WINDSOR unleashed their attacking prowess in overcoming a spirited Mounties to confirm their spot in the finals in another high scoring affair, 46-26, on Saturday.
The first 40 minutes was a fast, open affair with both sides going try-for-try, although Windsor would have been further in front at the break had they shown more composure in attack.
Windsor was able to take the lead minutes out from half-time when a Ropana bomb bounced backwards, allowing Wes Naiqama to out-sprint the Mounties' cover defence to regather to run 60 metres to score.
Windsor quickly opened up the biggest lead of the game soon after resumption of play when Cameron Ciraldo found Luke Capewell backing up to score.
Windsor extended the lead to 34-20 when Matt Moylan put Naiqama away down the right from halfway with a well-timed pass, before backing up to score out wide.
Ciraldo could have put the game beyond doubt with two opportunities - firstly scoring a try only to be denied by the referee for a forward pass and minutes later dropping a pass with the try line wide open after great lead-up work from Tia Kilifi and Capewell.
Mounties capitalised on the near misses to again reduce the gap when Williams put Foster into a gap before backing up on the inside to score under the posts.
In the final minutes Blake South and Sam Anderson combined twice to let the
prop score a double for the game and give Anderson seven tries for the season.
Windsor 46 (Satini 2, Anderson 2, Nabuli, Naiqama, Moylan, Capewell. Goals: Naiqama 7/8)
Mounties 26 (Carr, Allwood, Shackleton, McIllwrick, Williams. Goals: Williams 3/5).
