Last Sunday (6th September) the Glebe Dirty Reds cut loose in the second half to run up a 42-24 win against the Western Rams (a selection based on the Western Division boundaries of the former Country Rugby League).
The boys from the other side of the Blue Mountains led 18-4 at halftime and a massive upset was on the cards.
Big Wes Lolo led the way with three tries as the Dirty Reds piled on 38 points to 6 in the second half.
The Glebe lads confront tougher opposition this Sunday (13th September) , with the undefeated Maitland Pickers being described as one of the best country rugby league club teams seen in decades.
