The West Australian Reds left Wentworthville fans seeing red after the Jim Beam Cup newcomers ran riot on their way to a 20-point victory in round 5.
While the Reds can be happy with the win, when one examines their start to the first half it’s obvious they could have done even better.
They crossed the line four times in the first half having two tries disallowed and the two others being dropped.
It wasn’t until captain Shane McMenemy got over the line well into the game which gave the side the lead 4 – 0.
The Magpies managed to run in their first try to tie the game soon after, and following Mick Kestel being sin binned within eight minutes of half time, they scored another try and converted to hold a reasonable half time lead.
Up 10-4 at half-time, the more experienced home side seemed to be in control of the game until the visitors proved anything the Magpies could do, they could do better by scoring 26-unanswered points.
Reds Coach Chris Dever then simply reminded the players to hold onto the ball and play complete sets into the second half.
This steadied the side for 15 minutes before they were given the green light by the Magpies defence and quickly ran in tries through Ryan Dickson, Ben Lindegaard, Tyrone Coppedge and Craig Godecke.
Kestel only converted one of three tries before being replaced by Dickson who slotted the Godecke try to take the Reds to a 24 to 10 lead well into the game.

Sub Steve Gherardi then had a strong play before going over the line towards the end of the game. That try was then converted by Dickson.
Meanwhile online support for the Reds is growing at a phenomenal rate with two WA Reds facebook groups already established on the popular global social network.
147 members are now officially registered in one of the two Reds groups.
As this goes to press, the Reds and the Wentworthville Magpies are the only Jim Beam Cup teams with a facebook group.
In other round 5 action, fans of Southern Sydney and Campbelltown are still holding candlelight vigils after their respective teams failed to snatch win number one last weekend.
Shellharbour put Southern Sydney to sleep with an impressive 44-10 bludgeoning while Campbelltown drew 20-all against Chester Hill at home.
Sydney Bulls four-game undefeated streak came to an end after they went down to Mounties 22-18 at the Crest Stadium.
The Bulls lagged behind 22-8 with seven minutes remaining before two quick tries forced the visitors to scramble in defence to avoid a football travesty.
This was not necessarily a surprising result given the Bulls were missing some big guns including props Charlie Farrah (bereavement) and Charlie Nohra (suspended) and looked much lighter then they usually are.
Windsor ensured Cabramatta’s winning sequence was short-lived after they disposed of them 35-26 in a close affair while Belrose grabbed their second biggest win of the year with a 44-20 victory over Erina. - Read More, Here
