THE Jamberoo Superoos produced a polished attacking and defensive display at Kevin Walsh Oval on Saturday to completely overwhelm Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs 64-nil, in what was only their second game in more than a month.
Taking into account the Anzac Day weekend, a washed-out round and a bye and only a game against Stingrays in between, the Superoos were primed for a big effort against the struggling Bulldogs and did it with style, scoring 11 tries and 10 goals, while holding the Dogs scoreless.
The Bulldogs couldn't have got a worse start, when, in just the third minute, the man arguably one of their best players, Cody Roach, was seriously injured when he chipped ahead and regathered, but in doing so landed awkwardly on his knee and had to be stretchered off and his season may well have been ended.
It took nine minutes for the first points and that came after an incisive dummy half run by Jamberoo hooker Daniel Burke that got his side on the front foot, and he followed that up second run that caught the defence napping as he dived over under the posts and converted for 6-nil.
The decisive point in the game came in the 15th minute when Bulldogs half Travis Wooden scooped up a loose ball just outside the Jamberoo quarter and sprinted away and looked certain to score, but Superoos prop Jayden Morgan showed terrific speed and determination to run Wooden down and bundled him into touch.
The drinks break after 20 minutes must have awoken the sleeping giant, as the Superoos added three tries in nine minutes to Corey Grigg, Mark Asquith and Morgan and added further one just before half-time to Kyle Stone to go to break with a 30-nil lead.
Unfortunately for the visitors, things didn't improve after the break, with Stone and Asquith adding one each for their doubles, with Jarryd Smith also grabbing two, however, it was the tries to captain Jono Dallas and his deputy James Asquith that really stole the show.
Dallas, celebrating his 300th-grade game, made it one to savour when Morgan surged through the tiring defence before putting Dallas over, much to the delight of the big parochial crowd.
Asquith's try came after a great backline play saw winger Nathan Gallestgui race away only to deftly chip infield and Asquith was on hand to grab the ball and score a rare try for the man who plays such an important part in the tries scored by teammates ever week.
While the scoreline was totally lopsided, credit has to be paid to the Doggies who never stopped trying and although outclassed can hold their heads high.
It is impossible to select the best players for Jamberoo as it was a complete team effort, and the win was no doubt satisfying for the team as they honoured Dallas, their little general.
Luke Millard, Blake Mackey and Jack Peel all had some good moments for the Bulldogs.
Next round, the undefeated Roos travel to Cec Glenholmes Oval on Sunday to face Warilla-Lake South, while the Dogs host the Stingrays at Bill Andriske Oval.
