THE Jamberoo Superoos continued their terrific start to the season, making it three wins from three starts, after easily accounting for the tough Stingrays of Shellharbour 30-6 at Flinders Field on Sunday.
The dominant six-tries-to-one win, which has seen the side rack up 104 points to 20 in their three games to date, was only marred by three bombed first-half tries but in the big scheme of things, Superoos captain-coach Jono Dallas was pleased with the effort coming into next week's clash with fellow unbeaten side and long-time rivals Gerringong at Michael Cronin Oval next Saturday.
The Stingrays loss was a body blow to a side that has built up considerably over the off-season, however, their huge pack found the determined Jamberoo defence and speed of their play a major stumbling block.
Hooker Daniel Burke, deputising for regular kicker Dean Watling who was nursing a suspect hamstring injury, missed the conversion for the visitors to lead 4-nil.
In the 13th minute, Jamberoo prop James Gilmore showed a neat dummy and charged upfield before being dragged down.
From the ensuing play, the ball was spread wide and centre Jake Clarke looked certain to score but had the ball dislodged by a desperate Ben Weatherall lunge.
This proved to be a temporary reprieve as just two minutes later a scrum win from close to the line Jono Dallas cleverly set up Luke Asquith with a great inside pass for Burke to land the extras and it was 10-nil.
Try and they did, the Stingrays just couldn't gain any momentum and a forward pass on halfway handed Jamberoo another chance and after narrowly missing out through a strip on fullback Jarryd Smith.
Two minutes later, it was the Asquith brothers at it again as Mark shrugged off two defenders with Luke backing up to score.
Burke converted for 16-nil.
Stingrays dodged a bullet again just four minutes before the break when a charging Kyle Stone powered his way over, only to lose the ball.
With a breeze at their backs, it was imperative that the Stingrays were first to score after the break, but instead, it was Mark Asquith again just four minutes after the resumption who simply wrong-footed the defence on the line and strolled over.
Burke converted for 22-nil.
Stone kept his roll going in the 55th minute when he made up for the prior miss when he spread-eagled the defence to plunge over before Stingrays supporters had something to celebrate when the light-footed Jayden Harris caught tired defenders out and sped through the defence in the 68th minute for a fine individual try - which was converted.
But as so often happens, the hosts' momentum was cut short when Mark Asquith completed his hat-trick, stepping through flat-footed defenders on the line - as Burke's conversion closed out a 30-6 win.
Mark Asquith was a stand-out for the man of the match award, while Luke Asquith, James Gilmore, Jono Dallas, Jayden Morgan and Kyle Stone were among the Superoos best.
Ollie Williams, Jake Kamire and Keiran Rankmore never stopped trying to lift the Stingrays.
The undefeated Roos now travel to Michael Cronin Oval on Saturday to face the 2-0 Lions, while the Rays have the bye in round four.
