Newfoundland hammers Toronto in pivotal RCSL matchup

The Newfoundland Rock went into Toronto Saturday and played arguably its best game of the Rugby Canada Super League Season.

The Rock hammered the Toronto Extreme 77-13 to improve to 4-0, solidifying its grip on second place in the East Division and keeping within striking distance of first-place Niagara.

Mike Rudofsky, Robert Wilson, Chris Mooney and Andrew Fagan each scored two tries for the Rock Saturday, with Rod Snow, Justin Meyers, Geoff Warden, Brian McKenzie and Ciaran Hearn all scoring one try for Newfoundland.

Many in the RCSL expected this matchup to be close, but the final score didnt surprise Rock head coach Pat Parfrey.

This is the second year in a row Toronto has fielded a weaker team ... they werent able to play with us, Parfrey said.

However, it wasnt all peaches and cream for the Rock Saturday, as both Warden and Hearn suffered injuries that could keep them out of action for a while. Both men will likely be re-evaluated when the team returns to St. Johns. Up next for the Rock is a matchup in Halifax Monday against the Nova Scotia Keltics.
