ALTHOUGH the weather was bleak at Kiama Showground, both rugby teams came away with solid wins against Bowral.
First grade ran into a strong southerly in the first half but built up a hard fought 26-0 advantage.
Jacob Riwai-Couch got the forward momentum going, with number eight Leighton Cowley making some huge breaks. Andrew Sulter was prominent with some bone-jarring head-on tackles. Mick Kauter showed his attacking flair with some super off-loads.
Club stalwart Stewie Parmeter played a prominent role in the second stanza with astute grubber kicking and line-busting charges resulting in five-pointers. Matt Cook was solid at the back, but again, although Kiama had the upper hand they missed a considerable number of clear scoring chances.
Benny Wade notched the quadrella and Ben King Gee piloted over some top conversions in the swirling conditions, bringing the score to a comfortable 43-0 win over a gallant Bowral.
Kiama Seconds ran riot against a hapless Bowral winning 64-19.
The Kiama forwards rampaged through the opposing pack to set up numerous attacking raids.
Wise Suka had a field day, scoring four tries, and was ably backed up by Ryan Williams bagging a double.
