Not Long Now
The major talking point of the weekend is yet to come, the much-anticipated VB Blues team announcement. Stay locked on www.NSWRL.com.au for updates on the team.
Props State Their Claim
VB Blues hopefuls, David Klemmer and Andrew Fifita, performed very well for their respective clubs over the weekend. Klemmer notched up 243 metres and 22 tackles for the Bulldogs, while Fifita was constantly threatening for the Sharks, running for 183 metres and making 33 tackles.
The New Zealand Warriors have not been renowned for their consistency in any grade, in any era, and that can be highlighted through their struggling NRL squad. Their Intrust Super Premiership NSW side, however, has brushed that aside, notching up their fifth consecutive win yesterday against Manly.
Newtown Is Coming, Hear The Bluebags Humming
Another impressive victory by the Jets not only confirmed their premiership contenders tag, but also got them a place in the all-important top four. They convincingly defeated the star-studded Wyong Roos today, with the 32-16 score-line only looking close due to poor Newtown goal-kicking.
The Newcastle Knights NRL side are struggling with their young and inexperienced players, and most of them should be playing Intrust Super Premiership NSW. Unfortunately, Matt Lantry’s side knows this more than anyone, as they slumped to another heavy defeat on Saturday to the Wests Tigers.
It’s Happened Again
Last week, NSWRL.com.au highlighted how frustrated East Campbelltown’s Sydney Shield side must have felt after posting 38 points but losing 43-38. You won’t believe their luck, as yesterday they went down 40-38 at the hands of Western Suburbs.
86 Not Out
The Auburn Warriors did not take the Kingsgrove Colts lightly this week, as the Colts were coming off their first win of their 2016 Ron Massey Cup campaign. This resulted in the Warriors putting on an absolute show, thrashing the Colts 86-6, which included a massive 18 tries.
