The Keas are now six points clear at the top of Mount Isa Rugby Union table after a strong performance against Cloncurry over the weekend.
The first half was tightly contested with neither team having subs on their bench.
Fatigue seemed to affect Cloncurry more with multiple turn overs creeping. This only made matters worse for Cloncurry as they started defending more than they should have.
Keas took full advantage of this and crossed the line several times.
Cloncurry captain Rhygan Werrett said the turn overs were costly.
"Our defence was good but we weren't holding possession of the ball for long enough," Werrett said.
"Some great foot work from Jon Con during some scrappy play saw him go over the line for our only try."
Werrett said late fresh legs proved the difference.
"Some fresh Keas legs joined at half time proved to be the advantage in the second half with a few more tries from the outside backs," Werrett said.
The Keas finished the game victorious 22-5 and are now outright leaders on the ladder.
The second game between Warrigals and Euros told a similar story.
The first half was tightly contested with each team taking turns in crossing the line.
But fitness would once again be the deciding factor in the second half as the Euro's back line continually attacked and found multiple gaps in Warrigals defence.
The full time score read 51-14 with the Euros taking the points.
This weekend is the Tri-Nations 10's Tournament at the rugby ground where Isa's best Australians, New Zealanders and Pacific Islanders will face off.
The competition then returns on February 22 with all the teams travelling to Cloncurry for their second home game of the season.
