Clarence Town made it three wins in a row with a convincing 58-5 victory against last placed Maitland United.
The Cobras opened the scoring courtesy of clever flick pass from Ben Bradley to fullback Kurt Blowes which enabled him to race 40 metres to score.
The sideline conversion from Badior had the Cobras leading 6-0.
Bradley was in the thick of things again when he ran off a Badior pass proving too strong to score next to the posts. The conversion gave Clarence Town a 12-0 lead.
The Cobras were well on top and when Blowes turned a nice ball inside for Rits to charge though the defence and score, the home-side had raced to 16-0 lead.
The Cobras blew a couple of chances when they were unable to capitalise on good lead up work.
But United had handling issues of their own, an error 20 metres out from their own line led to Bradley pouncing on the loose ball brushing off defenders to score. The conversion stretched the lead to 22-0.
Mitch Maytom set up the next try with a busting run and clever offload to Lachlan O’Kane who scored.
The Cobras scored off the next set of six, with Ben Trappel scoring the first of his three tries when he dummied and sliced through United’s defence to race 40 metres to score.
Badior completed the first-half scoring when he darted out from dummy half stepping around players to score under the posts for a 38-0 lead.
Clarence Town scored early in the second half when Rits and Trappel combined for the latter to race away to score. Immediately after Maytom burst through on the short side to send Blowes racing away to score his second try for the afternoon to take the score to 48-0.
The Cobras squandered opportunities in a sloppy 15 minute period, before Bradley steadied the ship with a great individual try to bring up his treble, brushing off would-be defenders for 50 metres to score next to the posts. Badior converted to take the score to 54-0.
From the restart George Dunn broke through and sent Trappel in for his thirid try and a 58-0 lead.
United finished the scoring with a field goal and a try on full-time to former Cobra TJ Whaleboat to take the final score to an unusual 58-5.
The Cobras have the weekend off and play Karuah at Karuah the following Sunday.
Don’t forget the Pork Spit and Bonfire at the Erringhi Hotel on Saturday and the Black Tie Ball on July 8.
