Kev Grimshaw's Canowindra Tigers emphatically bounced back from a disappointing 32-all draw against Manildra with a 36-6 thumping of Eugowra Golden Eagles on Sunday.
After an evenly-matched first half, the premiership favourites ran away with proceedings, turning a single-digit half time buffer into a comprehensive victory.
Coming into the Woodbridge Cup's ninth round, the home side was far from morals as Brad McMillan's men fought for a 14-all draw with Trundle in the previous round.
"We just stuck to the game-plan and structure and we were able to get it out wide and score a few tries," Tigers' five-eighth Callum Clyburn said.
"Last weekend, we went away from our plans but today we remained patient and the points came."
With the second-half of the season approaching, the Tigers have had the chance to grade all of their opponents, and Clyburn still thinks there's one stand out.
"I'd say Trundle are the toughest side we've faced so far," he said.
"Manildra were good, but we really fell away in that second-half."
The Rhinos' round nine result keeps them in touch with top spot as they blasted the Blue Heelers 60-16 at Cargo.
Trundle predictable got a victory against a struggling Condobolin outfit, while Peak Hill bounced back against Grenfell.
