South Perth inflicted a 74-12 caning of the Kalamunda Bulldogs at George Burnett Park yesterday.

The Lions victory was punctuated by excellent line speed and remarkable individual efforts.

Jordy Jacobs should be on the radar of NRL scouts, after his individual brilliance left spectators looking on in awe.

Lions duo Isaac Smith and TK Kahaki also were outstanding, bagging three tries each.

Kalamunda’s endeavour was undeniable, but they struggled to match the fitness of the Lions when it mattered most.

Despite the loss, the Kalamunda forward pack fought manfully and should cause rival defences headaches in the coming weeks.

But this match will be remembered for the deeds of Jordy Jacobs, who looks to have a great career ahead of him.

Gloria Burrows is the clubs oldest living female Life Member of the Western Australia Rugby League club the Kalamunda Bulldogs.

Gloria Burrows’ dedication to the Bulldogs has brought an extreme uniqueness to the club. She has been following her beloved Bulldogs since she was 15 and attended the last game against the South West Warriors. Her husband Jim Burrows [Jimbo] was an original player when the Victoria Park Rugby League Football Club was founded in 1948, he was also a Life Member of the Bulldogs and promoted the club and more importantly the juniors for many years.

Their son Craig Burrows was represented the club in First Grade and also sponsored the club in the past few years. Also their daughter Debby has been with the club since child hood and is unfortunately not well at present and the clubs thoughts are with her and her family at this time.

Reif Saunders is Gloria and Jim Burrows grandson and is also a former player and is now plying his trade as a junior referee through the WARL system.

Loyal support like Gloria’s is essential to the clubs culture and success. The Bulldogs would like to thank her and her family for supporting the Kalamunda Bulldogs Rugby League club.
