A big weekend ahead for Round five of the NSW Harvey Norman Women's Premiership.
Wentworthville Magpies draw Central Coast Roosters 10-all
The Wentworthville Magpies, who currently sit at the bottom of the NSW Harvey Norman Women’s premiership displayed determination and grit when they drew 10-all with the table-toppers Central Coast Roosters on Saturday morning.
Chasing each other’s tail throughout the whole game, both teams put in equal performances of two tries and one successful conversion respectively in the first 30 minutes, with the second half remaining scoreless.
Central Coast Rooster Kylie Hilder was impressed with the oppositions performance and admitted her side didn’t perform to the best of their ability.
“Wentworthville came out and they were ready to play,” Said Hilder.
“We weren’t out there playing like we have for the past three weeks but all credit to them, they went through their plays, they were tough, and we’ve got a few bruised bodies to prove it.
“It was definitely a tough game.”
After enduring four losses in the 2020 season, the Magpies showed no signs of intimidation when facing the undefeated Roosters, and despite the equal result, many lessons came out of today’s performances for either side.
“We weren’t at our best today,” said Hilder.
“It’s not the end of the world we’ll go back to the drawing board and get back to training, look at the video and prepare for next week’s game.”
Central Coast will verse the Cronulla Sharks next week while Wentworthville will look to build on their good form when they face the Wests Tigers.
