John Sila for the bulldogs has been on fire first two games

[h=1]NYC Fight Back for Victory[/h]

Thursday 14 March 2013 7:36 PM
The Bulldogs have this afternoon defeated the Parramatta Eels 32-24 this afternoon at ANZ Stadium. After trailing 18-12 at half-time the Bulldogs dominated the second half to register their second successive victory.

It was John Sila again who starred scoring four tries to back up his three he scored last week.

There was just the one change to the NYC starting side with James Ralphs coming into the starting side and David Minute going back to the interchange bench.

It wasn’t an ideal start for the Bulldogs with Patrick Templeman kicking out on the full and gifting the Eels possession from the half-way line. The blue and gold’s didn’t waste the chance and were able to go over for the opening try of the match. Five-eighth Mitchell Brasington was able to convert putting the Eels out to a 6-nil lead after just two minutes of play.

Five minutes later the Bulldogs answered back through fullback Templeman. An Eels mistake gave the Bulldogs the ball just 35m out from the Eels line. Just three plays into the set five-eighth Moses Mbye took the ball to the line and threw a cut-out ball to Templeman who went over. He couldn’t convert his own try with the score now 6-4.
Two converted tries to the Eels in the 12th and 19th put them further in front. The first went to John Folau and the second to Isaiah Mosese that left the score at 18-4.

The Bulldogs were able to answer back with two tries of their own through wingers John Sila and Dylan Rintoul. Templeman couldn’t convert either try with the score left at 18-12 after 29 minutes.
That was the score as the half-time siren went and both sides made their way to the rooms to be addressed by their respective Coaches.
Coach Andy Patmore must have got his message across with the Bulldogs totally dominating the second half and going on to record their second successive victory.
Four second half tries to the Eels one was the difference. It was down the left hand side that the Bulldogs caused their most damage with Sila and Wilson the benefactors.

The Bulldogs will travel to Melbourne next Thursday to take on the Storm looking to get their third victory in a row.

[h=1]Young Broncos Go Down[/h]

Friday 15 March 2013 7:09 PM
THE NRMA Insurance Broncos under-20s have gone down 40-28 to the Dragons in Wollongong tonight.
The Young Dragons were on the front foot early, with centre Charly Runciman narrowly denied as he reached out for the line in the second minute of play.
The visitors took advantage of the missed opportunity, opening the scoring through second-rower Caleb Timu nine minutes in.
Broncos halfback Cameron Cullen converted to give his side a 6-nil lead.
The Dragons immediately hit back, however, with prop Jackson Merritt charging across adjacent to the posts just minutes later, with halfback Shannon Crook’s conversion giving tying the scores at 6-all.
This was followed by centre Charly Runciman dotting down in the same position in the 27th minute, after some quick ball movement in the lead-up.
Second-rower Luke Dodge toed through a loose offload from interchange forward Taylor Brown, and regathered to send his outside man in for the spoils, giving Crook another easy conversion after 27 minutes.
The Broncos managed to lock the scores up right on the siren, however, with Timu collecting his second on the right side.
The Young Dragons came out of the resumption firing, with lock Kal Collins flying onto a ball close to the line three minutes into the second stanza.
This triggered the start of a scoring spree for the Red-and-Whites, who crossed in the 51st minute via a dummy-half effort from fullback Yaw Kiti Glymin.
Crook added the extras before getting in on the tryscoring himself, crossing in the left-hand corner after his bomb was re-gathered by winger Kayne Brennan.
Not content to let the backs do all the scoring, prop Kem Seru added his name to the scorers’ list with a barge-over try in the 62nd minute, with Crook’s conversion extending the margin to 34-12 with 18 minutes to play.
The visitors managed to interrupt the flow through a try to fullback Kurt Capewell, but Dragons backrower Dodge ran in from 30 metres out to continue the Red-and-White procession in the 67th minute.
Late consolations to Broncos backs Paul Byrnes and Tom Opacic reduced the margin to 40-24, giving the Young Dragons their first win of 2013.
Dragons 40 defeated Broncos 28.
St George Illawarra Dragons 40. Tries: Merritt, Runciman, Collins, Glymin, Crook, Seru, Dodge. Goals: Crook (6/7)
Brisbane Broncos 28. Tries: Timu (2), Capewell, Byrnes, Opacic. Goals: Cullen (4/5)

It was a welcome return home for round 1 of season 2013 with the NYC North Queensland Toyota Cowboys staging a healthy 26-16 win over the Melbourne Storm.
Apart from a late surge by the Storm, the match belonged to the Cowboys who dominated field position, defended well and controlled the ball effectively for most of the match.
Starting strongly, the home team pressured the Storm line several times for little result.
Sustained pressure soon gave way to points though when Patrick Kaufusi scored the first home game try for the season and by half time the Cowboys led 14-0.
The second half began with the Storm finding the line just minutes after kick off, but that was to be their only joy until late in the game as the Cowboys once again dominated play to build a commanding 26-4 lead by the 66th minute.
Only a two-try late surge by the Storm closed the gap to 10 points.
NYC North Queensland Toyota Cowboys 26 (Patrick Kaufusi, Zac Santo, Alex Grant, Brady Williams, Samsen O’Neill tries, Sam Foster 3 goals) d NYC Melbourne Storm 16 (Dane Chang, Cory McGrady, Rhys Kennedy tries, Billy Brittain 2 goals) 


[h=1]NYC boys claim last-gasp victory.. again[/h]
Saturday 16 March 2013 5:00 PM
The young Roosters have claimed another last-gasp victory with Brendan Elliot again proving the difference with two late tries to see his side come from nowhere to make it two from two so far this season.
Five-eighth Samisoni Langi and his halves partner Tyler Cornish were the standouts for Paul Green's side, with the young playmakers turning the Warriors around when it mattered and keeping their side in the game.
Match Report
The teams were welcomed to the turf with some light rain this evening, suggesting the usually fast-paced NYC style may not be in store for the Eden Park crowd and the early minutes certainly showed both sides were playing it a little bit safer than usual through the middle of the park.
The young Roosters kicked off to a Warriors side looking to repent following last weekend’s 38 point loss to Parramatta and the early minutes were a physical meeting of two big forward packs, with some errors around the ruck slipping in to both sides games thanks to the rain.
Dummy half Jason Antonelli was strong through the opening minutes, guiding the mobile Roosters side around the park with his speed and vision out of dummy half.
It took 10 minutes for the first penalty to be awarded, with our boys given a chance just 20m out thanks to a quick-thinking John Asiata who targeted a lazy defender to gain the advantage.
The ball was kicked to touch and thanks again to a hard-running Asiata in the next set of six, they were able to shift the ball from one side of the field to the other eventuating in Tyler Cornish using some fancy footwork to find a gap and cross for the first try.
The Warriors questioning the try, thanks to the new ‘challenge system’ in the NYC this season, however the video referee found no issues with the halfback’s put down and Brendan Elliot was un able to convert, with the score remaining at 4-0 after 11 minutes.
The momentum wasn’t with the Roosters long however, with prop Brandon Tago putting the ball down as he ran into the Warriors defensive line from the kick off. A brave Roosters defence were able to hold out the Warriors from the scrum and also work a penalty out of the frustrated Warriors right-side defence.
The penalty didn’t eventuate in anything however, with Cornish losing the ball close to the line after being hit in a hard tackle as he again attempted to dance around the big Warriors midfield.
As the first twenty minutes came to a close the Kiwi side began to find some rhythm in attack and threatening the Roosters line only to again cough up the ball and finish with another uncompleted set.
Warriors 0 - Roosters 4
20th minute
It wasn’t long before the next points were scored in the match with experienced NYC campaigners Samisoni Langi and Rhyse Martin linking down the right-edge to see Martin cross, following the Roosters capitalising on another mistake from the Warriors who were starting to show signs of the same side that went down to the Eels in Round 1.
It didn’t seem that way for too long however, with a big hit in the midfield forcing Asiata to lose possession as the Sydney side worked its way back up towards the Warriors line and the scrum following laying the platform for a couple of solid runs through the Roosters defence and an eventual try down the left-hand side to the Warriors seeing them on the scoreboard for the first time in the match.
The try was converted by Mason Lino and the lead cut down to 10-6 after 26 minutes.
With the game beginning to open up and the Roosters becoming a little bit more confident in their ability to spread the ball from side to side, it was Martin again leading from the front after a perfectly weighted pass from Cornish hit the backrower and sent him through a hole 20m out from the Warriors line.
Ngataua Hukatai, the Warriors fullback, did his best to cut down the flying skipper however had no luck as fended him away to cross for his second of the match. Elliot’s kick failed to go over the black dot and the score remained at 14-6 after 33 minutes.
The Warriors lifted in the dying moments of the first half and managed to work their way down field after opening up their attack to the edges and forcing Roosters defenders into one on one situations on both sides of the field.
A penalty goal in the last play of the half saw Lino cut down the lead for our boys to just 6 points at the break.
Warriors 8 - Roosters 14
40th minute
The Warriors came out firing in the second half with early chances forcing the Roosters to defend their line for the opening five minutes. A brave showing shut the Warriors attack down and a shift in momentum came back the Roosters way when Langi broke through the midfield and a penalty was awarded at the following tackle in the set.
The next set of six was kicked off with a hard-running Shaquille Blair getting the Tricolours even closer to the Warriors line, with Cornish dancing his way through again for the try to be disallowed for obstruction.
The very next set and the Warriors were down the other end of the field, thanks to some ill-discipline from the Roosters outside backs and off the back of the penalty they shifted the ball out to the left and the big Abraham Papali crossed in the corner for the Kiwi side. Lino converted to make it a tied game at 14-all after 48 minutes.
It was all Warriors in the third quarter of the match with the Roosters allowing mistakes to creep into their game, forcing themselves into defending their line on numerous occasions and only being saved by some poor decisions from the home side on the final tackle.
Langi was the standout in the twenty minute period after the break, doing his best to guide the side around the field through boot and hand and linking well with his halves partner Cornish when the attacking chances presented themselves.
Warriors 14 – Roosters 14
60th minute
It was all the Warriors in the opening minutes of the final period, with their big men finding space down the left and ride edges against the much smaller Roosters outside backs.
With just 5 minutes remaining the Warriors took the lead 20-14 and the match seemed all but over, until last week’s final-minute hero Brendan Elliot managed to cross for not one, but two tries to see the Roosters claim the win 24-20.
Samisoni Langi was the stand out for the Roosters in their Eden Park win, guiding the side around the paddock and linking well with halfback Tyler Cornish and his big men in the middle of the field.
The win means Paul Green’s side are two from two so far this season, after last week also claiming the victory in the final stages against Souths.
Warriors 20 – Roosters 24
