Junior Reps Round 2 Results

The UNE Harold Matthews and SG Ball sides took on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground yesterday, for round two of the NSW junior representatives competitions.

Harold Matthews: Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 52-0 South Sydney Rabbitohs

It was a tough entry into the 2020 competition for the Harold Matthews Rabbitohs, who were faced with the task of coming up against the Bulldogs - a side that has retained 10 of their 2019 Harold Matthews team that made the Grand Final.

Despite the scoreline, coach Gavin Sheehan says this is a good experience for his side coming up against a physically-bigger team who have set the benchmark for the competition.

"Areas of focus this week are obviously defence and mental resilience, but we should also expect a couple of key players back in the side," Sheehan said.

Next week the Rabbitohs will verse the Central Coast Roosters who are coming off a 28-4 loss against the Penrith Panthers.

 

SG BALL: Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 18-18 South Sydney Rabbitohs

The South Sydney Rabbitohs SG Ball side showed tremendous fight-back after coming back from 18-0 to eventually share the points with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

It went down to the last play after the Rabbitohs found themselves in great position to take a shot at field-goal, but a heads-up play from the Bulldogs resulted in a one-on-one steal, just as the full-time siren sounded.

SG Ball coach, Wayne Collins was particularly happy with Davvy Moale's game in the front-row and Hooker, Ratu Isireli Tuvana Vesikula looked particularly threatening out of Dummy-Half.

Next week, the SG Ball side also take on the Central Coast Roosters who are coming off a big 64-0 loss to Penrith.
