Seniors Report Round 4: Flegg Pipped, Bears Continue Run

There were mixed results for the senior pathways sides this weekend, with the Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg Cup side getting piped at the death, while the North Sydney Bears continued their undefeated start to the season.

The Central Coast Roosters will kick-off their season in the Harvey Norman Women's Premiership (Open Competition) on Sunday May 1 against the Wests Tigers at Morry Breen Oval. 

Bears Comeback Against Wests on Sunday Night

Despite having a number of players flying back from Townsville on gameday, the North Sydney Bears were able to seal a result against the Western Suburbs Magpies on Sunday night at Leichhardt Oval. 

The sides went tit-for-tat in a close first half, with Renouf Atoni opening the scoring for the Bears before Lachlan Lam added his name to the scoresheet, while a try in the final minute saw the scoreline at 12-all heading into the sheds.

Western Suburbs hit back first to reclaim the lead, but in the final quarter of the match, the red and black sealed the result with Josh Bergamin, Tom Carr and Fa'amanu Brown all crossing for tries as they claimed a 28-18 victory.

The North Sydney Bears will host the Parramatta Eels at North Sydney Oval at 5:00pm on Saturday night in their first home game of the season.

Roosters' Comeback Falls Short Against Tigers

Two tries in the final five minutes were not enough to get the Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side home in a close 26-28 affair against the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval. 

Easts began proceedings in strong fashion with two tries in the first ten minutes, but the Tigers replied in kind to force an 8-10 halftime score as both conversions were missed.

Three four-pointers to the home side saw the Tricolours facing a fourteen-point deficit heading into the final 20 minutes, but late tries to Vuate Karawalevu and Jack Mossman were not enough to overcome the Tigers, with the final scoreboard reading 26-28. 

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg Cup side will host the Parramatta Eels at Morry Breen Oval on Saturday afternoon in their Round 5 match.
