Ag College’s first grade team dispatched Newport with ease, winning 46-3 in the club’s first home game of the season.

Ag College coach mick West said it was a good performance.

“We got stuck into them early and they didn't have any answers for us,” he said.

West said it was good way to finish their first home game of the season.

“It was good for the whole club. It was a pretty good day for round one at College Oval,” he said.

Valley put up a good fight against Redfield, but were ultimately outclassed at Redfield.

The first grade team lost 47-17. Coach John Martin said the team played well in patches, but were inconsistent.

“The first half they got away from us after we scored first. We were quite in rhythym, but we put our heads down a bit after the second try,” he said.

“We won the second half though. They got a try right on full time but we were definitely the better team.

“It was a great improvement. The boys are starting to gel  and we are looking better to better improvement this week.”

In round three, Ag College will play Redfield, while Valley will host Newport.
