All the best action from the Round 4 of the NSWRL’s Junior Representative competitions.
Dragons dominate Dogs
St George Dragons have defeated Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 28-6 in the Harvey Norman Tarsha Gale Cup at Belmore Sports Ground.

The Dragons got off to a flying start through captain Luisa Yaranamua and Rayven-Jodeci Boyce, who both scored in the opening eight minutes. Courageous Afoa kicked two from two to give her side a 12-0 lead.
Hooker Erana Reti was able to crash over in the 17th minute and Afoa made it three from three to put the Dragons in control at 18-0.
Monalisa Solioala scored the Dogs first try with Bree Stone adding the extras, bringing the score to 18-6 at the break.
Afoa got in on the action with a four-pointer of her own in the 37th minute and 12 minutes later, Litia Fusi crashed over with Afoa adding the extras.
At the final whistle the Dragons led 28-6 to remain undefeated after three rounds.

Sea Eagles slay Dragons
Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have defeated St George Dragons 12-0 in the SG Ball Cup at New Era Stadium.
With wet weather making conditions tough for both teams, it was the Sea Eagles who finally broke the deadlock in the 24th minute through centre Josh Feledy.
Off the back of a scrum, 2021 Harold Matthews Cup Player of the Year Latu Fainu put through a perfectly weighted kick and Feledy showed plenty of pace in the heavy grass to score.
Tensions boiled over from two separate incidents that saw both sides lose two players each to the sin bin in the space of two minutes.
From there, Manly found themselves attacking the Dragons goal line and Kobe Fulton, grandson of Rugby League Immortal Bob Fulton, burrowed his way over the line.
Tyler Bunting converted to give his side a 12-0 win to keep their undefeated season alive.
