WP World League (Adelaide, Day 2): Australia clearly superior

Australia gave stern lessons to their trans-Tasman neighbours New Zealand on the second day of the FINA World League Asia-Oceania water polo series at the Adelaide Aquatic Centre on May 23, 2009. The Aussie Sharks men beat a determined New Zealand outfit 12-3 while the Aussie Stingers kept the Kiwi women scoreless, finishing 14-0 ahead. Australia now has two wins apiece with the final game of the Adelaide series against Japan tomorrow before flying off to New Zealand for the second round next weekend. The Sharks contained just three Beijing Olympians with one, Rhys Howden, scoring three goals, as did international newcomer Aidan Roach. The halftime score had Australia ahead 8-2 but the game then slowed to a trickle of goals. The women were merciless against a New Zealand team, which was far from disgraced despite the lack of goals.
