The Dubbo Kangaroos women's side is having plenty of fun and it's showing on the field early in the 2020 season.
The Roos are two-from-two to start the season after incredibly trouncing an inexperienced Orange City side 100-0 on Saturday.
The Roos ran in a stunning 18 tries in the victory with five of those for representative star LillyAnn Mason-Spice while Em Caton bagged herself four tries.
"Orange is a developing side and we knew that going in but we managed to execute a few things we've been working on at training and that was good to see," co-coach Gus McDonald. said.
"But at the same time City is a side that's where Dubbo was probably about a year ago.
"They're building and they will only get better."
The rain stayed away just long enough at Orange's Pride Park for the Roos' to produce some electric play across the backline.
The likes of Mason-Spice, Caton, and Alahna Ryan all shone but McDonald was also keen to point out the work of done by the forwards to set the platform.
Kim Fyfe, one of the few older heads in the side, was destructive at prop while youngster Jordan Roos also got through plenty of work.
They allowed the Roos to use the ball quickly and they thrived from there, having a good time in the process.
"A lot of it has been about playing what's in front of us," McDonald said.
"Tens is harder and probably closer to the 15-a-side than 7s and there's a bit more structure but a lot of what we have been doing is playing what's in front of us and we've been training those skills.
"The whole team wants to have fun and that's the best part of it all."
McDonald and his fellow coach Kieran Smith have taken great satisfaction from seeing the side's new and younger players develop this season but there's no doubt Mason-Spice was the star on the weekend.
The Australia A squad member has taken her game to a new level time and time again in recent years and McDonald, also a NSW Rugby development officer, has been there to see much of the development.
"I've known Lill for awhile and off the field this year is just as impressive," McDonald said.
"She's taken on a leadership role and she's got commitments in Sydney and Canberra but she's growing off the field."
The Roos have the bye next weekend before a bumper clash with the highly-regraded Orange Emus women.
The Emus started the season with a comfortable win over Forbes but were handed a defeat by Bathurst on Saturday, the side Roos downed in the opening round.
But Roos coaches McDonald and Keiran Smith are keeping the focus on their players' own performances and driving them to take more control and ownership of their performances.
"Bulldogs and Emus have been the benchmark for the past three years so we just want to keep working on the skills and game management and problem solving," McDonald said.
"It's so we don't have to do as much on the field and we're installing those skills and they're taking it on well."
