butchers in Round 1.
