Former NRL talent Dylan Farrell rued his sin-binning as Gerringong piled on 32 unanswered points to demolish Nowra-Bomaderry on Saturday.
The South Sydney and St George Illawarra centre turned Nowra-Bomaderra coach refused to be critical of the refereeing, instead demanding the Jets be more disciplined after the 42-12 loss at Michael Cronin Oval.
The Jets had led 12-10 at half-time, a week after thrashing competition heavyweights Kiama 26-nil, but it all unravelled after Farrell spent 10 minutes off the field before Josh Coulter was sent off.
"Our aggression was good, but we just had that bit of ill-discipline," he said.
"I got sin-binned at 12-10 and I think we lost our heads from there, we starting playing individual football, chip and chases and that.
"We have what it takes to win games, I couldn't fault last week.
"I had no problems with the referee, we just let ourselves down, some of their guys got under our skin and we let the crowd get involved."

On Sunday, Warilla outlasted Albion Park-Park Oak Flats 24-14 in the derby, while Kiama thrashed Berry-Shoalhaven Heads 56-12 on Saturday. Jamberoo outclassed Stingrays 50-8.
It comes as Milton-Ulladulla could pull out of the first grade competition after struggling for numbers.
The Bulldogs must make a submission about their future by Wednesday, after being forced to forfeit in recent weeks. Milton-Ulladulla secretary Sharon Dowton said "we don't have sufficient numbers to field a [first grade] team at the present moment" in a Group Seven statement this week, while league operations Manager Peter Mehl was waiting to see a more detailed report.
"I can confirm that they [Milton RLFC] need to get a report in by Wednesday, and then the board will make a decision [about the future of Milton's first grade side]," Peter Mehl said.
