Panthers defence dazzles Jets  

The West Brisbane Panthers continued their winning momentum in Round 2 with a big 42-4 win over Ipswich Jets.

The Panthers coach Wayne Weeks said he was happy with his side’s defence last weekend against Easts Tigers, but was impressed that they were able to improve on that for this weekend.

“We always try to improve and self-reflect after each week and I think we still have a lot in us,” Weeks said.

“Our defence set the base, I was really happy with how the boys defended and how they applied themselves. They were very focused.”

While you cannot go past the defence of the Panthers when reflecting on this game; Weeks was also happy with his side’s improvement in attack and their display of patience.

“They worked through field position and they patiently threw their passes,” he said.

“They didn’t rush anything.

“It was the little things the boys really improved on from last weekend.”        

Panthers halves Ollie Olds and Kane Zalewski had a great game, with Welsh international Olds scoring two tries and Zalewski scoring a try and kicking six goals.

Weeks said his halves played very well, but it was a full team effort, where the whole side contributed to the win.

“We did a bit of self-reflection in the lead up to this game with Kane. It was a real confidence builder for him and we haven’t seen the best of him yet,” Weeks said.

“Ollie was great again and was very direct.

“Our forwards set the platform and it was a really good effort considering the conditions.”  

The Panthers will host the Redcliffe Dolphins for Round 3 and Weeks is hoping his side can continue their brilliant start to the season.

“Redcliffe are the benchmark. But we will be focusing on us and our improvement for each week,” he said.

In other results from the round, the Wynnum Manly Seagulls had a close win over the Valleys Diehards 24-12 and are equal first the Panthers on the ladder.

The Panthers were not the only team with a big score over the weekend, with the Dolphins bouncing back from last weekend, with a big win over Easts Tigers 36-6.

Phin Myles Taveilli scored two tries to help contribute to the win while Kyle Van Klaveren had a perfect day with the boot kicking the full six goals.
