Resurgent Robins Claim Crucial Win


This was an outstanding win for the robins with coach Tim sheens ecstatic in his praise of his charges highlighting especially the strength of his interchange . Few would have predicted such a huge margin and the Giants coach will be disappointed in this performance after a run of five victories .
For Rovers this win keeps their hopes of a top eight finish alive and who can doubt that ambition on this performance .

Young Giants winger McIntosh opened the scoring grounding a loose ball in the in goal area but the Rovers responded with a Joel Tomkins try after a nice pass from the outstanding Mcguire what a difference the veteran half makes to this rovers team, still displaying all of the skills that kept him at the top for so long .

Ryan shaw converted and the robins were 6-4 up and starting to look good .
The next score for the home team saw the elusive Adam Quinlan take a mulhern pass with shaw again converting to give the rovers a 12-4 lead . The advantage could have been even more going into half time but errors by greenwood and Quinlan kept the giants in the game .

The growing confidence from the home team saw exiting USA international junior Vaivai deceive the giants defence to score early in the second half . Ryan shaw converted and at 18-4 the game was slipping away from a lack lustre giants .
Then within minutes a strong combination from
Mulhern and Mcguire saw Quinlan going over with shaw converting to give the rovers a well deserved 24-4 lead .

Further tries were to follow by Ryan shaw and rovers were looking to run away with this game. With Shaws second try the impressive junior Vaivai was again involved with his excellent passing game. Shaw converted to take rovers to a 36-4 lead.

Whilst there was a late response from Aaron Murphy , young halfback Atkin put the final nail in the giants coffin with a one pointer to give a final score of 37-10

Very solid performances from greenwood , Scruton , Tomkins and Masoe laid the platform for this victory with Mcguire and Atkin superb in the halves. Rover fans will be impressed with the ever improving     Junior Vaivai who caused plenty of problems for the giants and is proving to be a very astute signing .
The giants were generally disappointing and coach Simon Woolford will not be pleased with this performance
