LOSS 12-14

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have been defeated by the Sydney Roosters in a close 12-14 encounter in their Round 18 clash tonight (Friday) at Allianz Stadium. The Roosters win sees their side take home the Ron Coote Cup. Head Coach Michael Maguire named an unchanged side heading into the Round 18 clash with high hopes of a similar performance to the previous week. The start of the game was rocky for the Rabbitohs with the Roosters side putting pressure on South Sydney’s defence. But the Rabbitohs returned the game play mirroring the Roosters efforts. The game labelled as one with fierce rivalry started to show on the field with both sides displaying exertions of aggression and passion. With 20 minutes flying off the clock, the Roosters were the first to add points when Joseph Manu planted the ball down over the try line from a short but well-placed Jake Friend grubber. Fullback Michael Gordon converted and the Roosters led six points to zero. Despite falling behind, the efforts of the Rabbitohs didn’t go unnoticed, holding a 100% completion rate and possession to an even 50/50. Yet the odds would not go in favour of the Rabbitohs once again when they gave away a penalty in front of goals for hands in the ruck. Gordon easily converted and extended their lead eight points to zero. With minutes remaining in the first half, an impressive intercept by Adam Reynolds saw him fly down the field and run the ball 60 metres but an unlucky loose carry saw the Roosters gain back the possession and the Rabbitohs would run into the sheds trailing by eight points. The second half saw the Rabbitohs make it closer to the oppositions try line and in the 49th minute Robbie Farah scooped up the ball from dummy half and placed it down over the try line. Reynolds conversion slotted straight through the uprights and the Rabbitohs were on the board six points to the Roosters eight. The Rabbitohs converted try gave them some momentum and their tempo began to lift revving up the annoyance to the home crowd. As the aggression amped up, the home side delivered to their crowd scoring their second try under the posts through Aidan Guerra. A successful conversion kept the Rabbitohs to a six to 14 point difference. Crichton showed his skills in footwork dodging defenders as he made his way across the field to the left to pass off the ball to Bryson Goodwin who he too, stepped the defenders and slid over the try line to add four points. Reynolds kick was a green light and the Rabbitohs narrowed in on the Roosters lead. Once again the extra points had an affect on the boys in the Red and Green, and they continued to apply pressure to the Roosters defence. But the Roosters proved why they are 4th on the ladder and kept the Rabbitohs away from scoring any further points. The game would finish up with a close 12 to 14 points on the scoreboard with the Roosters defending their position in the lead.

U20 National Youth Holden Cup - Round 18

v Sydney Roosters, 5:35pm

DRAW 24-24

Late Changes - No one was trimmed 24 hours before the match. Hippi, Mougios and Rodwell were out. Johnstone started second row, Ta'avale on the bench.

The young Rabbitohs have fought out a tense and entertaining clash with the Sydney Roosters to draw the match 24-24 in a match that could have gone either way. The Rabbitohs U20s squad travelled to Allianz Stadium to take on the 13th-placed Sydney Roosters - Ryan Carr’s men hoping to continue their purple patch that had seen them collect five wins and a draw in their last six fixtures. The young Rabbitohs started brightly, targeting the Roosters right edge with good effect. However, two strong opportunities in the opening ten minutes went begging through handling errors. Tyrone Taukamo almost grabbed opening points after a Dean Hawkins grubber caused chaos in the Roosters in-goal. The Rabbitohs failure to convert their early chances would come back to haunt them as the goal line dropout was re-gathered by the Roosters who marched up field to score through Jarred Anderson. Sean O’Sullivan failed to add the extras and the Roosters took the early lead 4-0 after 14 minutes. It would take only sixty seconds for the Roosters to grab another try through Jesse Marschke after Sean O’Sullivan broke the line in the 15th minute. The Easts halfback would have no problem with the conversion this time and the Roosters would push out to a 10-0 advantage. Souths would find themselves on the back foot for the next ten minutes as the Easts forward pack continued to dominate the middle of the park. Looking for a spark, the young Rabbitohs would find it in the form of centre Mawene Hiroti who would cross on the left edge in the 24th minute. Hawkins would add the extras and the Rabbitohs claw the score back to 10-6. A brilliant try would follow in the 30th minute for the men in Red and Green. Beau Cordtz would slide into the attack on the left edge, grubber deep into the in-goal for Jalen Reweti, Reweti would knock the ball back into play for Cordtz who would recollect and score. Hawkins converted and the Rabbitohs grabbed a slim lead at 12-10. Beau Cordtz would continue to prove dynamic in attack with his short kicking game, forcing the Roosters into a repeat set on the 38th minute to create a good chance before halftime. Unable to capitalise with their set of six, the Roosters would get the ball back and draw a penalty just before the buzzer – however, Sean O’Sullivan couldn’t get the distance with his kick to convert. It was one way traffic in the opening ten minutes of the second half, with the Roosters seeing little ball and less time in our half of the field. However, the Rabbitohs couldn’t be clinical with all their field position and the Roosters grew back into the game. Roosters big man Victor Radley would snatch the lead back for the home side, latching onto a Lachlan Lam grubber and crashing through to ground. O’Sullivan would continue his poor night on the boot and hit the uprights with his conversion attempt. Roosters 14 – 12 Souths after 52 minutes. The Rabbitohs would snatch back the lead in the 60th minute through Jalen Reweti. The young winger would leap highest to claim a Dean Hawkins bomb on the Roosters line and score. Hawkins would convert and the Rabbitohs would lead 18-14. Jordan Mailata would push Souths further ahead after taking a short ball fifteen metres out from Roosters line - the 150kg prop proving unstoppable as he crashed over the line to score. Hawkins converted again and the Rabbitohs took a firm handle on the game leading 24-14 with 16 minutes to go. The Roosters would continue to take it to the young Rabbitohs, fighting for every metre of the Allianz Stadium turf. Their effort would be rewarded in the 75th minute as Adam Pompey got under a Sean O’Sullivan attacking bomb to score. O’Sullivan would miss the conversion. Souths 24-18 Roosters. A left edge break by Bernard Lewis would lead to another Roosters try in the 78th minute after the Easts winger put in a nice kick for O’Sullivan to score. O’Sullivan slotted his conversion kick to tie things up.

Reserve Grade - Intrust Super NSW Premiership Round 18

v Wyong, Morry Breen Oval, Kanwal, Sat Jul 8 3:30pm

WIN 22-6

Late Changes - Mociedreke, Rogers, Rudolf are out. Tasi starts left wing, Cherrington prop, Freebairn hooker, Turner lock Maula, Dietz and Whitelaw on the bench.

The North Sydney Bears returned to their best Intrust Super Premiership NSW form with an upset 22-6 win over competition leaders the Wyong Roos at Morry Breen Oval this afternoon. In easily their best performance in recent weeks, the Bears brought to an end Wyong’s unbeaten run of 12 matches stretching back to Round 4 to indicate that the premiership is not yet a foregone conclusion. It appeared to be business as usual for the Roos in the early exchanges when lock Justin Toomey-White strolled through poor Norths goal-line defence to score the opening try in the fifth minute. Josh Mantellato converted to give Wyong a 6-0 lead. A Mantellato dropped bomb in the 15th minute gave the visitors great field position from the scrum. The Bears took full advantage when, at the end of the set from the scrum, makeshift hooker Tom Freebairn crashed over under the posts. Eli Levido converted to level scores at 6-6. The Bears were able to grind their way on top as the arm wrestle continued through the last 20 minutes of the first half – and were rewarded four minutes from half-time when half Luke Kelly chip kicked over the top of the static Roos defence to regather and send winger Tautalatasi Tasi away to score behind the posts. Levido converted to give the Bears a deserved 12-6 lead at the break. A deft kicking game by Kelly and five-eighth Adam Doueihi kept the Roos pinned at their own end at the start of the second half, eventually conceding a 51st minute penalty for a leg pull at the ruck that Levido duly converted to extend the Bears’ lead to 14-6. As the second half wore on, the Roos’ usually crisp passing and running game was overshadowed by the Bears’ greater line speed and intensity. This led to Wyong giving away three successive penalties midway through the second half, before having to defend for a fourth successive set when Roos’ prop Eloni Vunakece was sin-binned by referee Ziggy Przeklasa-Adamski for a late tackle on Kelly on the report of Touch Judge Mark Bohan. The extra set was too much for the 12-man Wyong defence to cope with, with Norths spreading the play to the left for backrower Jack Gosiewski to score what turned out to be the match-winning try. Levido made no mistake to extend the Bears’ lead to 20-6. Wyong had a number of sets on attack to attempt a comeback as Vunakece came back from the bin in the final 10 minutes, but they came to no avail. Frustrations boiled over in the closing stages which led to Bears prop Dean Britt sin-binned for a lazy professional foul after a midfield scuffle with three minutes left, before Levido landed one last penalty goal in the final minute to close out a sweet Bears’ victory.
