Bears SG Ball put in a good performance and only went down narrowly to the Bulldogs.

A couple of changes to the starting line-up with Samuel Talanoa starting for James Hollis-Tuilau and Judah Wikeepa starting for Jamie Tonga. The players who were used from the bench were Kimon Tellidis, Tonga, Hollis-Tuilau, Dennis Fuller, Siaosi Ngu, Daniel Casa and Trent Cridland.

The scoring was
0-4. The Bulldogs scored a lucky try after Bears centre Pat Mataele hurt his ankle making a tackle on the goal line and couldn't get back up so the Bulldogs dummy half dived over to score.
6-4. Nathan Searle made a strong run to score for the Bears. Liam Foran converted.
10-4. The Bears had a scrum on about halfway and from the scrum win Liam Foran kicked into the ingoal on the first play and Ryan Oldfield out sprinted the Bulldogs backs to claim a try. It was brilliant.
10-10. Bulldogs scored after John Kite (who is from the Bulldogs JF squad) set up a try for Karl McNichol (also from the Bulldogs JF squad).
10-16. Big prop John Kite scores for the Bulldogs.
16-16. Liam Foran throws a dummy pass and breaks through the line to score. He converts his own try.
Halftime: 16 all
20-16. Samuel Talanoa scored after making a strong run.
24-16. The Bears won a scrum against the feed and in the next set of six Judah Wikeepa scored outwide for the Bears.
24-22. Bulldogs score.
24-28. Bulldogs make a break from a scrum in their own quarter and score.
24-34. John Kite barges over for the Bulldogs.
Fulltime: Bears 24 Ė Bulldogs 34

There was a big improvement on last week. If we played the Bulldogs next week we probably would win because they would have been without a number of the players who played who are actually in their Jersey Flegg squad including prop John Kite (the player who scored 4 tries against us last year in JF), centre Karl McNichol, prop Shannon Cross and centre Esi Tonga and Heka Nanai.

Some of the players who I thought stood out for the Bears included Liam Foran, Kimon Tellidis, Nathan Searle, Tim McDonald, Ryan Oldfield and Mitch Williams.

The performance should give the Bears a bit of confidence going into their next match against the Central Coast.


The Bears Harold Matthews team didnít perform as well as the SG Ball, going down 44-0. Halftime score was 22-0.

The Bulldogs had a lot of big Polynesians in their side and outsized the Bears.

The Bears were able to scramble well in defence and saved about 5 other tries.

A few players who I thought were the better performers for the Bears were Josh Nicholls, Tom Scrivener, Jaye Bass and Sulaiman Underabi.


There were some injuries from both of the Bears sides including Tom Scrivener and Junior Rika from Harold Matthews and from SG Ball Pat Mataele and Samuel Talanoa. Also from SG Ball John Faletau was placed on report. Hopefully all these players will be available next week.


Despite not winning a game over the last two weeks hopefully the Bears wonít be too worried. Things should get easier from here with 5 out of our 6 remaining games at home. If we win 4 games it should mean we make the finals, and I donít think there would have been too many people penciling in a win against either the Eels or the Bulldogs. The Bears SG Ball side showed that they are capable of beating any side from here on in. And the Harold Matthews will be looking to beat Central Coast, Newcastle (last years wooden spooners), Manly (already beaten them in a trial), and Roosters (who have been pretty hopeless this year) for their shot at the finals.
