THE Mansfield Eagles welcomed the Tatura Bulldogs to the Eagles Nest on Saturday.
The afternoon saw the senior Eagles get their first win of the season, get their first score of 100 points and a good percentage boost.
With most of the injured players back after the bye, it was a formidable Mansfield team.
Add to that Nick Gray’s first appearance for the year and the crowd sensed blood.
An Eagles win was never in doubt, though they did struggle a bit against the breeze.
They were a bit tentative to start, but a dominant second quarter scoring 29 points to one laid the foundation for the victory.
