CAPELLA Cattledogs made short work of the reigning Central Highlands premiers Emerald Rams, running away with close to a 30-point margin win.

Moranbah Bulls also backed up their first win of the season with a 48-26 win over Rolleston Roos in the opening game of the Emerald double-header at Morton Park.

Outplayed and outmatched, the Rams appeared just a shadow of the dominant club that terrorised teams during the 2010 season.

“We got outplayed, plain and simple” Rams spokesperson Simon Green said.

“Honestly, I think we got the touch up we deserved and hopefully it gives us the kick we need.

“Capella came with a mission and they executed it very well.

“We’ve got the skill, it’s just a matter of putting it together on the day.”

While the Rams are left licking their wounds as they take this week off with the bye, Capella, who were unavailable for comment, will face up to the winning run of Moranbah Bulls.

Bulls captain Kristian Paul said they were given a gentle shake-up in last weekend’s match-up against the Roos.

Down 16-0 early in the first half, poor discipline ensued before the boys from the north finally found their composure to clamp down the screws on Rolleston.

“Our discipline slipped and I have to say I was guilty of it as well,” Paul said.

“I thought as captain I had the right to question the referee but I got marched 10 metres too.”

Despite the misdemeanours, Paul said he was happy to finish on a winning note.

“It’s good to get another win and get some of that confidence back,” he said.

“Eight different blokes ended up scoring tries for us.

“We’ve got Capella this week and they’re always tough but I heard they’ve got 10 starters missing so it should be interesting.”
