A COMBINED seven-try effort by Jamberoo Superoos second-rower Kyle Stone and five-eighth Mark Asquith has helped their team to a 10-try, 46-10 demolition of the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs at Kevin Walsh Oval on Saturday.
Stone, with four tries and Asquith with three, were unstoppable as the Superoos systematically demolished the plucky Bulldogs who, because of lack of numbers, had to back up several players from their reserve grade, which played the entire lower-grade game with just 11 men.
It was obvious from the opening whistle that Jamberoo meant business and they were quickly on the board through a an early double from Asquith in the fourth and seventh minutes before Stone crossed out wide on the left and James Gilmore on the right in the 17th and 20th minutes respectively - to see the home side race to an 18-nil lead.
Unperturbed, the Dogs bounced back when second-rower Lepani Waqa crashed over and Tarje Whitford converted before the Superoos restart went out of the full, handing the visitors field position.
A clever cross-kick from half Jayde Tooth was then superbly plucked out of the air one-handed by winger Travis Wooden who placed the ball down millimetres before the dead-ball line to close the Superoos lead to just eight.
But just when the Dogs seemed to be gaining momentum, it was snuffed out when Stone surged onto a Jono Dallas pass and raced 70 metres down the touchline and outpaced several cover defenders to score out wide and send the home team to a 22-10 half-time lead.
Jamberoo continued to up the pressure on that swing in momentum when Dylan Capaan ran off a superb long ball from Mark Asquith to score in the corner and just four minutes later, the same combination led to Capaan getting outside his opposite number and Asquith backed up on the inside for his hat-trick.
Dean Watling, who was having a rare off day with the boot, landed the sideline conversion for a 32-10 lead.
Simon Maslanka powered over in the 62nd minute and Kyle Stone made it four for the day with a late double, as the exhausted Bulldogs simply ran out of puff.
Apart from Asquith and Stone, Brock Skelly, Jake Clarke and James Gilmore were among a the best for the Superoos, while Trent Ryan, Tom Woodward, Lepani Waqa and Tarje Whitford never stopped trying for the Bulldogs.
The unbeaten Superoos now face possibly their biggest test next weekend when they take on a resurgent Nowra-Bomaderry at Nowra on Saturday, while the Dogs travel to Warilla to play the Gorillas.
