RUGBY UNION: The Emerald Rams are continuing their dominance in the Central Highlands Rugby Union, thrashing the Capella Cattledogs 90-nil at the weekend.

A packed home crowd gathered for the annual Ladies' Day fundraiser, with the club raising $4400 for the Emerald Sub Committee of Breast and Prostate Cancer Association Queensland.

Rams head coach Jim Fabish said the day was a great success and thanked organiser Meredith Carter for all her hard work to put the day together.

The Rams side featured four 17-year-old players for the game, with them all making their mark.

"It was a bit of brush up; Capella was short and in true nature of rugby we gave them four of our players so they could play,” Fabish said.

"We have been undefeated so far this season and that was our biggest winning margin by any team.

"We play Blackwater this weekend and with one more win we would secure our semi-final berth.

"We expect a tough game as they're starting to string wins together and are looking really good and have numbers.”

This weekend is the Rams' Old Boys Day, where any old players are invited to come along with honorary membership on offer.

Held at Morton Park, kick-off for the junior Red Claws games are from 3pm and the seniors play at 4pm.

The Rams are also celebrating 40 years as a club with plans later this season to mark the occasion.
