The Maitland Rams thrashed Wests in their second nine-goal victory in as many matches.
Last week the Rams beat Tigers 10-1 and this week they put their opposition away 9-0.
Captain Peter Urquhart said the match was a better overall performance than the previous week, with no significant lapses in their play.
“We were only 2-0 up at half-time but we pressed well and had tons of possession, but we were almost too keen in going forward,” he said.
“We talked about it at half-time and [in the second half] we were a little bit more composed.”
Urquhart said that one of the biggest positives to come out of the game was the fact that the Rams continued to play hard to the end of the match, despite having a commanding lead.
“When you back off, that’s when the other team can get back into the game,” Urquhart said.
Matthew Brown scored four of the Rams’ goals, while Nathan Baker and Tobin Bush scored two each and Matthew Hooson scored one.
“Damien Schweinberger played an outstanding game,” Urquhart said.
“We’ve changed the way we play in the last couple of games, playing with two wing halves and only one full back.
“[Schweinberger] has handled the pressure well, as have [defenders] Brett Gallagher and Chris Collier.
“The forwards have been pressing really well and they’ve been able to do that because of the support from these guys.”
