Seniors Report Round 5: Winning Streak Continues

It was another week and another win for the North Sydney Bears, who now sit in second place in the NSW Cup, while the Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side bounced back with a win. 

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 Mark Return Home With Victory Over Eels

The North Sydney Bears played their first home game of the season at North Sydney Oval and marked the occasion with a 30-16 win over the Parramatta Eels.

An enthusiastic Norths side blew their opponents off the park with five tries in a nineteen-minute span, which began with Toa Mata'afa scoring after just four minutes.

Fellow centre Adam Keighran joined him on the scoreboard after scooping up a wayward pass, before providing his winger Tom Carr with a quick-fire double.

Keighran scored his second almost immediately after before the Eels hit back twice in the final five minutes before halftime for a 24-12 scoreline.

After an arm wrestle in the opening stages of the second stanza, Ben Marschke finished off an almighty team effort to seal the result, and while Parramatta scored a consolation try in the dying stages, the Bears celebrated their homecoming with the two competition points.

Jersey Flegg Bounce Back With Big Win

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side bounced back from their close loss last week to claim a 36-14 win over the Parramatta Eels in Wyong.

Much like the Bears, Easts crossed in quick succession with Ethan King and Vaiala Tamati scoring for a 12-nil lead after just fourteen minutes, but their opponents hit back with two tries of their own to close the halftime lead to four points.

Jack Mossman extended the lead soon after the break before Parramatta crossed once again, but three tries in fifteen minutes saw the young Roosters streak away to a 22-point win, which saw King and Tamati complete their doubles. 

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side will turn their attention to the Canberra Raiders on Saturday at North Sydney Oval.
