The first half was tightly contested, with the opposition only managing to break through Monaro's defence on two occasions, leaving the Colts trailing 12-0 at the break.  

The Colts reduced the margin at the start of the second half with a try through winger Sebastian Jones. 

However, the floodgates opened up and the Rams scored five unanswered tries to run away with the competition points. 

The Colts are 0-3 going into the fourth round of the Andrew Johns Cup. They'll need to win their next two for any chance of progressing to finals.

The game was playing out to be a back-and-forth affair until Monaro flipped the switch and went rampant in the second half. 

The Rams held a 10 point lead until Monaro finally crossed for their first try through winger Lachlan Cunanan with under 10 minutes remaining in the first term. 

Colts second-rower Toby Ferris got over the line for another four pointer on the brink of half time, which saw the scores locked at 10-all heading into the sheds.

The Rams were first to strike when play resumed, regaining the lead for the second time in the match. 

Soon after, everything clicked for Monaro in attack, as they went on a try scoring frenzy. 

James Croker, Harry Hudson, Joseph Elton and Alex Hardy all scored within a 20 minute period to blow Monaro's lead to 34-14. 

The Rams were able to get one back before halfback Jonah Anderson scored on the buzzer to close out another impressive result for Monaro. 

The Colts are back in Canberra for round four, hosting the Macarthur Wests Tigers at NSWRL HQ, Bruce on Sunday.
