Western Rams win their opening two Country Championships matches

After two contrasting wins in the opening two rounds of the Country Championships, Western Rams under-18s coach Cameron Greenhalgh is hoping his side can put it all together in next weekend’s clash with the Bidgee Bulls.

After blitzing the Greater Southern Stingrays in round one, the Rams – which include Bathurst’s Riley Cheshire – were made to work at Camden on Sunday before running out 30-18 winners over the Greater Southern Redbacks.

“I thought the first week the boys played the brand of footy we need to play and really executed it and this weekend they showed defence and an ability to claw their way back and never give up and that was really pleasing,” Greenhalgh said.

“That’s what I took out of it so now we’re looking to combine those two a bit. The attacking brilliance and getting in the grind and coming out the other side.”

The win was an impressive performance from the Rams who rallied from an early 12-0 deficit.
