It looked like a mis-match, with second against last. But Jeeps were determined to make our boys work for their points. For the first 20 minutes, Bond were hemmed in, tackling desperately, in their own territory. But the discipline of this side is their strongest feature. They weathered the storm and finally Jeeps cracked. Big prop Gavin Luka ran through some flimsy tackles to score and Hamish Stewart converted, to make it 7-0.
Busy hooker Isaiah Wildermoth has a habit of scoring tries and he burrowed his way over before halftime off a ruck – it was 14-0 at the break.
The momentum shifted in the second half and now it was Bond hammering Jeeps’ line. Flanker Sam Wood had been tigerish in defence and was rewarded with a try off a lineout win by “Tower” Grant. Their tiring defence was found wanting as flying winger Hayden Sargeant scored twice in quick succession and hard-working halfback Zac Newton darted down the blindside to score the 6th try. The final score - Bond 38 GPS 0.
In a team where everyone played well, it was hard to pick a best player, but few would argue with the selection of Sam Wood, who had a blinder.
