Waratahs’ Matt Shortis, pictured last year playing against Temora, scored five tries in his team’s win over the Tuskers.Waratahs scored its first win since May 9, as they proved way too strong for Temora on the road.
The Tuskers couldn’t pull off another shock result for the second week running as the Waratahs started to get its season back on track.
Matt Shortis stood out for the‘Tahs as he crossed for five tries in the 55-24 win.
Despite the convincing win, coach Will Mitchell is still looking for improvement from his team, especially defensively as the Tuskers crossed for four tries to secure a bonus point.
“Our defence needs work,” Mitchell said.
“Our defence wasn’t up to scratch and it definitely wasn’t up to scratch for the next two games that we have to win.
“If we defend like that it won’t be good enough.
“I think our attack and support was good, but we need to improve our defence.”
The win moves the‘Tahs back into the top six, with a superior points difference over CSU.
Relieved their horror run, with included consecutive losses to Ag College, Leeton and Griffith, is over,Mitchell is looking for more improvement in the two weeks to ensure his team makes the top tier.
Wagga City is their next assignment before taking on CSU in the last round before the split.
