Cronulla Sharks 16 def South Sydney Rabbitohs 0 at Cronulla High School
The Cronulla Sharks have sent an ominous warning to the rest of the competition of their premiership credentials with a resounding 16-0 victory over South Sydney Rabbitohs at Cronulla High School on Saturday.
It was billed as a blockbuster Round 4 Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership clash with both teams boasting representative talent – the Sharks lead by NSW Women's Origin fullback Corban McGregor while representative team-mate Shaylee Bent spearheaded the Rabbitohs outfit.
However, it was the return of superstar halfback Maddison Studdon that helped the Sharks remain undefeated in 2020, with their defensive efforts just as impressive as their attacking raids as they kept the Rabbitohs scoreless for the entire contest.
The scoreline was seemingly generous considering no tries were converted from Cronulla, however, four unanswered tries was enough to cement their dominance over their counterparts.
The Sharks have now recorded three consecutive victories to start the new campaign, while South Sydney has recorded just one win from their opening three fixtures.
Round 5 will see South Sydney host Wentworthville at Erskineville Oval while the Sharks will venture to Campbelltown Stadium to take on the Wests Tigers.
North Sydney Bears 30 def Wentworthville Magpies 0 at North Sydney Oval
Tyla Gambell and Shontelle Stowers have combined for five tries to steer the North Sydney Bears to a thumping 30-0 victory over Wentworthville at North Sydney Oval on Sunday.
It was a clinical performance from the foundation club who showed plenty of resolve in defence and were rewarded with their first win of the season in emphatic style.
It was also a fitting start for NSW Women's Origin enforcer Simaima Taufa, who celebrated her club debut with a try in the opening half.
The Bears will enjoy the week off in Round 5 while Wentworthville will host Central Coast Roosters next Saturday.
