Despite a player drain due to representative duties the in-form Beecroft came out on top over Mosman on Saturday.

Without star five-eighth Ben Gordon and centre Mike Daff, both part of the NSW Subbies side, and further depleted by several injuries, the Crofties still had enough class to win 28-10.

Coach Steve Broughton-Rouse promoted several reserve graders to the top tier rather than postpone the match.
