A second win on the trot for the Women's Premier Division sees them slide up the ladder into fourth place after three rounds. Their next match will be a big one as they take on Macquarie University who are currently in third place. Unfortunately the Men's Premier Division had their first loss of the season, which also puts them into fourth place on the ladder. They'll look to bounce back with a big win over seventh placed Camden next weekend. There were also a couple of big milestones over the weekend - Fletcher Rowe played his 150th game for the Bulldogs, while Andrew Goodieson notched up 200 games.

The UNSW Judo club were represented at a state level competition on the Central Coast over the weekend, with some 220 athletes from all over the State. UNSW had 25 entrants from juniors through to seniors. It was a very successful tournament for the club, finishing up with eight gold medals and many other placings. It was particularly pleasing to see several new student members competing - all getting some valuable experience and some taking home medals. The coaching team was there to give support and guidance throughout the day, and were pretty happy overall with the way UNSW performed. From next weekend the Judo club will have a large group of members beginning their official squad training in the lead-up to the National titles in June.
