The Albury-Wodonga Steamers overcame a horror unavailability toll to hammer winless CSU on Saturday.
The visitors were missing around 12 players with injury, illness or other commitments, but cobbled together a competitive outfit to post a 49-7 away thumping.

"We came back from a poor preparation, we scrambled together a first grade squad on Friday night, Saturday morning and they jumped us by scoring a try, but we regrouped and got back into simple structure and scored four or five good tries," coach Paul Musarra said.
The Steamers were missing key players Tom Boyle, Tim Carroll and Ryan O'Sullivan, but the backline fired in their absence.
"Benn Reid had a very good game, Sam Allen and Tom Wilmore was injured, but we got half a game out of him and he had a really good game at inside centre," Musarra said.
The Steamers are fifth, two points behind Wagga City, with four matches left, starting with Tumut away.
