WESTS produced a stunning return to form with a 70-16 win over Helensburgh at Parrish Park on Saturday.

The Devils ran in 12 tries against the defending premiers, taking their overall tally from their past two games to 22 four-pointers.

It sees them climb back into the top two heading into next week’s bye and remain odds on to stay there with a favourable run home. 

The hosts were on the board through Keiran Rankmore after just three minutes and led 20-0 after just 18 minutes when Tristan Sailor, Justin Rodrigues and Jye Mullane all crossed.

Tries to Rankmore and Mitch Porter kept them ahead of the clock at 34-0 after 30 minutes before Helensburgh finally got on the board.

Rankmore completed his hat-trick five minutes after the resumption while Lachlan Hurst bagged a second half double while Mullane also had a brace. Hayden Carpenter’s try on fulltime completed the rout. 

Meanwhile Thirroul defeated Corrimal 26-10 at Gibson Park.
