NYC: Sea Eagles v Tigers match report

The Sea Eagles NYC have recorded their second win of the season, defeating last year’s NYC premiers, Wests Tigers at Blue tongue Stadium.

The boys in maroon and white were at their attacking best and even more devastating in defence. The Tigers looked certain to score on a number of occasions but the home side were up to the task, keeping their opponents relatively quiet in the first half.

Manly prop forward Jake Trbojevic crashed through the Tigers' defence to open the scoring for his side.
When Dylan Kelly made a break, the support play of hooker Michael Stig proved a pearler as he sliced through the line to take his side out to a 12-0 lead.

The Sea Eagles went into half time leading by eight and when Sam Short sliced through two defenders after the break, the home side was well and truly on top.

Manly had dominated the majority of the match and when centre Clinton Gutherson picked up the grubber kick from the Tigers to run the length of the field, the Sea Eagles were home and hosed as they led 24-4 on the hour mark.

Charlie Taylor piled on more pain for the Tigers, pouncing as a high ball from Short was allowed to bounce in goal.

The Tigers managed to pin back two trys through powerful second-rower Salesi Funaki but, although impressive, they were nothing but consolation as Manly proved too good on the night, taking vistory 28-16.

The Bulldogs Holden Cup side have this afternoon registered their third victory from four starts after a 36-32 victory over the Rabbitohs.

A Patrick Templeman try with four minutes remaining proved to be the game breaker as both sides were locked at 32-all throughout the final 10 minutes.

Coach Andy Patmore didn’t make any changes to his side named earlier in the week.

The opening 10 minutes saw the Bulldogs totally dominate proceedings with three tries to kick start the match. In just the third minute the Rabbitohs made an error coming out of their own end which handed the Bulldogs possession just 40m out. The Rabbitohs were on a mission to hold the home side out but it was on the last where a Patrick Templeman cross-kick was snatched out of the air from Pio Seci to score. Templeman converted beautifully from five metres in from touch, with the early score 6-nil.

From the kick-off the Bulldogs made their way up the centre but as soon as they shifted it wide it was Dylan Rintoul who slipped through the gap and into open space. As he approached the fullback he had a flying Templeman on the inside and Rintoul got the ball to him and the fullback ran the remaining 30m to go in under the posts. He converted his own try with the score now 12-nil after eight minutes.

It was almost an identical set to follow from the kick-off with Rintoul again slipping through but on this occasion finding captain Moses Mbye on the inside who ran 40m untouched going in under the uprights. Templeman again converted making it the ideal start and an 18-nil lead after 10 minutes.

The tide soon turned with the Rabbitohs getting their fair amount of possession and answering back with three tries of their own. It basically came through the 23-33 minute mark and got the red and greens back into the match. Tries to Nick Hedley, Christian Hazard and Jackson Garlick. Two of the tries were converted by fullback Will Paterson with the Bulldogs lead reduced to two points, 18-16.

Patmore must’ve sent down a number of stern messages because the young pups answered right back with two tries before the break with Pio Seci going over for his second of the afternoon and his opposite winger Costner Lemafa also went over with Templeman converting and one of those and the Bulldogs going to the break leading 28-16.

The second half opened with both sides going against each other but unable to crack through for any points. The Rabbitohs eventually went through to score two tries and come back to within two points again, 28-26.

When the Bulldogs were looking to get back into it the Rabbitohs went in again and hit the lead for the first time in the match. With the try converted it was now a four point lead, 32-28.

With the 10 minutes to go in the match Dylan Rintoul went across for his first

try of the afternoon in the south-east corner. Templeman couldn’t convert with the scores level at 32-all.

With the Rabbitohs on the attack they looked certain to score and off the back of their bust they came to Templeman at the back and when the Rabbitohs looked to pass on the inside Templeman’s outstretched hand caught the ball and he then raced 85m untouched to score and break the deadlock. He was unable to convert, giving the Rabbitohs a chance in the closing stages but the young pups held on for a 36-32 victory and locked in their third victory from four starts. 


Young Broncos Fall Short Of Storm

THE NRMA Insurance Brisbane Broncos NYC side have fallen just short of Melbourne Storm 28-24 in their Good Friday clash at Suncorp Stadium.

Both Storm and the Broncos scored five tries a piece, with inaccurate goal kicking proving to be the difference between the sides.

Melbourne raced to an early 12-nil lead, Brisbane came back to reduce the deficit to 18-10 at halftime.

After the break, Brisbane were gifted a perfect start to the second half due to a Storm mistake close to the line from a Kodi Nikorima kick.

From the scrum, Brisbane spread the ball out to the left and found an overlap allowing winger Paul Byrnes to score unopposed.

Cameron Cullen missed the conversion but it mattered little as the young Broncos scored again on the next set.

Paul Byrnes crossed for his second try thanks to good lead up work from Ajuma Adams, Cullen’s conversion attempt was waved away and the score remained 18-all in the 46th minute.

The parity on the scoreboard didn’t last long as a slick backline movement by Melbourne opened up Brisbane’s right side defence allowing halfback Corey McGrady to score, taking the Storm back to a 22-18 lead in the 50th minute.

Melbourne blew numerous chances to extend their lead and Brisbane made them pay 11 minutes from fulltime.

Brisbane interchange Ashley Taylor poked a grubber kick behind Melbourne’s line which was scooped up by Paul Byrnes, with the winger then delivering a perfectly times ball to Ajuma Adams to score.

Cullen nailed the difficult conversion to hand Brisbane the lead for the first time in the match at 24-22.

Their lead didn’t last long however as the Storm hit back with a try in the corner to Denny Solomona – his third of the night.

The try was converted and Melbourne snatched back their lead at 28-24.

Brisbane rallied late in their attempt to steal back the lead, but Melbourne held firm to chalk up their fourth win of the NYC season.

After a bright first-half start, which yielded a number of scoring opportunities for Brisbane, it was Melbourne who struck first on the scoreboard.

Back to back Storm tries in the 11th minute, and again from the restart in the 14th minute, provided the visitors an ideal start to the match with a 12-nil lead.

The score threatened to blow out against the home side, but the young Broncos held their ground and were able to pull back two tries of their own.

Brisbane’s first try of the afternoon belonged to Caleb Timu, who scored his sixth try of the season after powering over from close range.

Cameron Cullen converted to make it 12-6 and then Brisbane scored again straight from the kick off.

Coming into the side as a late inclusion, Corey Oates broke through the Storm defensive line and found himself in open space.

He then turned on the afterburners in a race towards the try line against Storm fullback Denny Solomona, but the Brisbane centre was too quick and strong to be stopped.

The conversion attempt was missed and the Storm held a 12-10 lead in the 26th minute.

Storm struck back 10 minutes before halftime when Solomona grabbed his second try to take the score to 18-10, which it remained until halftime. 


I watched this game, very entertaining. Templeman has a bright future

The St George Illawarra Dragons National Youth Competition team were defeated 36-24 by the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Sharks Stadium, Cronulla on Saturday.

The Young Dragons scored five tries in the local derby but it was not enough for the two-points.

Head Coach Justin Holbrook had opted to standby his line-up announced midweek which meant prop Julian Flego bowed out at 18th man.

The Red-and-Whites proved the stronger of the two when play commenced and found themselves seizing the lead seven minutes into the encounter.

Dragons fullback Yaw Kiti Glymin had been the beneficiary of some neat passing on the right edge which allowed the custodian to score first try of the game.

Halfback Shannon Crook converted to make it 6-nil.

However the lead was short-lived with the hosts soon equalising through halfback Jake Walsh converted try ten minutes later.

The Red V continued pressing forward and found themselves reclaiming the lead through centre Charly Runciman four minutes later.

Crook was again on strike to make it 12-6.

Yet the home side equalised four minutes later for the second time in the game through the efforts of hooker Fa’amanu Brown’s try and Walsh’s conversion.

The pair teamed-up a further two times to give the Sharks a 24-12 lead at the break.

Sharks utility Kieron Rollinson extended the host’s lead when second-half play resumed shortly after the break with Walsh converting to make it 30-12.

But the Dragons struck back prior to the hour mark through prop Kem Seru who charged and barged his way over the stripe adjacent to left corner marker.

Dragons prop Wesley Lolo followed suit moments later score his first try wearing the Red V to claw the deficit back to 30-20.

Lolo fired through the home side’s defence to get his second of the evening and get the Red-and-Whites to within a converted try of their hosts.

Unfortunately, Holbrook’s men were undone on the whistle by the pairing of Brown and Walsh, who teamed-up again for the fourth time to gift the Sharks a 36-24 win.

St George Illawarra Dragons: 24. Tries: W Lolo (2), Glymin, Runciman, Seru. Goals: Crook (2/5). 


Panthers NYC record another big victory

The Panthers NYC team have continued their perfect start to season 2013 with another dominant display, beating the Gold Coast Titans 40-12 at Centrebet Stadium. In what were great conditions for rugby league the Panthers' second half performance set up the victory.

The Panthers opened the scoring through outstanding youngster Dallin Watene-Zelezniak when he was able to score a great individual try, seemingly out of nowhere. Getting the ball on the wing Watene-Zelezniak ran in field and with speed and strength broke a few tackles and ran 30 metres to register the Panthers first try.

The first half proved to be quite an even contest with both sides creating chances and defending their try line strongly. As the Panthers clawed to a lead the Titans hit back and at half time the scores were level at 12 all.

Coming out in the second half it was the Titans who made the early running with a number of attacking sets inside the Panthers' 20 metre zone. To the Panthers' credit they refused to crack and when they were able to get some possession and field position they turned on the attack.

With halves Daniel Foster and Bryce Cartwright running the show they linked well with two of the Panthers' lethal backline; Moss and Watene-Zelezniak scoring 3 quick tries between them to set up a match-winning lead. Foster then did it all himself in the 71st minute when he sliced through from close range to score his second of the day.

To round out the scoring Watene-Zelezniak displayed his elusiveness as he crossed for his hat-trick and in the process he bought up 40 points for the Panthers.

Bryce Cartwright was very strong playing in the halfback position setting up tries with some delightful inside balls and he even threw in a chip-and- chase that led to a Kieran Moss try. The Panthers are sure to be pleased with their defensive effort, after restricting the Titans to only two tries and hold them scoreless from the 35th minute.

Penrith Panthers 40; Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Daniel Foster, Kieran Moss, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Kieran Moss, Daniel Foster, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak. Goals; Bryce Cartwright 6/7.

The Canberra Raiders NYC team pulled off a last minute miracle at Hunter Stadium this afternoon, as they scored as the full time siren sounded to pull off a 30-26 comeback win.

The Raiders looked down and out at 22-8 in the second half, but some brilliance from the elusive Anthony Milford allowed the Green Machine to get back into the match and go on and win.

Milford was magic for the Raiders scoring two tries and having a hand in several others, with his goal kicking the difference as Knights kicker Lachlan Shipard had a horror day with the boot.

The Knights opened the scoring through Joseph Tapine when he crossed in the corner after just five minutes, with the conversion from Lachlan Shipard missing for an early 4-0 lead.

Shipard then involved himself in the play when the winger scored in the corner for an 8-0 lead, after his second conversion from the sideline also missed the mark.

An incident soon after saw the Raiders lose a player for 10 minutes to the sin bin for a fight, while Knights Jackson Hill was sent from the field for the remainder of the match.

The extra space created for both teams worked to the Raiders advantage as Anthony Milford crossed for Canberra, but the livewire Milford missed his first attempt at goal and the Knights held on to an 8-4 lead.

The Knights bounced back though with their third try through Fullback Honeti Tuha, as he showed his strength to score. Shipard missed another attempt, but the Knights now led 12-4 after 30 minutes.

Shipard scored his second try of the afternoon to extend the lead to 16-4 and when he missed his third goal the Knights took that lead into halftime.

Brenko Lee used his power and strength to get the Raiders on the board first in the second half, with the missed goal making it 16-8 and the Raiders were back in the match.

But the celebrations were short lived when Tom Rouse scored for the Knights. Shipard finally landed a conversion and it was now 22-8 to the Knights.

The Raiders comeback commenced when the Raiders scored under the posts, with Anthony Milford converting to bring the score line within reach at 22-14.

Milford then showed some individual brilliance to out run the defence to score his second try and when he converted it was back to a two point game at 22-20.

The Raiders then took the lead when fullback Jack Creith scored and although the conversion missed the mark the Raiders led for the first time at 24-22.

But the Knights scored a try with just over four minutes remaining through their fullback Honeti Tuha, after he raced 80m to score from an intercept. The conversion missed the mark but the Knights were back in front at 26-24.
