The North Sydney Bears have put in a hard-fought defensive display to hold off a valiant Newtown Jets outfit 16-12 at Henson Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Bears rolled through three tries in the opening 35 minutes to take a commanding 16-6 lead, but a last-gasp try on the half-time buzzer from Newtown set up an exciting second stanza.

The Bears battled strongly for a majority of the contest as the Jets dominated possession and field position, but it was North Sydney’s tireless defensive efforts that ultimately proved the difference.

Eli Levido was a shining light for North Sydney with two try-assists, while Cheyne Whitelaw continued his good form with another strong display.
