Monaro stunned previously undefeated Macarthur Wests, producing an upset victory to record their first win in the Andrew Johns Cup.

The game got into the grind early, with both defensive lines not giving an inch. 

The scores were tied up at 6-all going into the break, with Monaro getting on the board first with winger Sebastian Jones scoring in the corner, before the Tigers levelled through Ruben Toga.   

Motivated by their first half performance, Monaro continued to apply pressure to the opposition defence, which saw the Colts gain a healthy two try lead in the second half.

Monaro centre Latrell Dyer was first to cross in the second term, followed by an athletic showing from fullback Tyler Stonham, who leaped above the pack to claim a kick and put the ball over the line. 

Macarthur Wests got one back deep into the second half but couldn't find a way to the line again which secured Monaro the competition points after a gutsy effort.

Monaro didn't skip a beat in the top two clash, serving Macarthur Wests their first loss of the season in dominant fashion. 

An early sin bin within the first five minutes against second row & captain Joey Elton for a high shot makes the result for Monaro even more gallant. 

Despite being an man down, Monaro were first to score with prop Jesse Millin barging over the line. 

The Tigers hit back with a quick double through Sonny Edwards-Moeke and Dion Williams to snatch up the lead. 

Monaro's forward pack proved dominant, with front-rower Alex Hardy bumping over for a try, followed by JJ Mau Pohiva making a break in the next set before passing off to fullback Yuri Hromow in support to cross for another four pointer, bringing the scores to 18-10 at halftime. 

The second half was all Monaro, who scored three unanswered tries to seal another dominant win. 

Centre Harry Hudson was first to score after the break, followed back-to-back silky cut-out balls from Jonah Anderson to put winger Brady Smith in the corner twice, putting the game to bed. 

Monaro will next face the Riverina Bulls in the final round of the Andrew Johns & Laurie Daley Cups, as well as Monaro's first matches in the Country Championships and Lisa Fiaola Cup.
