ROUND 4 of the Central Queensland Rugby Union Reserve Grade competition saw the mighty Capricorn Tavern Crocs play their first home game of the season against a spirited Biloela.

With two wins under their belt, Cap Coast was on a mission to make a statement to the rest of the competition.

But poor ball control cost The Crocs numerous tries in their 17-0 victory over Biloela.

A minute of silence was held at the start of the match to recognise Anzacs past and present.

The Capricorn Tavern Crocs were playing for serviceman Glen Dodds, who is a member of the team but is currently on deployment in Afghanistan.

Leading from the front for Cap Coast was Wade "Freezer" Smith, who shed many kilos in the pre-season. Smith used his fresh fitness to play the whole match, which included many bullocking runs that continuously left Biloela defenders in his wake.

His efforts earnt him Man of the Match honours.

Mose Kiriona was impressive in his comeback for The Crocs at inside centre, while fly half Martin "the Martian" Ohl directed the team around and nabbed a try for himself.

Evergreen flanker Trent Flynn scored the remaining two tries from hard forward work up the middle.

Coach Jamie Mclauchlan was happy with the win.

But he stressed his team still had a long way to go before The Crocs would be playing their best rugby.

"It is a measure of the team at the moment that we can still win while playing very uncontrolled rugby," Mclauchlan said.

Structure would need to be called on for The Crocs to reach their full potential, he said.

Mclauchlan added the team would be able to practice over the coming weeks, due to a bye this weekend.

The next game for the Capricorn Tavern Crocs will be on May 11 at Bicentennial Oval.
