24 Centralian Advocate, Tuesday, July 1, 2008 P U B : C A D V D A T E : 1 -J U L -2 0 0 8 P A G E : 2 4 C O L O R : C M Y K SPORT Jongewaard may miss out again From page 28 After being included in the squad for the games four years ago, the Red Centre star was controversially replaced by Josh Fleming after Fleming appealed Jongewaards selection. The disappointment of missing out on the games comes after what has been a testing 12 months for the Centralian. He was charged with aggravated assault, causing harm by dangerous driving and fail ing to stop at the scene of an accident following an incident with training partner Matthew Rex. It was alleged that Jongewaard struck Rex while driving at Normanville, south of Adelaide, in February of last year. Police allege Jongewaard had a blood alcohol reading of .094 at the time of the incident. Jongewaard appeared in District Court in April pleading not guilty to the charges. Memo continues run of good form Rugby League Max Bennett MEMO continued their fine run of form, thrashing a hapless Vikings by a mammoth 58 points at Anzac Oval on Saturday. It was a devastating display by the top side whose superior ball movement and A grade defensive play gave Vikings no chance. What was even more impressive about the Bulls win was that they managed the feat without the services of several of their regulars, including Jarrad Torres and Brad Wallace. Vikings made life easy for Memo, playing easily their worst game of the season. For Memo: This was the performance needed to expel any doubt over the sides premiership credentials, beating Vikings even without several stars. Strength in numbers appears to a strong point of the Bulls 2008 team. For Vikings: Back to the drawing board for the Vikings as the Bulls exposed the sides defensive frailties in emphatic fashion. Next Week: Memo will be expecting a comfortable win against United, while Vikings must recapture their winning form as they take on a fired-up Dragons side. Rovers secure a surprise win Aussie Rules Max Bennett ROVERS effectively ended Hermannsburgs finals hopes with a stirring twogoal win on Sunday. Coming off a series of improved performances the Dogs seemed primed to notch up their sixth win of the season, but the Blues had other ideas. Luke Farrows and the Rovers on ball brigade were in damaging touch, giving gun forward Graham Christ mas a day to remember finishing with six goals. Such was Rovers dominance they finished with a season high of 32 shots on goal with five multiple goal kickers. It is difficult to take any positives from the game for the Dogs. Losing to a side a struggling team with finals football on the line is a pretty ordinary effort. Rovers will be favourites to make it two wins in a row when they play Federal on Saturday. The Bulldogs season will be over if they lose to South on Sunday afternoon. A full forwards shotout ended with South recording their fourth win of the season, holding off a fast-finishing Feds by seven points. It was a tale of two forwards as leading goalkicker Souths Sean Cusack and Feds Steven Brooks went head-to-head. Brooks won the battle, finishing with seven goals, but unfortunately for his side lost the game after leading at every break. It was a far from convincing display from South, who can thank a brain snap from Feds half back Robert Gum. After South was awarded a free kick and goaled, Gum kicked the ball towards the tennis courts, leaving the umpire with no choice but to award another free kick in the goal square, which was duly converted. Bradley Turner provided great dash and rebound for the Roos, putting in an excellent four quarter effort. A get out of jail free card was used by the Roos with an improved performance needed if they are to get anything out of the season. A vastly improved display for the Demons, who looked much better with Brooks as their target up forward. South face fellow struggler Hermannsburg. Feds will be out to notch up win number two against Rovers on Saturday night. Yuendumu has to fight for win Aussie Rules Max Bennett YUENDUMU has recorded their fifth win of the season after a sluggish performance against an improving Papunya. The Magpies looked a shadow of the side that overcame West the fortnight prior and Papunya almost made them pay dearly. The deadly forward duo of Fredrick Minor and Leslie Pearce looked to kick the Eagles to victory finishing with 11 majors. However, the Magpies came good when they needed to holding off the Eagles to move with one game ahead of fourth-placed Anmatjere. Another win sees the Pies slot into fifth spot, priming them for a run at the finals. Improved displays by the Eagles in recent weeks has them knocking on the door of their second win. Yuendumu face a make-or-break eightpointer when they take on Anmatjere on Sunday. Things dont get any easier for Papunya, who take on West on Saturday. Pioneer stamped their authority on top spot, thumping a toothless Ltyentye Apurte by 40 points on Saturday night. The Saints could not have got the Eagles at a better time, with several of their up and coming stars away on Territory Thunder duty. The likes of Daniel Measures and Andrew Baker dominated the corridor, giving forwards Dillon Measures and Darian Preece plenty of supply. Andrew Baker was far and away the best player on the ground, providing dash and long kicking from the half back flank. A terrific performance by the Eagles who seem to have a hunger to win unmatched by any team. Again the Saints looked suspect against physical opposition, f a l l i n g i n t o undicsiplined habits when things arent going their way. Wests Troy Loveridge and Andrew Herbert tackle Uniteds Damien Carey on Saturday. Picture: HANNAH MILLERICK Wests back to thumping ways Rugby League Max Bennett WESTS were back to their devastating best, thumping United Magpies by a whopping 68 points on Saturday. The Dragons looked near perfect in what could be a turning point in the teams season, crossing 14 times. What was most impressive about the win was the sides ability to share the scoring load, with no less than 10 players scoring tries. It was a less than memorable day for the Magpies who were severely outclassed by their talented opponents. For Wests: Normal service resumed for the Dragons as they look to close the gap on Memo and build momentum in preparation for their clash in a fortnights time. For United: A disappoint ing result after a string of impressive performances with speed and quality desperately needed to build the side. Next Week: Wests take on the Vikings, while United face the monumental task of the Bulls.
