I98FM Premier League Round 3 Wrap

Thirroul Butchers have made it 3 from 3 to start the I98FM Wollongong Touch Premier League season, with a strong 8-4 win over Dapto Canaries. Building nicely the Butchers were once again led by Luke Tonegato, with all their young guns building around him. “Lewis Sargent-Wilson is thriving in his return to touch, following a big Rugby League season.” Tonegato said. “Jaryd Turner was player of the match, another young player who’s really taken his game to another level.” The Butchers led 8-2 in the match, their defence the most pleasing part of their game for Tonegato. 

Shoalhaven continued its strong start to the year, rolling competition favourites Jamberoo 5-4, while Albion Park and Wests Illawarra scored big wins, 12-4 and 8-5 over Corrimal and Stingrays of Shellharbour respectively.

Meanwhile a head clash between teammates Lily Riolo and Portia Hingle saw the Woonona and Jamberoo game brought to an early holt in the Women’s competition. Riolo came off second best suffering a cut to the nose and possible concussion. She was treated on the field and followed up with some precautionary scans at the hospital. The Bushrangers taking the win 6-4 at the time play was stopped, while Gerringong pipped Stingrays 4-3.
