A game played at great pace and intensity with both sides throwing it wide at every opportunity. Probably wasnt enough keep it in tight from the piggies, so both sides cancelled each other out for much of the game. Joeys probably a little below their best. Sualli well contained with little opportunity to make an impression. Had a couple of good runs but mostly in traffic.
4 tries each at Stanmore, goal kicking the difference in the end. A game of contrasting styles with Newington relying largely on speed out wide, while Scots graft through the forwards. Newington seemed to lose their composure and structure in the 2nd half, while the Scots machine just kept going. Scots just know how to graft out a win. Highly enjoyable day of rugby at Stanmore with most games very competitive.

Sorry all. Been out of Sydney today as my eldest was not well and hence a visit down to Nowra today. He works down there and needed his dad. Missed everything!!! Thanks to another Joeys dad for texting me score. Sounds like the 2nds was an amazing finish. Was told the last play was the kick off and Joeys went 16 phases to score.
And what the $%&# happened at Stanmore. 19-0 lead and then Scots hit back?#$@$%
Anyway, next week we play the dark forces of Mordor. Joeys held firm last time we faced them.
So The Battlers from Bellevue Hill will travel to HH to meet Goliath to decide the premiership and Kings will meet Shore to decide the wooden spoon ....... can you imagine the odds of that pre season ...... you have to feel for the Kingsmen 1 point last week 3 this week just so close but so far ....... can’t wait to see the Jokers pics this week
