Wagga Tigers bounced back to the winner's list with a comfortable 58-point win over Narrandera on Saturday.
After suffering their first loss last Sunday to Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong, Tigers responded hard and fast, defeating Narrandera 14.16 (100) to 6.6 (42) at Robertson Oval.
Tigers took control from the outset and coach Troy Maiden was pleased with the response.
"It was what we were looking for," Maiden said.
"It was really windy and that impacted on the game but our boys kept turning up, presenting for each other and working for each other.
"I thought we moved the footy really well today and it was a really good response."
The disappointing aspect was the loss of Reid Gordon to concussion after a heavy knock in the first quarter.
Sam Ryan was best for Tigers, playing across half-back, while Shaun Driscoll was prolific through the midfield and kicked four goals.
Louis Beard and Lahn Shepherd were two others to shine for Tigers.
Macauley Smith worked hard for Narrandera and finished with two goals, while Blake Renet and Harry Grintell continued their strong starts to the year.
