Dogs win in low-scoring game

The Capella Cattledogs proved to be the better team on the day, in what was a low scoring match against the Emerald Rams.
The Capella Cattledogs proved to be the better team on the day, in what was a low scoring match against the Emerald Rams.

THE Capella Cattle Dogs beat the Emerald Rams by two converted tries: the only points for the 80 minutes.

Emerald was playing in front of a home crowd on the weekend but failed to convert its efforts to points in round eight of the Central Highlands rugby union competition, going down 14-nil.

"It was a little bit disappointing," Rams coach Darryl Corrie said.

"We matched them fairly closely in the first half. I was happy with how the boys defended, especially in the first half."

The Cattle Dogs scored seven points close to the end of the first half and Corrie said the half time talk touched on getting control of the set pieces.

But it was not to be, as Corrie said, the Rams were only able to secure 30-40% of the ball in the second half.

"To give the opposition that much ball was a bit disappointing... We can't afford to give them ball and expect to win the game... That's what we did and that's how they won,"   he said.

The only moments of brilliance came from the back line, which Corrie said defended well.

"I was happy with the backs and how they defended," he said.

"I thought the boys were pretty good in general play."

Corrie said the team would regroup.

He said they would focus on getting back to the basics.

"We will go back to training and work on set pieces," he said.

"We have some work to do in the lineout, it let us down.

"We will work on it and go on."
