WINDSOR Wolves celebrated Back to Windsor Day in the best possible fashion on Saturday with an emphatic 48-28 win over the North Sydney Bears at Windsor Sporting Complex.
Guy Missio returned as head coach while Garth Brennan also went back to his old side, the under 20s, in another restructuring at Penrith.
But the slight disruption didn't hurt the Wolves as they ran riot against the Bears who fielded first grade regulars Matt King, Michael Crocker, Justin Hunt and Ben Lowe.
Windsor flew out of the blocks to lead 22-0 and in the process celebrate Eto Nabuli's 20th try in his first season of rugby league in Australia.
After 60 minutes the match was over as the Wolves led 48-6, but injuries to Tom Eisenhuth and Cameron Ciraldo left the Wolves with no interchanges remaining for the last 15 minutes and the Bears were able to capitalise, scoring three late tries to put some respectability to a score
Missio was a relieved and happy after the game given the build-up to the match.
This Saturday, the Wolves take on a Mounties side that will be desperate to hold on to their place in the top eight.
