The Rams made it three in a row with a comprehensive display to outclass the Temora Tuskers 47-8 in the southern GrainCorp Cup grand final on Saturday.

Played in front of a big crowd the Rams were always in control after the Tuskers opened the scoring from a Rams mistake to take an early 5-0 lead.

The Rams hit back almost immediately when Cameron Cole put Baz Hobby into a gap and he sliced through to score.

Cameron Hobby converted and the Rams led 7-5.

The Rams were in again not long after when Michael Nixon beat several would be defenders to score a great individual try.

Baz was in again after 25 minutes when he backed up a break by Camo for another converted try 21-5.

The Tuskers had plenty of field position going into the break and were able to kick a penalty goal but never really looked like breaking the Rams defence.

At half time the Rams led 21-8. The Rams ran in four second half tries with three going to wingers Josh Kable, Kyle Keen and Brendan Newstead.

John Wills strolled through to also grab a try for the 47-8 final score.

The lack of footy leading in was never an issue and coaches Syphers and Hobby deserve plenty of credit for their strong performance.

To win the grand final in such dominant fashion topped off another great year for the club in its 60th year.
