THE DALBY Wheatmen held their annual Sponsors Day on Saturday, with a big crowd in attendance to support the club.

Many of the club's junior teams were in action throughout the day at John Ritter Oval.

In the main game the Wheatmen A-grade team trounced Highfields 82-5.

The side managed to run in 12 tries during the rout, with Paul Maguire scoring four while Dan Merker and Kruse Turner were both able to score two each.

Coach Nathan Bradley was pleased that his side were able to execute their game plan.

"After the full time whistle I was impressed with how we stuck to our structure and played out our pattern of play right to the final whistle without getting too loose,” Bradley said.

The club's B-grade team also had a big win against St George, winning 64-5.
