Schodel's Marauders Take No Prisoners Against Woy Woy.

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.

Young Kiwi centre Jason Tiatia, trialling for a contract with the Broncos, made a break before linking with winger Nathan Stains to score the Clydesdales first try. Matt Lockyer found winger Steve Beattie with a good pass and then only minutes later Lockyer again put Beattie over for his second try and the Tigers led 10 ? 6. Easts hooker Mike Hobbs crossed under the posts to extend the margin before centre Ashley Alberts snared an intercept and raced 80 metres to score for the Clydesdales and the scores were 16 ? 12 at half-time. Only minutes after the break Lockyer scored to increase the lead but halfback Isaac Kaufmann crossed for Toowoomba to keep the Clydesdales in reach of a win and also their finals aspirations alive. The Tigers however had other ideas and they raced in a further four tries, winger Justin Loomans collecting a double, to record a convincing win.
