Stu­dents given les­son by Gulls

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

COTTES­LOE stopped a five-match los­ing run with a 31-22 win over reign­ing cham­pi­ons UWA at McGil­livray Oval in the Pre­mier Grade last Satur­day.

A dou­ble from Uni­ver­sity full­back Chris­tian Jou­bert was not enough to get the points for the stu­dents, with the Gulls shar­ing their four tries among Charles Abel, Lawrence Ur­bain, Ross Haylett-Petty and An­tini Brown.

The win en­sured the fifth-placed Cottes­loe main­tained touch with the com­pe­ti­tion’s top four, af­ter the fourth-placed Kala­munda went down to league-lead­ers Wests Scarborough 37-10 at Bennett Park.

While the Boars (46 points) re­main the only un­de­feated team, Ned­lands (44) con­tinue to breath down their necks fol­low­ing their com­pre­hen­sive 44-14 win over Wan­neroo at Lands­dale.

The win al­lowed last year’s mi­nor premiers to ex­tend their win­ning run to nine matches – their only loss of the sea­son com­ing in Round One against Wests Scarborough.

Ned­dies added an­other bonus point victory to their tally – their sixth for the sea­son – with Joe Ritchie, Danny Hartwell, Richard Nay­lor, Jesse Toto, Kauri Cudd, Davis Tavita, and Dy­lan Lover­sidge touch­ing down for the Fore­shore side’s seven tries.

As­so­ciates (33 points) also con­sol­i­dated their place in the top four with a com­fort­able 47-15 home win against Perth Bayswa­ter at Allen Park.

No.8 Al Rovira crossed for two tries for the Swan­bourne side, while John Ogilvie, Jack­son Web­ster, Michael Pol­las­tri, Hugh Nor­cross, and Te­vita Sifa all crossed for one each in the 32-point victory.

In the week­end’s other re­sult, Palmyra over­came Joon­dalup 23-13.

Soaks will run out at Allen Park again next week against Wan­neroo, Cottes­loe will host Palmyra at Har­vey Field, Ned­lands will face Kala­munda at The Fore­shore and UWA will look to up­set the un­de­feated Wests Scarborough at McGil­livray Oval.
