On completion of the round four games at the weekend it looks like Eugowra, Canowindra, Manildra and Peak Hill are a class above the other sides.
Burrangong, Cargo, Grenfell, Trundle and Condobolin are all struggling up against the big four.
The competition so far has been a bit one-sided in most games and, as I said last week, some of the defence and refereeing has been disappointing.
Another disappointment for Woodbridge Cup was the cancellation of next Saturday’s under 18 representative game at Gilgandra due to Castlereagh Cup being unable to field a side.
Saturday’s game saw the Manildra Rhinos prove too strong for the Trundle Boomers 50-14.
Equal competition leaders Eugowra Golden Eagles out-muscled the Condobolin Rams 56-16.
From all reports the Eagles are playing some classy football and look to be the side to beat in 2012.
Peak Hill Roosters recorded their first win 52-22 over a struggling Grenfell Goannas side at Grenfell.
The Goannas are reported to be having trouble fielding a competitive side with injuries and players unavailable.
Competition leaders Canowindra Tigers continued to win, although they have not been that spectacular in getting over the Burrangong Bears on Sunday 34-16, after they held a 28-0 lead at halftime.
The Tigers started strongly, running at will through some paper thin bears defence to be up 16-0 after 20 minutes through three tries to Pat Kennedy, Simon Scott and Rob Burn.
Burrangong Bears were in further trouble when Lester Time was sin binned ten minutes out from halftime.
Canowindra took full advantage, racing in two more tries to big Brad Bowman and Peter Pitta.
Burn converted both for a 28-0 lead at the break.
I don’t know what the Bears coach said at the break but it worked as they came out and took it up to the Tigers in attack.
They scored first via a Rece Dorr try, with Matt Leaifar converting to take the score to Tigers 28-6.
The Tigers hit back with a good try to Brydon Hughes, Burr conversion 34-6 Tigers still 30 minutes to go.
With four minutes to go the Bears scored through Rece Dorr and right on full time Lester Time crossed for the final score 34-16.
It was a good win to the Tigers, with Rob Burn leading the way, setting up his big forwards and outside backs all game.
The Bears had some good players - Lester Time again showed his class in a good comeback.
