NSW Cup Round 12 Highlights: Bears vs Rabbitohs

Bears Bounce Bunnies in High Scoring Match

The North Sydney Bears have maintained their position in the top four of the NSW Cup with a 32-24 victory over the South Sydney Rabbitohs at North Sydney Oval in a match that saw both sides score five tries apiece.

Centre Adam Keighran scored a double in the first half, however, four quickfire tries to the visitors through Izaac Thompson, Davvy Moale, Ben Lovett and Josh Mansour saw Norths facing a 12-18 deficit at the break.

Not to be deterred, the red and black started the second half in strong fashion with forward Jerry Key crossing to equalise before winger Tom Carr continued his tryscoring ways to give his side the lead 53 minutes in.

A penalty goal to Keighran extended the lead to eight points, but it wasn't long before young Egan Butcher was over to seal the result despite Souths scoring a consolation try in the shadows of fulltime.

Relocation No Matter for Jersey Flegg Roosters

A late change of venue to Windsor Sports Complex failed to phase the Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side as they put in a comprehensive 34-14 performance against the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Sunday afternoon.

The young Tricolours maintained top spot on the Jersey Flegg ladder as they ran in six tries, including three in the opening sixteen minutes to Corey Ross, Luke Knight and Tevita Masima.

Souths struck back with a brace of four-pointers in a five minute period to bring the halftime score to 16-10, however, the Roosters were quick to extend their lead once again as Vuate Karawalevu crossed immediately after the break.

The Rabbitohs returned serve but with Jordan Swann and Ethan King going over in the dying stages, running away to a 34-14 victory.

Central Coast Roosters Win Well Against Wenty

A resounding 28-4 win over the Wentworthville Magpies has seen the Central Coast Roosters record their first victory of the season in style, piling on six tries to one at Morry Breen Oval.

After a frustrating opening month to the season with two close defeats, a loss and a bye, the Tricolours got on the board early through barnstorming second rower Olivia Kernick, before a four-pointer to Jada Taylor in the shadows of halftime earned the side a 10-nil lead.

Their early momentum proved to be the catalyst as four tries in the opening twelve minutes of the second stanza sealed the result, with Captain Isabelle Kelly crossing twice as Anneka Wilson and Jazlyn Evans added their names to the scoresheet.

Wentworthville crossed for a consolation, but the Central Coast Roosters took home the two competition points 28-4 with a top four position in sight.
