[h=1]Rabbitohs Go Down in Holden Cup to Roosters in Controversial Circumstances[/h] Words: Jeremy Monahan I Photo:

Thursday 7 March 2013 7:53 PM
The Sydney Roosters have scored a highly controversial victory in the opening Holden Cup match of the season, defeating the South Sydney Rabbitohs 26 points to 24 after the final siren.
The Roosters were tackled in front of the uprights, about 15 metres out from the Rabbitohs line when the game clock appeared to hit zero, yet the siren was not sounded, giving them the extra play in which they scored.
Five-eighth Dylan Walker played a starring role for the Rabbitohs, scoring two tries and four goals for a personal tally of 16 points.
The Rabbitohs opened the scoring in the fourth minute through second-rower Brad Croad who displayed good, hard, straight running close to the line to score. Walker converted to give the Rabbitohs an early six point lead.
Ten minutes later the Roosters scored their first four-pointer through winger Graeme Su'a Poe in the left corner.
The Roosters took the lead for the first time when replacement forward Jack Noble scored the first of three tries in the 23rd minute. The Rabbitohs were gifting the tricolours possession and field position with ill-discipline, leading to the points. Brendan Elliott converted to give the home side a 10-6 lead.
Elliott kicked a penalty goal in the 27th minute to extend the lead to six before the Rabbitohs struck back.
Walker scored his first try three minutes before half time, charging 40 metres down the left hand touch line to score a great individual try. Walker converted his own try to level the scores at 12-all at half time.
It was Walker that gave the Rabbitohs back the lead in the second half, scoring again four minutes after the break. He slipped through the defence from close range, touching down adjacent to the left hand upright. He converted again to give the Rabbitohs an 18-12 lead.
Noble scored again in the 62nd minute with Elliott's conversion levelling the scores at 18-all.
Another Elliott penalty goal in the 71st minute would restore the Roosters' lead, before the Rabbitohs would snatch it back three minutes later.
Centre Tyrone Phillips beat three defenders on the right side to score out wide, and Walker converted to give the Rabbitohs a 24-20 lead with less than five minutes left on the clock.
One-on-one strips by both sides gave both sets of fans heart palpatations, and then the controversy began.
With the clock on zero and the ball having not yet been played, the siren did not sound and the referee let play continue, clearly not realising the game was over.
The Roosters put up a cross field kick on that play, which was bobbled backwards and forwards, with Noble ending up with the ball, touching down and being awarded a try. This levelled the scores at 24-all, before Elliott put a swinging conversion attempt through the posts to steal the win.
The Rabbitohs can feel unlucky at losing this game, but will have 11 days to turn it around before taking on the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks on Monday-week at ANZ Stadium in round two.
Sydney Roosters 26 (Jack Noble 3, Graeme Su'a Poe tries; Brendan Elliott 5 goals)
South Sydney Rabbitohs 24 (Dylan Walker 2, Brad Croad, Tyrone Phillips tries; Dylan Walker 4 goals) 


[h=1]NYC Broncos Sneak Home Over Sea Eagles[/h] Brad Gardner
Bronco Media

Friday 8 March 2013 6:11 PM
The Brisbane Broncos under 20s have rallied from behind to beat Manly 30-28 at Suncorp Stadium.
The Broncos look finished when Manly sprinted away midway through the game to post three tries in the space of 15 minutes, taking what appeared to be a winning 28-12 16 lead.
But the Broncos burst through Manly's defences for four tries in 10 minutes due in large part to great work by hooker Cameron Cullen, who had a direct hand in setting up two of the tries.
Winger Jack Schaffer crossed down the sideline in the 66th minute to reduce the margin to 16-28. Cullen then put through second rower Caleb Timu for his second try 12 minutes out from full time to reduce the margin to 20-28.
Cullen then broke through Manly's defences in the 70th minute to set up halfback Kodi Nikorima for the second of his two tries.
The Broncos capitalised on some Manly errors, using a knock-on from the Sea Eagles to set up a match-levelling try to lock Benjamin Garcia with less than five minutes on the clock.
Cullen then converted to give the Broncos a 30-28 lead.
Earlier, Manly crossed for its first try of the match in the 10th minute through lock Luke Bartley. The Broncos struck back in the 22nd minute through Nikorima, but Manly took a 10-6 halftime lead thanks to a try to centre Latrell Schaumkel.
The Broncos snatched the lead early in the second half after a knock-on from Manly next to its own line allowed Timu to cross in the 42nd minute.
Manly hit back almost immediately, with second rower Dylan Kelly crossing three minutes later to take the score to 16-12.
Manly five eighth Will Pearsell then capped off some good work in the halves by crossing 26 minutes out from full time.
The lead blew out to 28-12 after Manly prop Jake Trobjevic ran over the Broncos defence in the 58th minute.
It would be the last time the Sea Eagles would score, however, with the Broncos dominating the last 20 minutes of play.
Broncos best - Cullen, Nikorima, Molo, Timu
Manly best - Pearsell, Trobjevic, Bartley
Broncos 30 (Nikorima 2, Timu 2, Schaffer, Garcia tries; Paia'Aua 1/1, Cullen 2/5 goals) defeated Sea Eagles 28 (Bartley, Schaumkel, Kelly, Pearsall, Trbojevic tries; Gutherson 4/5 goals) 


[h=1]NYC Open with Comprehensive Victory Over Cowboys[/h]

Saturday 9 March 2013 6:00 PM
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Holden Cup side have this afternoon accounted for the North Queensland Cowboys 40-20 at Bluetongue Stadium, Gosford.
The stand-outs were John Sila with a hat-trick of tries and both Moses Mbye and Dylan Rintoul scoring two tries each.
It was an ideal start with two tries in the opening eight minutes. It was five-eighth Moses Mbye who crossed for both of the tries in what looked to be an ominous sign for the Cowboys. The first came in the fourth minute with Mbye taking the ball to the line and with a big left foot step found himself in open space and diving over to score next to the left hand upright. Fullback Patrick Templeman converted to lead 6-nil.
Four minutes later it was again Mbye but it was off the back of a spiral bomb from halfback Jaline Graham that was left to bounce from the Cowboys and Mbye picked up the loose ball to score under the posts. Templeman easily converted with the lead now out to 12-nil.
The visitors answered back quickly with their opening try in the 13th minute. It was centre Javid Bowen who was sent into open space after a quality ball from halfback Sam Foster. The centre ran 15m untouched to score five metres in from the eastern touchline. Bowen couldn’t convert his own try with the score now 12-4.
Just five minutes later the scoreboard operator was in use again. It was for the Bulldogs third try, this time to winger John Sila. It was a silky backline move through the hands of Graham, Templeman and on to Sila who ran the 10m untouched to go over in the north-west corner. Templeman couldn’t convert from out wide with the score 16-4.
The match was being played from end to end and the next points went to the Cowboys. It was scored through lock forward Chris Greusmuhl under the uprights. Halfback Foster converted and the score was 16-10 after 24 minutes.
In the 30th minute Sila crossed for his second four-pointer of the afternoon after receiving a swift cut-out ball from Templeman. The fullback couldn’t convert with the score 20-10.
The tries were flowing and it was Dylan Rintoul on the right wing who was the finisher of the Bulldogs fifth try. A mistake from the Cowboys gave the blue and whites a fresh set of six and on just the second play they shifted the ball to the right and Rintoul went over in the north-east corner. Templeman couldn’t convert as the scoreboard read 24-10.
On the stroke of half-time the Cowboys went over for their third try of the afternoon through fullback Zac Santo. Foster couldn’t convert and the Bulldogs went to the sheds leading 24-14.
Two tries in the opening 13 minutes of the half through Sila and James Ralphs extended the Bulldogs lead. With both tries converted by Templeman the lead was out to 36-14.
The Cowboys answered back in the 55th minute through five-eighth Alex Grant. Damon Taurou-Rau-hihi made a bust up the middle and haded it off to Grant who ran 15m to score. Try was converted by Foster and the score was now 36-20.
A second try to Rintoul in the 67th minute were the final points with the young Bulldogs holding on to a 40-20 victory.
BULLDOGS 40 (Mbye 2, Sila 3, Rintoul 2, Ralphs Tries; Templeman 4 Goals) def. COWBOYS 20 (Bowen, Gruesmuhl, Santo, Grant Tries; Foster 2 Goals)

[h=1]Round 1: NYC Holden Cup Report[/h] Ralph Tucker

Saturday 9 March 2013 4:47 PM
The Pirtek Parramatta Eels have got off to a flying start to this season's Holden Cup with a stunning 46-8 victory over the New Zealand Warriors at Parramatta Stadium.
The overwhelming victory was set up in the opening 40 minutes as the Eels overcame an early defensive lapse to run in six sizzling tries, none better than a sparkling individual effort from halfback Zach Dockar-Clay just prior to the halftime interval.
It was Dockar-Clay's second in the first half after originally crossing in the 14th minute to get Parramatta on the scoreboard. Vai Toutai also bagged a double with some powerhouse running close to the line. Kelepi Tanginoa and Takai Moeakiola completed the first half try scoring blitz as the Eels went to the break leading by 32-4.
Probably the most pleasing aspect for coach Andrew Webster to take out of the game was the second half defensive effort which saw the young Eels withstand some strong attacking raids by the very physical Warriors attack and just the one try conceded.
After a scrappy start to the second 40 minutes Mitchell Brasington opened the scoring with a classy try, Moeakiola crossed for his second and John Folau put the icing on the blue and gold cake with an impressive late four-pointer to complete the nine tries to two demolition over the shell shocked Warriors outfit.
Parramatta Eels 46 (Vai Toutai 2, Zach Dockar-Clay 2, Takai Moeakiola 2, Kelepi Tanginoa, Mitchell Brasington, John Folau tries; Mitchell Brasington 5 goals)
New Zealand Warriors 8 (Vili Lolohea, Ngataua Hukatai tries)


Mbye and Sila have been training with the top squad. Big wraps on Templeman too

[h=1]Raiders NYC falls to Penrith[/h] Steven Russo I

Sunday 10 March 2013 1:30 PM
The Canberra Raiders Holden Cup side has had a disappointing start to their 2013 season falling to the Panthers this afternoon Centrebet Stadium this afternoon.
The Green Machine showed momentary flashes of brilliance in attack throughout the game but this was overshadowed by some uncharacteristic defensive lapses on the fringes which provided the Panthers with a number of successful scoring opportunities.
The Panthers opened the scoring in the fifth minute when five eighth Daniel Foster sliced through to set up winger Jarred Wilson out on the right flank. Back rower Bryce Cartwright missed the conversion and the score was 4-0.
The home side then dominated possession for the next 10 minutes and this eventually yielded results with halfback Sam Scarlett scoring on the back of a nice offload from Cartwright. Cartwright then converted the try.
The Raiders looked like striking back three minutes later when Peter Irwin flew above the pack to field a cross field kick from Mitch Cornish, however, the winger lost control of the ball just before touching down.
Irwin made up for that mistake almost immediately crossing for a try on the left hand touch line in the 19th minute after a nice backline movement involving Cornish and centre Anthony Milford. Unfortunately, Milford’s conversion attempt was waved away, 12-4.
The Raiders were on the back foot immediately after scoring though when Penrith’s kick off went dead forcing a line drop out. The Panthers capitalised on that opportunity scoring a converted try through back rower James Dunley.
That lead was extended to 18 points in the 31st minute when some uncharacteristically flimsy defence saw interchange forward Pat Hollis grab a simple try adjacent to the left hand post. Iszah Yeo was the next to get on the scoresheet for the Panthers when he planted the ball down for a converted try and a 28-4 lead at halftime.
The second half didn’t start well for the Green Machine with Penrith winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak scoring 6 minutes after the resumption.
The Raiders managed to reduce the deficit in the 51st minute when a nice inside pass from Cornish created a try for Milford. The centre duly converted his try and the score was 34-10.
The talented Queenslander got his second try less than 10 metres later after fullback Jack Creith put the Raiders on the attack with a nice break from within his own half.
Jeff Lynch looked to have scored a third consecutive try the Raiders after he was put into a yawning gap by five eighth Jordan Worboys in the 72nd minute. However, Worboys’ pass was controversially ruled forward.
Penrith centre George Jennings capped off a difficult afternoon for Canberra when he raced 70 metres to score under the posts after swooping on a loose ball from Milford two minutes out from fulltime. Watene Zeleniak got the conversion setting up the final score line of 40-16.

[h=1]NYC Report Wests Tigers 22 Knights 12[/h] By Wayne Cousins

Monday 11 March 2013 4:55 PM

Wests Tigers have opened the 2013 Holden Cup season with a 22-12 victory over the Newcastle Knights at Hunter Stadium tonight.
Wests Tigers got off to a superb start when centre Leva Li was put into open space to step past the fullback to score next to the posts. Five-eighth Matt Mulcahy converted for a 6-0 lead.
The Knights looked set to score in the 23rd minute through forward Jeremy Ma'a from a short inside ball only to drop it in a tackle made by full-back Kurtis Rowe.
Newcastle were camped inside Wests Tigers quarter for a good 15 minutes before scoring a soft try from dummy half through hooker Adam Clydsdale. Winger Lachlan Shipard converted for a 6-all scoreline.
Talented Wests Tigers half-back Luke Brooks showed his class when he got on the outside of his man to race 65 metres to score in the corner in the 47th minute. Mulcahy converted for a 10-6 lead.
The Knights drew level three minutes later when a crossfield kick on the last tackle by Clydsdale saw winger Jake Mamo leap high to take the ball to score. Shipard converted the try to give Newcastle a 12-10 lead.
Newcastle were denied a try to Jah Pakau a few minutes later when he lost the ball under the posts in trying to score in a three man tackle.
Wests Tigers took advantage in the next set when captain and prop Kyle Lovett showed great pace to race downfield to be held up over the line in a desperate tackle by winger Jake Mamo.
A minute later, a nice break by winger Delouise Hoeter saw him in open space to link up with full-back Kurtis Rowe who raced away untouched to score. Mulcahy converted to give Wests Tigers a 16-12 lead.
Wests Tigers put on another try shortly after when talented young replacement hooker Manaia Rudolph found open space to send Mulcahy over. He converted his own try for a 22-12 lead.
