Jets pay the penalty for discipline lapses. Only an exceptionally hard marker could fault the Sydney Airport Jets for the effort they put into their full-blooded encounter with Western Suburbs, in the Premier League match at rain-lashed Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday. But the Jets paid heavily for their disciplinary indiscretions, eventually losing out 36-18 to the rugged Magpies. While this might have been a cruelly inflated final scoreline for the Jets, the combination of their repeated ruck infringements, handling errors and the failure to make better use of the second half wind cost Newtown big time. Skipper Darrell Trindall's intemperate second half dismissal added to the Jets' cumulative chagrin. Newtown forwards Zoran Ilijoski and Billy Najjarin had outstanding games, with both of these young hard cases lapping up the tough going. Lee Trasler and Troy Barnes also put in a power of hard work, while Nathan Marles and Alf Duncan were the best of the backs. Newtown's Jim Beam Cup team turned in a disappointing performance in their away match against the Windsor Wolves on Saturday night. The Sydney Airport Jets tore away to a great start, leading 14-0 after twenty minutes. The Wolves drew level by halftime and then dominated the second half, running out eventual winners by 38-18. No doubt there are better days ahead for this side, as they settle down after a recent infusion of new players. Shad Royston was the players' player, with Campbell McNiven and Adam Nathaniel also putting strong showings. This Saturday (May 3rd) is a home game double header at Henson Park. The Sydney Airport Jets take on the Newcastle Knights in the Premier League fixture at 3pm, and Souths Juniors in a Jim Beam Cup local derby at 1.30pm.Like
