A LARGE crowd at Cow Stadium were treated to a resounding win by Kiama over a determined Shoalhaven 39-17 in the Illawarra District Rugby Union competition on Saturday.
The team played with vigour, with the forwards led by Mick Kauter, Steve Emmet and Andrew Sulter giving the backline momentum to run in some excellent tries.
With their aggressive approach putting the opposition on the back foot, Kiama showed they are a team to be reckoned with in the 2014 season.
The forwards provided a stable platform to give speedsters Aden Wade, Nathan Trindall and Ross Thorley plenty of opportunities to attack. Benny King-Gee directed traffic with aplomb and had a terrific day with the boot.
Seconds also had a resounding victory over Shoalies by 61-12.
Veteran flyer Chris Weir made a cameo appearance scoring a vintage "magic" try, while the forward pack dominated the second half with the scrum shuffling Shoalies all over the park.
After three first grade wins on the trot Kiama are making their presence felt in the competition.
With some new blood, a gruelling preseason regime and a full complement of players, the Cows' future looks positive.
Seconds have also been on the winners' list, with two from three so far in this campaign. There is a solid depth of players all keen to impress.
Next week the teams face a sterner test at Ocean Park, Woonona, against Shamrocks. After already beating last year's premiers Camden, the players will be looking to continue their great form.
