The South Sydney junior representative teams have continued on their winning ways with victories over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in both the Harold Matthews under 16s and SG Ball under 18s competitions.


The under 16s scored a convincing 52-16 victory at the Suttons South Sydney High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval today (Saturday), with the under 18s registering a thrilling 19-18 win.


The Harold Matthews side was dominant from the start, scoring four tries to two in the first half, including a double to hooker John Neil, to lead 24-10 at the break.


They would go on to score five more tries in the second half, and in the process registered their sixth win this season from six matches, including their third haul of 50 points or more in a match.

The SG Ball side led 13-6 at the half time break, with what would become the decisive field goal kicked by five-eighth Paul Momirovski at the back end of the opening stanza.


The Bulldogs would fight back to lead 18-13 with ten minutes to go, but a powerful charge from prop forward Karl Saena saw him force his way over the line for the winning try.


With the South Sydney side leading by one in the closing stages, tentions began to run high with Bulldogs prop Jake Kamire starting a fight with his much smaller opponent, South Sydney halfback Liam Coleman. The Bulldog was marched to the sin bin, and South Sydney held on to score their fifth straight win of the season.
