The Two Blues got the job done 14.22 (106) to 6.9 (45) at Wynyard, a game that Templeton said his boys controlled for the majority of the match.

The visitors led at every change, by 17 at the first change, 30 at half-time and 47 at the final change.

‘’We were just trying to get the ball in a little bit quicker into our forward line,’’ he said.

‘’We looked at where we position ourselves in our forward-line, where the most attacking parts of the ground were, so we could give our forwards the best opportunity.’’

Penguin forward Chris McDonald cashed in to kick five goals, while Will Dau also bagged five for the Two Blues.

Luke Gorrie’s forward pressure and Keenan Slater in the back-pocket drew high praise for Templeton, standouts in what he said was a team performance.

He paid credit to Wynyard’s pressure, which contributed to their inaccuracy, but goal-kicking would be a focus going forward.

‘’We are getting these shots on goals, but we need to straighten up,’’ he said.

For the Cats,Chris Bryan kicked four goals, while Mitchell Englund had a strong game.

Penguin’s win moves them into third spot on the ladder with a 2-0 record, while Wynyard are sixth having split their first two outings.
