Bilambil Jets mow down Eagles

COMPLETELY recovered from their first loss of the season last week, the Bilambil Jets showed their strength at Galleon Way when they stepped up a gear to beat Currumbin Eagles 42-12 yesterday

The Jets still share the top of the Bycroft Cup ladder with Southport after the Tigers also unleashed their power to down Ormeau Shearers 44-0.

The complete dominance by the Jets and Tigers underlines why they share the top of the ladder, two points clear of Runaway Bay who beat Tugun 20-12.

Bilambil opened scoring midway through the first half but then Currumbin struck, scoring two converted tries to take a 12-4 lead after 25 minutes.

However, from there the Eagles played no further role on the scoreboard.

Bilambil stepped up a cog and went to the sheds leading 20-12, coming back to score four unanswered tries in the second stanza.

Jets' coach Troy McCarthy said he thought it was the Jets' most dominating performance all year.

“With our intensity in defence and ball control, I didn't think Currumbin was any chance of winning,” he said.

“The whole team kept pushing up and our backs got a lot of rewards with young backrower Jackson Springer probably our best and he keeps improving each game.”

Elsewhere, Burleigh beat Parkwood 30-8 and Beaudesert held off Hinterland 22-16.
