It marked ten wins in a row for Lithgow Workies' reserve grade team, but coach Jimmy Reinhardt was not too impressed with his team's performance at home on Saturday, June 29.
The Workies were dominant throughout, claiming a 44-10 victory in front of their home crowd at Tony Luchetti Oval.
Reinhardt said, all in all, it was a bit of a "bludger of a game" for the Workies reserves.
"A lot of penalties, a lot of dropped ball, a lot of silly mistakes, things that we didn't need to do," he said.
"Everyone turned up 'on', we just couldn't seem to play for the full game."
The team may be getting a bit too complacent with its success this season, he said. It has been unbeaten so far, but Reinhardt said there were still plenty of challenges to come.
"We're having some wins, blokes getting a bit comfortable," he said.
"When everyone was turning up and playing, I think everyone deserves a bit of a shout out today."
Discipline and fighting complacency would be a focus coming up to their match against Oberon next weekend.
"The rest of the season we've got to keep turning up and keep getting better," Reinhardt said.
"We can't just stay at the one level and keep thinking that we're going to keep winning.
"Every team is a threat, it just depends how you turn up every day, to each game."
The coach has his eye on some big games coming up at the back end of the season, including bouts against Mudgee, the Hawks and the Panthers.
