Mostert still chas­ing big two

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - STEFAN BARTHOLOMAEUS

sea­son, hand­ing Nep­tunes their first loss of the sea­son in Round 9, and they’re on track to se­cure a fi­nals berth with one round left to play.

Mean­while, Nep­tunes have all but se­cured the mi­nor pre­mier­ship with a 53- 42 win over Ru­n­aways. Bur­dekin were also win­ners this week as they took down High­landers 50- 33 while Mar­ian- Vix­ens had a bye. CHAZ Mostert in­sists that Pro­drive still has work to do to match Shell V- Power and Triple Eight de­spite beat­ing the two heavy­weights in a straight fight at Ip­swich.

While Mostert’s vic­tory ear­lier in the year at Phillip Is­land came amid a chaotic week­end dom­i­nated by tyre fail­ures, there was no such as­ter­isk on his win on Sun­day.

Mostert made the most of a front- row start and held the an­swers to ev­ery­thing that Shell V- Power’s Scott McLaugh­lin and Triple Eight’s Jamie Whin­cup could throw at him.

Mostert re­mains fifth in the cham­pi­onship be­hind the Shell V- Power and Red Bull quar­tet and, de­spite the com­mand­ing per­for­mance, be­lieves Pro­drive is still third in the true peck­ing or­der.

“There’s def­i­nitely some ar­eas we know we’re still weak to a cou­ple of the guys around us ( Shell V- Power and Red Bull HRT),” he said.
