COACH Don Darke finally got to see his troops carry out his battle plan.

Grafton Redmen produced a dominant display to beat Casino 39-0 at Rugby Park on Saturday.

The polished performance however came far too late with the match bringing to an end Grafton's 2013 campaign.

"It's the first time I've seen them do what we wanted them to do all year," Darke said.

"It is disappointing it was in the last game but they know they can do it now.

"Everyone played really well."

Fullback Kyle Hancock had another standout performance for Redmen, bagging three more tries including a 100m effort.

A scything run, chip and chase, toe ahead and regather all featured in Hancock's effort as he staked his claim as the Redmen's long-term fullback.

"Kyle had another great game," Darke said.

"Tommy Tanner had a blinder and Jacob Page was in everything. Ben Robertson and Ed McGrath were at their usual best as well.

"All the boys are pretty happy to end with a win."
