THE Sydney Airport Jets totally overwhelmed Woy Woy by 74-14 in the NSWRL Jim Beam Cup match played at Henson Park last Saturday. The Jets had led 34-0 at half-time, and ran in thirteen tries in their best performance of the season. Centre Ryan Milligan (ex-Newcastle Knights) notched up what are almost certainly Newtown club records for points scored by an individual player and goals kicked in a game in his impressive haul of two tries and eleven goals. Jets coach Trevor Schodel had made a playing comeback because of the team?s injury situation, and was full of praise for the way in which his young squad stuck to their game plan and refused to let the visitors ?get a sniff? at any stage of the match.
