THE Clermont Bush Pigs got back to their winning ways at the weekend, with a 35-15 victory over the Capella Cattle Dogs.

After suffering their first loss this season just a week earlier, the Bush Pigs were keen to make amends in front of their local Clermont supporters, and they didn't disappoint.

But Clermont coach John Lund said the win wasn't without its trials.

"We got off to a good start but then went away from our natural game," Lund said.

"We started to play their (Capella's) game and they put on three tries after a few moments of frustration."

He said it appeared Capella were caught "a bit short" in the backs, with a number of regulars unavailable for the match.

Loose forward Josh Scott scooped a try or two for Clermont, while halfback Trent Edwards also played strongly.

Lund said he expected to be a number of players down for tomorrow's hit-out against the Moranbah Bulls, but was confident of another robust performance.

Meanwhile the Emerald Rams secured another well-earned away win in Moranbah at the weekend, defeating the Bulls 34-26 on their home turf.
