Zac Masters had another strong game for Tumut scoring twice in the win over Albury on Sunday.

Tumut coach Dean Bristow believes his team are back on track after they returned to winning ways against Albury on Sunday.

After two wins to start the season, the Blues ended a two-game losing streak with the 28-18 victory at Twickenham.

Tumut made too many errors in their loss to Junee last week, but Bristow was pleased with how they responded when in a similar circumstance this time around.

“The energy and effort was there last week, but the way we defended our errors and managed to turn them away when had pressure on our own line was the difference,” Bristow said.

Zac Masters led from the front once more.

The young prop has been a revelation since returning home and scored two quick tries to help his team to a 16-12 led at half-time.

Lewis Arragon and Josh Webb scored early in the first half to have the Blues out to a comfortable lead and from there they were able to hold off Albury’s charge.

Bristow is looking to make Twickenham a fortress this season and now they are two from two at home.

“It was a massive win,” he said.

“We emphasised that we are back at home and need to get our season back on track and the boys responded to that.

“The energy and effort from everyone was second to none.”

The loss leaves Albury with just one win to their credit after the first five rounds.

They now tackle winless Young at Greenfield Park on Sunday while Tumut travels to play Temora.
