Dogs fall to Knights at home

Newcastle Knights have defeated Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 28-20 in Round Six of the Jersey Flegg Cup at Belmore Sports Ground.

The Knights overcame a horror start after conceding a penalty in the opening tackle of the game but things soon turned in their favour off the back of a Travhon Lemalama intercept, which saw him race 85m downfield to score the opening try of the match.

The home side got on the board through Harry Hayes, but the Knights hit straight back when Patrick Achurch crashed over in the 12th minute.

Both sides were having success on the edges with the Dogs crashing over on the left-hand side of the field before hooker Ediq Ambrosyev burrowed over from short range. Eli Clark converted to put the Dogs up 14-8 after 25 minutes.

The Bulldogs only crossed once more through Kaylib Savage before the Knights ran in more tries, including doubles to David Armstrong and Lemalama, and a try to Riley Jones, to give his side a hard-fought 28-20 win.

Fast start gives St Marys third win of 2022

St Marys Saints have defeated Ryde-Eastwood Hawks 30-22 at St Marys Leagues Stadium in Round Five of the Ron Massey Cup.

The home side proved they were up for the Good Friday clash, scoring three tries in the opening 15 minutes through Toni Tupouniua, Raymond Lesoa and Logan Dickson.

Hawks hooker Tjaden McLean got his side on the board, although when St Marys hit back through Luke Summerton, it looked like it could be a long afternoon for the Hawks.

Facing an uphill battle, the Hawks hit back through Bradley Cousins and once Jamin Williams converted, they found themselves within striking distance at 22-12.

St Marys final try came in the 29th minute from their ever-reliable playmaker Zac Greene. Trailing 30-12, the Hawks showed plenty of fight to get back into the contest as they ran in two tries to Cleveland McGhie and Williams, bringing the final score to 30-22.

Tigers squash Scorpions in hard-fought contest

The Entrance Tigers have defeated Macquarie Scorpions 12-10 at Cessnock Sports Ground to record their first win of the 2022 Denton Engineering Cup.

The Tigers got on the board early through the boot of Matthew Killick, who kicked a penalty goal in the opening minute of the game that proved to be the difference.

The Scorpions scored the opening try of the match after winger Kyle Kingston crashed over in the 14th minute, putting his side up 4-2.

The home side shot out to a 12-10 lead after scoring tries in quick succession to five-eighth William Pearsell in the 21st minute and winger Matthew Nelson, who crashed over in the 29th minute.

The Tigers will travel to Kurri Kurri in Round Five to take on the Bulldogs while the Scorpions will head home to face the Rosellas, who are searching for their first win of the 2022 season.
