After the bell pitch invasion !!!!
Scots 15 Kings 14
Try in the corner last play of the game!
Undefeated Scots and Joeys both home in nail biters.
Newington v Scots at Stanmore
Kings v Joeys at North Parramatta
Riverview v Shore at Lane Cove
Back to Newington day at Stanmore and there should be a full house for the match of the round.
New 2nds 12-7
New 16As 21-7
Shore 15As 17-12
New 13As was told by a lot
Got to have dinner give a report on the matches I saw later.
The 1st XV game was a remarkably tough and Difficult game for Newington despite the score. Shore started with a dominance in both possession and territory, but failed to score as Newington's defence proved more than a Match for Shore's resolute efforts in attack. However, once the New backs got a scent of the ball, it was a case of blistering pace in the attack against a pedestrian defence. Shore simply lacked the pace out wide to counter the Newington attack. Hence, a 35-0 lead by New at half -time was the order the day.
A further 22 points were added in the second half, again, the New backs proved if given free reign they unstoppable. But showed a capacity to attack the New Line, only again to be stopped. However, in the last 5-10 minutes Shore's defence tightened up and Shore proved they could stop the New backs.
In other games, Shore can take immense pleasure in defeating the New 15As. Shore had more passion in their forwards and this was the difference between the two sides.
16As proved their strength with another strong display, despite a slow start.
14As won 41-0 with a full strength side, with some brilliant attacking backline. z

An absolute nail biter at BH today, Scots were their own worst enemy again today small mistakes and penalities now have to be considered part of their game, they are giving away 20 plus penalties per game and countless turnovers, they have been extremely lucky to have gotten away with it with View and today with Kings. I have absolutely no doubt that if they don’t stamp this out there is little chance we will beat New and zero that we will beat Joeys. Scots had at least 65 percent possession today and was in Kings 22 for 20 minutes at one stage but kept turning the ball ovef time and again. I feel for Kingsmen today their defence today was amazing and they played to exhaustion, cudos to the boys from Paramatta. I think next week New v Scots and Kings v Joeys maybe the underdogs will bite the hardest ...
Joeys scoring in the first half>
Robhart, how did Sualli go? Kings would be a chance against joeys.
Hey Jim, congratulations on TAS winning all three grades at home.
Four wins in a row for the TAS 1st XV.
Joeys 3rds were able to overcome a strong Riverview team 17-7 today at Hunters Hill but the competition remains very tight.
Thanks, INP! The comp is tight, but SJC have to be favoured with two rounds to go.
SDW he looked dangerous scored one clear break try but was shut down in most plays .... I think the weight of possession for Scots obviously makes it hard to score if you don’t have the ball ... it was a good match up between him and Tyrell (year10 Scots) 1 try each
and one of Riverview's tries >
bad break to his left thumb - bone protruding, pointing one way and the rest his of thumb going the other. Very nasty.

I agree Rob.
It was painful to watch at times.
So many dropped passes within 5 metres of the Kings line.
Penalty after penalty for stupid mistakes.
Scots will need to do far better next week.
They are a good side but are lucky to be 3 wins from 3.
Newington are highly capable and will be far fitter than when the teams met in a preseason trial.
On current form I wouldn't bet against New at home cheered on by a contingent of highly vocal old boys who loathe the boys from Bellevue Hill.
It should be a cracker!
He went great, made plenty of metres and a fantastic individual try. He marked an old teammate from the juniors that scots have got hold of, also in year 10, and he scored the winning try. Today was the first time they have played against each other apparently. You could see their camaraderie after the game.
