Stallions outplay Tigers

The Stallions travelled to Eden on Sunday to take on the Eden Tigers.

Eden are currently one spot ahead of the Stallions and a win was a must if they are to hold any hope of reaching this years semi-finals.

The game started at a fast pace and mistakes were minimal and it was proving to be a high class game.

It looked like the first to make a mistake could prove costly.

Cooma continued to mount pressure on Eden and a quick play the ball next to the posts allowed Steven Russell to cross for his maiden try for 2014.

The Stallions were really running hard and their defence was punishing causing a number of reshuffles in the Eden line up.

Then right on half time some quick thinking again from dummy half caught Eden short on the blind side and a clever pass from Jake Schofield saw Paul Perkins cross in the corner.

As the half time hooter was about to sound young Arron Pidcock, playing his first grade debut, calmly slotted the conversion taking the score to 12 nil in favour of the Stallions.

The Stallions came out determined to continue the good work displayed in the first half and after 15 minutes a second try to Paul Perkins and young Arron, who was playing a blinder, saw the score blow out to 24 nil in Cooma's favour.

With 20 minutes to play Eden crossed the stripe but Jake Schofield and Arron Pidcock hit back with his second try and when full time blew the Stallions had completely outplayed Eden going on to win 34 - 10.

The players' player this week went to Arron Pidcock on debut while Murray Jackson, Todd Williams and Steven Russel had big games.

This is a really capable side and if a few close results had gone their way they would have been right in the mix come semi-final time.

The Stallions will take on Bega in a must win this Sunday and rely on Tathra to get over Eden week to give them a shot at the finals.
