Orange Emus put together their most dominant victory of the Blowes Clothing Cup season, dismantling cross-town rivals City in a Pride Park bloodbath.
The 66-7 win puts the premiers in good stead ahead of a final-round showdown against the red hot Cowra Eagles.
You don't learn truck loads about your side during wins like that, but Bromley was just happy to have all his cattle emerge unscathed.
"It was a good hit-out after having two weeks off," he said.
"Everyone came out in good shape. You never know if they're going to play well or not after having a break."
One of the narratives from the derby was the form of Nigel Staniforth as a few of his teammates were suggesting he'd turned back the clock after a few clean line breaks.

"He got some good service that made him look pretty good," Bromley said.
With both Bathurst and Cowra winning, Bromley knows there won't be an easy game come finals time.
"I think there's four genuine title contenders there on their day," he said.
The men in green will now turn their attention to the season finale at Cowra.
"We're going there to win," he said.
Scott McLean, Simon Badgery and Tom Joseph are all expected to return to the regular rotation for the the Eagles trip.
