Woods’ ability to dominate will be noticed

Aaron Woods takes the ball up against the St George-Illawarra Dragons at Campbelltown Sports Stadium. Picture: Anna Warr.LOCAL James Tedesco has been showered in praise following a sublime and game-changing first 20 minutes against the St George-Illawarra Dragons on Monday night.

And rightly so.

But there was one player’s performance who, in more ways than one, stood out from the pack.

Aaron Woods’ 237 metres from 25 runs was an effort that any prop would boast about on their resume.

While Tedesco’s performance — one try, two try assists, four tackle breaks, two offloads, one line break and two line break assists — stole the headlines, you can rest assured that Woods’ ability to dominate in the middle did not go unnoticed by opposition teams.

Commentators and pessimists have been quick to point out that the Wests Tigers’ two wins have come against mediocre teams with the Dragons and Gold Coast Titans.

Those naysayers are also quick to churn out the line “the real test will be against Souths Sydney this Sunday”.

Sure, Souths are a different proposition.

The praise that has been heaped on the boys from Redfern has come from all corners.

Great young halves, the best fullback in the game and an intimidating forward pack.

But what about Wests Tigers?

While Greg Inglis may be one of, if not, the best fullback in the game, James Tedesco has proved he is no slouch.

Souths halves Luke Keary and Adam Reynolds have excelled in the first two rounds.

However, Wests Tigers possess one of the most highly rated six and seven pairing in the competition in Luke Brooks and Mitch Moses.

Then the there’s the forward pack.

Against the Sydney Roosters Souths’ starting props George Burgess and David Tyrrell combined, ran for one more metre than Aaron Woods’ did on his own against the Dragons.

Do yourself a favour, tip the Tigers to beat Souths this Sunday.

I am.

Townsends recognised

Max and Marion Townsend were awarded a certificate of appreciation by Detective Inspector Peter McKenna MAX and Marion Townsend have been recognised for their work for the community by the NSW Police.

At last Thursday’s Manning Great Lakes LAC Medals and Awards Ceremony at Tuncurry Bowling Club, Max and Marion were presented with a certificate of Appreciation for the work they do with the Street Reach Bus in Wingham.

Max and Marion said the certificate was completely unexpected.

“We were so overwhelmed,” admits Marion.

“We were excited but we didn’t know if we would have to speak.”

As it turns out they simply had to receive the certificate, presented to them by Detective Inspector Peter McKenna and soak in the recognition.

“It is well over due,” said Constable Dave Abbott who nominated the Townsends.

“They have always been a great help with the young ones. They know a lot of the kids by name and they return people to their homes safely. They give a great assistance to the community.”

Max and Marion have operated the Street Reach Bus since November 1999, operating the service on Friday and Saturday nights.

They drive the streets, with Max always at the wheel, seeking to return roaming youngsters to their homes or a refuge if need be.

Their service goes above and beyond the four wheels of the bus though with the couple on call 24 hours a day.

“The police can call us any time of the day or night,” said Max who admits there is a lot of work the couple do behind the scenes to help.

Max always gives out a business card to the young people they assist that has both the mobile phone number for the Street Reach Bus as well as Max and Marion’s home landline .

“They know where they can come to talk, that’s the biggest thing,” admits Max.

“We have a saying, ‘what is said in the van stays in the van.'”

Over the years Max and Marion have seen many of the youngsters they have helped grow up to live productive and happy lives.

“It is rewarding seeing kids make a good life for themselves,” said Marion.

Max and Marion are happy to continue with the Street Reach Bus into the foreseeable future.

They also give out food parcels to help people in need.

To call the Street Reach Bus phone 0418 641 370.
