I thought it was a fantastic game. I felt a little let down from the last two losses but actually enjoyed this game on Sunday. Surely if we play like that again, we should be able to beat Manly. Especially if we have all the support that we had there on Sunday.

http://www.northsydneybears.com.au/Bears%20Den/Match%20Reports/Reports/20060402-north-sydney-come-through-with-timely-win.htm

The North Sydney Bears have posted a win against the Magpies at T G Milner Field with a solid second half, rolling on from a 14-8 lead at half time. Improving on their completion rate in the second half, Norths took control of the match and won 40-20.

The Bears Filinga ‘Fingers’ Filiga scored first for the Bears to make it 4 points all after lead up work from Daniel Watkins and Ben Black. After the Maggies hit back again, Ben Black sent Daniel Watkins in to score in the corner levelling the score once again to 8 all. Then after looking for gaps for most of the half Chris Walker hit the floor running off a Ben Black pass and ran 40 metres, scoring under the posts and giving an easy conversion for Daniel Russell to make a half time score of 14-8 to Norths.

In the second half the Magpies scored early to level the score for the last time. Then Norths captain Daniel Russell did great work to dodge a number of defenders to get to the line and convert his own try, and soon after he added a penalty goal to the growing score. Daniel Russell then set up Ben Black to score twice. Once with a pass to find a hole for Ben in the line and second a chip kick over the defence in to the hands of Ben to score. A final try to Wests occurred before Ben Black set up Ben Ellis to score. With Dan Russell successful with 6 from 8 kicks the score blew out to 40-20.

Players Player Ben Black and hooker Ben Ellis shined in the second half. Coach White felt Blackie’s passing and kicking game and the controlled service from dummy half of Ben Ellis were major contributions to the successful second half. Daniel Russell (sporting a new peroxide hair cut) and a hard running Aaron Trinder were also major contributors to the win. “We played ugly football but achieved the objective of getting the two points” said Coach Josh White.

Bears Harold Matthews team have only just missed out on the 2 points losing to the Magpies 28-26 in the last minutes of the match. Leading at the half way mark 20-6 a mistake at the kick off after the final try gave the Maggies the impetus to score 2 tries and over take the Bears.

Coach Kevin Nicholls said “We did very well in defence and scored some great tries”, Coach Nicholls named Junior Rika, Tom Scrivener and Kenneth Cheer as his best performers. This game also saw the return from injury of the talented back Paul Nguyen scoring a try on his return.

In the stand alone Jersey Flegg match at Leichhart Oval the Bears were defeated by Balmain 40-8. Coach Steve Carter commented “We faced a team that played better than us on the day and we did not rise to the occasion”. The standout players for Coach Carter were Chris Dears and Blayden Baird.

Also at T G Milner Field the S G Ball was defeated by Wests 48-4.

Bears maul Magpies in second half blitz

NORTH Sydney will re-acquaint themselves with their beloved Bear Park in a buoyant mood this weekend after returning to the Premier League winners' circle on Sunday.

In stark contrast to the previous round's collapse against Balmain, the red and blacks saved their best football for the second half to overrun Western Suburbs 40-20 in their last appearance for 2006 at their home away from home, Eastwood's TG Millner Field.

After leading 14-8 at the break, Norths produced five tries, including a Ben Black double that was crafted by captain Daniel Russell.

The Bears benefitted from the late inclusion of former Queensland dasher Chris Walker, who was not required for Melbourne's NRL game against Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval.

Wearing the number 23 jersey, Walker came up with a vital second half try that put Norths on the road to victory because it was followed almost immediately from the kick-off by one of Black's efforts.

``It was good to see that we went on with the job this week instead of slackening off like we did against Balmain,'' Russell said.

``I think it showed what we are capable of when we control the ball.

``It was a must-win match for us, so it was a big relief to get the job done.''

The result puts the Bears back into the Premier League's top eight after the opening month of the competition with two wins and two losses to their name.

If Russell has his way, that's where they'll be staying, too.

``Everyone knows it's only a matter of time before this side clicks,'' he said.

``When we do, I'm sure we can match it with the big guns of the competition.''

Sunday's mauling of the Magpies was a wonderful tonic for the Bears as they prepare to have their first outing at North Sydney Oval for this season.

They will host arch-rivals Manly on Sunday in a showdown that is sure to have plenty of feeling.

Nearly half of the Norths line-up are former Sea Eagles, while coach Josh White was in charge of Manly's Jersey Flegg team last winter.

Can't Bear to Watch!

The Wests Magpies Premier League team were valiant, but left TG Milner empty handed. Yet to record a win for 2006 our players put in their all, but in the end Norths were just too good and ran out easy winners.

MATCH REPORT – PREMIER LEAGUE

WESTS MAGPIES VS NORTH SYDNEY BEARS

TG MILNER FIELD, EASTWOOD

SUNDAY 2 APRIL 2006

The Magpies were looking for their first win of the season in this away game against the Bears. The first half was an even affair with tries to hooker Sam Hoare and half Nathan Waters, however the Bears took a 14 – 8 advantage into the break.

The second half had just started when winger Ben Yelavich crossed for a fine try, which was converted by Ryan Powell locking the scores at 14 all. The Bears dominated the remainder of the second half and despite a late converted try to lock Rocky Trimarchi, the Bears ran out winners 40 – 20.

Scorers for the Magpies – Sam Hoare 1 try, Nathan Waters 1 try, Ben Yelavich 1 try, Rocky Trimarchi 1 try and Ryan Powell 2 goals.

Best for the Magpies – Chris Paterson, Ryan Powell, Nathan Waters, Sam Hoare and Ben Weir.

The Magpies play the Balmain Ryde Eastwood Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium at 3.30pm on Sunday 8 April 2006

Coaches Report

Of the first five competition games I was most confident of coming away a winning team with this match against the Bears. Alas it was not to be. With Jason Dorahy being badly injured last week and unavailable for at least 8 weeks Warren Williams was brought in to the five-eighth role and performed well considering a lack of condition and knowledge of our game.

Wests began well scoring first through Sam Hoare and looked on track early to build a strong platform from which to secure a win. And the coach thought we had learnt our lessons.

At 4-0 up Wests again succumbed to the sucker punch and allowed the opposition into the game to lead before leveling at 14-14 early in the second half. From here Wests need to engage some tough streaks to take advantage of the good work done by the team.

The middle opened up and the Bears surged through to set up tries across the park. It was not a pretty sight. Wests had chances to get back into the game but with squandered opportunities and missed tackles it was the Bears and not Wests that gained the ascendancy. We again have areas of improvement to work on and should the players grab their game by the “scruff of the neck” and work a little harder in defence the win will come very soon as our attacking game is coming together.

Best from the coach – Chris Patterson, Ben Weir, Sam Hoare, Nathan Waters

Saturday 8 April Vs Balmain is going to be one mighty game with Balmain certainly having the edge in playing strength from Wests Tigers returned players. But rest assured Wests will be out there giving as good as they get and look for their first win and what a day to do it.

Hope to see you at the game on Saturday,

John

The SG Ball Magpies have not only eaten the Bears porridge, sat in their chairs and slept in their beds. They have sent out a warning to the rest of the competition. It's Magpie season!

MATCH REPORT – SG BALL

WESTS MAGPIES VS NORTH SYDNEY BEARS

TG MILNER FIELD, EASTWOOD

SUNDAY 2 APRIL 2006

The Wests Magpies have kept their finals appearances alive by smashing the North Sydney Bears at their home and sent out a warning to the other teams. Never turn your back on a one eyed magpie.

Coach Andrew Willis was hoping to get the boys back on track in this important game against the Bears. A loss would almost certainly put the boys out of the race for the final series; however it was the Bears who put on the first try which sparked the Magpies into action. They dominated all aspects of play during the remainder of the game, running out winners 48 – 10. The entire team contributed to the win, however standout performers were half Wade Dunley, Chris Lawrence, Luke Kelly, Michael Stolk and Nathan Fiti.

Scorers for the Magpies – Michael Fualolo 2 tries, Luke Wisbey 1 try, Ratu Peni Tagive 1 try, Luke Kelly 1 try, Valeni Tiatia 1 try, Ben Shea 1 try, William Mataka 1 try, Simon Dwyer 1 try and Chris Lawrence 1 try and 4 goals.

The Magpies play the Sharks at 12.30pm Saturday 8 April, 2006 Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

The Harrold Mathews Magpies have held off the hungry Bears to escape from the bear den with a valuable 2 competition points.

MATCH REPORT – HAROLD MATTHEWS

WESTS MAGPIES VS NORTH SYDNEY BEARS

TG MILNER FIELD, EASTWOOD

SUNDAY 2 APRIL 2006

The Harold Matthews team took the field against the Bears looking for a relatively easy game; however the Bears had different ideas. They scored two tries in the first ten minutes and a shell shocked Magpies team found themselves down 10 – 0. The Magpies hit back with a try to five eight and captain, Thomas Kennedy and with the conversion by Roland Gloss, the Bears lead was reduced to four points. Unfortunately, the Magpies failed to maintain possession, which allowed the Bears to skip away to a 20 – 6 lead, before centre Sama Sauvao weaved his way through the defence to score a great try.

During the break the coach stressed the need to maintain possession and cut out the simple errors. During the next 20 minutes or so, the game moved from one end of the field to the other before centre David Tautaiolefue crashed over the line and with the conversion by Zac Besant, the Bears lead was reduced to 20 – 16. With five minutes left on the clock, the game looked well and truly over when the Bears scored a converted try, putting them ahead 26 – 16.

The Magpies lined up on half way ready for the kick off. The ball was put up high and was sensationally caught on the full by Thomas Kennedy who broke through three tackles to score under the posts. The extras were added by Zac Besant and the Magpies had a chance to get out of gaol with the Bears lead reduced to 26 – 22.

In the final couple of minutes, the ball moved across the backline to Sama Sauvao who put on a weaving run before scoring near the posts. Zac Besant answered the call by adding the extra two points and for the first time in the game, the Magpies hit the lead 28 – 26. The Bears threw everything at the Magpies, but their defence held strong, ensuring a great come from behind win.

Scorers for the Magpies – Thomas Kennedy 2 tries, Sama Sauvao 2 tries, David Tautaiolefue 1 try, Zac Besant 3 goals and Roland Gloss 1 goal.

Best for the Magpies – Thomas Kennedy, Sama Sauvao, David Tautaiolefue and Ben Mahina.

The Magpies play the Sharks at 11am Saturday 8 April, 2006 Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Well perhaps the Maggies shouldn't assume anything! maybe thats their problem.

Our younger Bears made us proud!! This is the standard of footy they should be playing..........pat on the back to all of them.

One of the Maggies supporters behind me was saying "Come on Parra's next".....tell you what, if Wests play like that, they'll be a mercy rule on that day!!!! Parra will SMASH them.

Just luck, pure luck not skill just luck !!!!
