Jets outclass Bulldogs for second win

South Coast Group 7

Nowra-Bomaderry Jets 52

Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs 16

THE Nowra-Bomaderry Jets made it back-to-back wins with a convincing 52-16 win against Milton-Ulladulla at Bill Andriske Mollymook Oval on Sunday. 

While all other Group 7 clubs had a week to put their feet up due to the representative game on Saturday, the Jets and the Bulldogs played catch-up for their deferred game from the opening round. 

The home side were never in the game and were outclassed by the Jets in all facets of play. 

While the Bulldogs may have felt the absence of their captain Gary Warburton, due to representative duties, there were no excuses for their performance in the first half. 

The Jets racked up 32 unanswered points in the first half, starting with a try to winger Mark Brandon in the fifth minute, which was converted by Kurt Quinlan for a 6-nil lead. 

Their lead continued to expand and stretched to 28-nil after less than 25 minutes thanks to tries from Isaac Mumberson, Geoff Johnson, Steve Brandon and John Carey. 

One sore point for the Jets in the first half came when Steve Brandon was sent off after a dust up with Matt Cooke, who earned himself 10 minutes in the sin bin.

But even being a man short did not faze the Jets and they were even with the clock when Nathan Falzon crossed in the corner to give them a 32-nil lead in the 32nd minute. 

Just when it looked like the Jets might keep a clean sheet in the first half, the Bulldogs finally got on the board, with a try to Mitch Freeman to make it 32-6 at the break. 

After half time Milton came out firing with Kieren Roughly making a 70 metre dash and it was Mitch Freeman who capitalised to take the score to 32-10.

But apart from a converted try to Nick Goodman on the half hour, the second half was all the Jets.

Mark Brandon, Keiran Brandon, Isaac Mumberson and goal kicker Kurt Quinlan scored tries with Quinlan kicking two goals.

Best for the Jets were Mumberson, Mark Brandon and Keiran Brandon and for Milton Tom Cook, Kieren Roughly and Lachie Moore.
