Newcastle Jets substitute Joey Champness hit a late winner as Ernie Merrick's high-flyers defeated Brisbane Roar FC 1-0 at Suncorp on Saturday.

In a positive for the Roar, returning fan-favourite Henrique showed glimpses of his best in a 20-minute cameo.  



Melbourne Victory 3-0 Adelaide United

An own goal to Taylor Regan set the Big V on their way before Leroy George netted a stunning free-kick to make it 2-0.

For the Reds, after just nine minutes of the second half, half-time substitute Džengis Čavušević saw red.

And it proved costly, with Besart Berisha tapping in a third just four minutes later as Victory cruised to an easy win.
