Seniors Report Round 15: Bears Dazzle, Flegg Go Two Wins Clear at Top

The North Sydney Bears put on a show at Commbank Stadium against Parramatta, while the Jersey Flegg team continued their reign at the top of the ladder following a dominant win over the Eels.

The Central Coast Roosters ground out a draw against the third-placed Newcastle Knights in an almighty effort with the final match of the regular season looming. 

Like the NRL, the NSW Cup, Jersey Flegg and Harvey Norman Women's Premiership sides will have a competition-wide break during the representative weekend, returning on the weekend of July 1. 

Bears Entertain in Big Win at Parramatta 

The crowd at Commbank Stadium was treated to an entertaining contest between the Bears and the Eels prior to the NRL match, with the red and black claiming a 31-20 victory. 

Norths started on fire with Naufahu Whyte striking in the fifth minute before Adam Keighran extended the lead with a penalty goal, and while Parramatta returned serve with a dubious put-down, Toa Mata'afa replied in kind just minutes later.

A miraculous effort from Keighran to keep the ball in the field of play as it bounced past the in-goal denied his side another four-pointer, and the home side snuck back in the shadows of halftime, with the Bears taking a narrow 14-12 lead at the break. 

After an intense opening 20 minutes of the second stanza, the deadlock was broken as the Eels levelled with a penalty goal, but Jason Taylor's men fired back with two quick tries to Tyler Cassel and Sandon Smith.

Parramatta responded to set up a single-score differential heading into the final ten minutes, but an ice-cold Keighran potted a field goal to seal the result, before winger Tom Carr touched down in the final minute for an eleven-point win. 

The North Sydney Bears will face off the Penrith Panthers on July 1 in Round 16 at BlueBet Stadium prior to the NRL match.

Mossman Scores Four as Roosters Go Past Eels

Winger Jack Mossman crossed for an incredible four tries as his Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side ran in a 34-point win against the Parramatta Eels at Kellyville Park on Saturday afternoon.

Three tries in the opening fifteen minutes saw the Red, White and Blue begin in strong fashion, taking a 14-nil lead at the break as they kept their opponents scoreless.

Mossman bagged his double upon the resumption to extend the lead, and while the home side got on the board, soon after, the Tricolours rallied to post three tries in a whirlwind nine-minute period to streak ahead.

With minutes remaining on the scoreboard, the winger was able to touch down once more to claim his fourth of the day as the Roosters claimed a 40-6 victory.

The Jersey Flegg Roosters will return to the field on July 1 to face the Penrith Panthers at BlueBet Stadium alongside the NSW Cup and NRL sides.

Central Coast Mount Almighty Effort Against Knights

The Central Coast Roosters and Newcastle Knights took the share of competition points on Monday night at Morry Breen Oval in a 10-all draw.

Jazlyn Evans opened the scoring eighteen minutes in, giving the Roosters an early advantage, and that 4-nil scoreline remained at the break as neither side was able to add to the scoresheet.

It took another fifteen minutes following halftime for the Knights to get on the board, and scored in quick succession to take the lead for the first time, 10-6 with fulltime looming.

The Red, White and Blue rallied as Jayme Fressard touched down to level, but the final ten minutes failed to separate the sides, with the final scores at 10-all.

The Central Coast Roosters will take on the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in the final regular-season round of the Harvey Norman Women's Premiership, with their finals hopes still alive.
