THE Bendigo Dragons wanted to put on a show for its home crowd on Saturday night, and they did.

The Dragons outclassed the Monash Barbarians to score one of its biggest wins in the club’s short history.

The final score was 70 to 16.

The offense was led by Cal Kirkpatrick who scored four touchdowns at Tom Flood Sports Center.

Talon Roggasch ran in three touchdowns and Franky Moefaauo scored two touchdowns.

Bendigo head coach Robert Hunter said he was impressed with the team’s ability to do the little things well.

“This was the biggest point difference we have and coming against the team that eliminated us from the finals last year, made it that little bit extra,” he said. 

"The home crowd was also amazing.

"No other team in the league can match our home ground support."

The Dragons now sit in second spot on the division one, conference A ladder with four wins and two losses.

Hunter said a lot had changed with the team since the beginning of the season.

"We started the season with rookies who had little understanding of the game," he said. 

"The turnaround is due to the hard work all the players have put into their development."
