could you please advise if the Norths website it wrong or this post?

there are different times for both Harold Matts and SG Ball. I am presuming that Harold Matts is 2pm and SG Ball 3.30pm but it would be great to have this clarified so I don't miss out on watching Harold Matts play.

Yes I'll be there, I'll post a report no probs

SG Ball lost 18-12. I heard that Newcastle scored a try near the end when a knock-on was missed by the ref which

Harold Matthews lost 32-6. Apparently the Bears really improved in the second half. The halftime score was 24-0.

Yeh I watched Harold Matts, and some of SG Ball.

Harold Matts certainly DID improve in the 2nd half. They defended well and basically got a bit more aggression behind them, which is what they need. Newcastle, I think, were the dirtiest players we've played against to date. One of their players put on report (number 4) who basically should've been sin binned earlier in the game. I don't think the ref was the best, nor the touchies. Tom Scrivener scored out try and Junior Rika coverted, even though the broadcaster said it was Josh Moses, it was certainly Junior.

All in all, I believe we've improved and I just hope that these boys can play with a lot more aggression next week when we take on Manly.

Come on boys lets' beat manly next week like we did in the trials!!!

best players........mate they were all good. Was a bit surprised that Sulaiman Underabi wasn't on the field for the whole game.

If I had to say who the best players were I say Anthony Takchi, Joshua Nicholls, Tom Scrivener and Jaye Bass played well.

Junior Match Reports


Monday, March 20, 2006 - Newcastle Knights


The Pepsi Knights Juniors were at home to the North Sydney Bears and another healthy crowd turned out at EnergyAustralia Stadium to watch two wins.

Harold Matthews

Pepsi Knights 32 defeated North Sydney Bears 6

The Pepsi Knights completed their first set to help settle them into the game. Enthusiastic, strong defence and continuing completions of their sets saw the Pepsi Knights in control of the game.

The speed of the Pepsi Knights play the ball had the Bears scrambling and after spreading the ball out to the left centre Peter Mata置tai delivered a short pass to prop Mitch Johnson who ran through a gap to score after 5 minutes. The scoreline was 4-0 after the Mata置tai conversion attempt was waved away.

The Pepsi Knights were again building pressure when five-eight Blake Birch put a grubber into the in goal and the chase trapped the Bears fullback. From the drop out the Pepsi Knights controlled the ball very well and worked it back to the Bears 20 metre line. Sending it wide again, this time to the right lock Sol Foster dummied his way through the Bears defence to find 2nd rower Chuck Luck in support who scored next to the posts after Foster had drawn in the fullback. With the Mata置tai conversion the score was 10-0 to the Pepsi Knights after 9 minutes of play.

The Pepsi Knights were making great metres on every run and were back on the Bears 20 metre line from the kick off set. A Birch kick went dead in goal and with the Bears gaining the ball for a 20 metre restart soon made a mistake with an offside player producing a penalty to the Pepsi Knights. Captain Peter Mata置tai stepped up and kicked the penalty goal to extend the lead to 12-0 with 13 minutes gone on the clock.

Things didn稚 improve for the Bears when they kicked out on the full from the kick-off and the Pepsi Knights were awarded the penalty at the centre of the halfway. The Pepsi Knights were straight back on the attack and inside the Bears 30 metre zone. Fullback Michael Gavan was held up over the line on the 2nd tackle. From the next play the ball Birch this time had the right amount of weight on the ball with a great kick in behind the defensive line for Mata置tai to touch down for the Pepsi Knights third try at the 15 minute mark. Converting his own try, Mata置tai saw the lead extend to 18-0.

Not only was their attack looking sharp, but the Pepsi Knights defence was stopping anything the Bears could throw at the Knights, as the Bears were completing their sets at a very high percentage.

Again, with good field position the Pepsi Knights were able to control the game and a well rehearsed bomb from Birch saw winger Brydon Roper leap above his opposite to take the high ball and score at the 24th minute. Another tremendous sideline conversion from skipper Mata置tai saw the half-time score of 24-0 to the Pepsi Knights.

The 2nd half opened with both sides throwing the ball around chancing their attack. The pace of the game was quick with great attacking football and solid defence from both sides.

The Pepsi Knights after defending their line well, went the full length of the field as the ball past through many sets of hands in some bright attacking movements. Finally, on the end of a backline play forward Jarrod Walker scooped up a loose ball to go over for the try the Pepsi Knights had been trying to score. 11 minutes of the 2nd half had gone and with the missed conversion saw the score 28-0 to the Pepsi Knights.

Over enthusiasm by the Pepsi Knights saw dropped passes, as they were making plenty of breaks with great attacking football. An error off a dropped ball on a kick return by the Pepsi Knights gave the Bears an attacking opportunity. With the lazy defence the Bears were able to spin the ball wide for centre Tom Scrivener to score and with the conversion by Josh Moses the bears trailed 6-28 after 15 minutes of the 2nd half.

Back rower Scott Cunningham was leading the way for the Pepsi Knights defence and was showing plenty of courage after returning to the field after having a nasty cut above his eye stitched.

The Pepsi Knights continued to control the football and complete sets and with half Luke Hoppe taking the ball right in the 24th minute he found 2nd rower Chuck Luck hitting a hole and running over the fullback to score his second try. No conversion saw the Pepsi Knights reach the final score of 32-6. A highlight of the remaining minutes of the game was winger Jeremy Papamau picking up the rolling ball from the in goal to beat three defenders in the ingoal before darting away on a thirty metre run. Papamau was unlucky to be tackled from behind just before he could reach clear space as a length of the field try loomed.

A very polished display by the Pepsi Knights Harold Matthews team, which will stand them in good stead for some tough games in the coming weeks.

Pepsi Knights 32 Tries: Chuck Luck (2), Mitchell Johnson, Peter Mata置tai, Brydon Roper, Jarrod Walker

Goals: Peter Mata置tai (4)

Defeated

North Sydney Bears 6 Tries: Tom Scrivener Goals: Josh Moses

S G Ball

Pepsi Knights 18 defeated North Sydney Bears 12

Injuries to the Pepsi Knights starting players Lucas Miller (2nd row), Joel Edwards (prop), Nick Croad (five-eight) as well as, bench player Greg Connell (prop) had the Pepsi Knights looking forward to an easier game against the Bears who were yet to win a game.

With full credit to the Bears they turned up at EAS ready to play and looking to knock over one of the competition form teams.

The Pepsi Knights started the game as they had done in all previous matches, when they played down the right side with centre Callan Richardson creating space for winger Ryan Lamb who scored in the corner untouched to open the scoring after 7 minutes. With no conversion the score remained at 4-0 to the Pepsi Knights.

The game was a torrid affair which coaching staff usually refer to as the arm wrestle when the game is in the balance with both sides looking for dominance or crucial errors delivering an opportunity.

It wasn稚 till the 21st minute of the game before hooker Tyne Owen took that opportunity and scored a vital try for the Pepsi Knights. With replacement lock Todd Hurrell kicking the conversion to take the score onto 10-0 for the Pepsi Knights.

In the 32nd minute the Bears were backing themselves to have the game remain tight as they took the shot at penalty goal to reduce the halftime score to 2-10 when Bears five-eight Liam Foran kicked the goal to register the half-time score.

The Pepsi Knights commenced the 2nd half they way they would have hoped when winger Simon Williams scored off a great pass from dummy half Tyne Owen which saw Owen cut out a man on the short side to send Williams over in the corner. No conversion saw the Pepsi Knights leading 14-2 with only 5 minutes gone in the 2nd half.

The Bears were hanging on with scrambling defence and spoiling tactics that just didn稚 allow the Pepsi Knights settle into any rhythm. Bears fullback supported a break to score in the 11th minute to bring the Bears back into the game, however, the missed conversion only saw the score at 6-14 with breathing space for the Pepsi Knights.

The Bears weren稚 going away and with errors creeping into the Pepsi Knights and some poor options with both the ball in their hand and their kicking game allowed the Bears to stay in touch. Bears five-eight Liam Foran scored in the 29th minute and the conversion to fullback Kimon Tellidis converted to have the score at 12-14 in favour of the Pepsi Knights.

With six minutes remaining it certainly was anyone痴 ball game. The Pepsi Knights had dominated many facets of the game, but just couldn稚 put the Bears away. And to the Bears credit were not going to give up without a fight.

The Knights created the last opportunity of the game from a turn over. Replacement centre Beau Simpson who was filling in for Tyren Mundine who had gone off with a suspected broken shoulder ran 40 metres to score and have the final score at 18-12 and a hard fought victory for the Pepsi Knights.

It was a win that could prove valuable for the Pepsi Knights. Although, it was a game they were expected to win, a loss would have been detrimental come finals time.

Pepsi Knights 18 Tries: Ryan Lamb, Tyne Owen, Simon Williams, Beau Simpson

Goals: Todd Hurrell

defeated

North Sydney 12 Tries: Kimon Tellidis, Liam Foran

Goals: Kimon Tellidis, Liam Foran

http://www.northsydneybears.com.au/Bears%20Den/Match%20Reports/Reports/20060318-bears-and-knights-in-nail-biter.htm

The North Sydney S G Ball side have again fought the hard fight without taking away the two points in a thrilling finish at Energy Australia Stadium on Saturday.

Coach Michael Pobjie praised his sides defence of their line in the first half as the knights resorted to their kicking game to get over the line and score two tries. While Bears captain Liam Foran scored the only points in the half for his team converting a penalty goal.

In the second half a cleaner play the ball for both sides lead to fewer penalties and a more open game of footy with tenacious fullback Kimon Tellidis scoring first for the Bears off a well placed grubber kick from half Luke Cox. As the momentum for the Bears grew Norths hooker Mitch Williams and Luke Cox began to find space. But it was a timely individual try from Liam Foran that brought the Bears back in to contention.

With minutes on the clock and the score at 14-12 in favour of the Knights an apparent knock on by Newcastle was missed catching the Bears unawares and allowing the Knights to score out wide. The final score 18-12 to the Knights.

Best for the Bears were half Luke Cox, hooker Mitch Williams centre Autama Iese, Siosi Liumaunu and Tim McDonald.

The Bears Harold Matthews team rallied after a halftime rev up by Coach Kevin Nichols. Attaining their best share of possession to date the Bears forwards did the most damage to date headed by Kenneth Cheer, Jake Kellie and Justin Joudo. The platform laid allowed Tom Scrivener to score and Josh Nicholls to convert.

However the fight back was too late, Newcastle finishing in front 32-6.

Jake Kellie was players player and attracted praise from both Coach Kevin Nicholls and General Manager Greg Florimo. Kevin Nicholls also claimed Josh Nicholls and Kenneth Cheer as his best. Looking to the next round Greg Florimo hoped the team would 鍍ake their second half performance into their next match against Manly.

The Bears Juniors will play Manly at Leichhart Oval prier to the Premier League on Sunday 26th March from 11:00am.


I hope all Bears fans get out to Leichhardt Oval to watch the Junior Reps against Manly and followed by Balmain vs Norths in Premier League.

Poor Junior (Harold Matts team)

In both of the above reports it seems that there were two different players converting our only try. Rolling Eyes

When in fact the credit should go to Junior.

Does anyone know if the starting line-ups for both teams were the same as in the program? And were numbers 14-20 used from the bench in both grades?
