TATHRA suffered a scorching defeat at the hands of Bega on Sunday, with the final score 4-80.
A decent crowd turn up and a nasty wind was blowing when the United Fitness Bega Roosters turned up to battle it out with the Tathra Country Club Sea Eagles in the Group 16 first grade match at the Eagle's home turf.
The Roosters settled in quickly, scoring a try in the first few minutes of the game.
Despite the Sea Eagles best efforts, the Roosters attack proved too strong as they broke through the lines of defence.
Roosters captain-coach Ryan Apps said while they had a bad start, the team pulled together and started putting the points in.
"It was a good game," he said.
"We've had a couple of weeks of close games, and we just had to go back to basics.
"It's always a grudge match with Tathra.
"I know they've taken a few players off recently, with injuries."
He said the Roosters themselves have had their fair share of injuries, but will have "everyone back on deck by finals day".
