- We need to be careful of their fast backline.

This clash will be even more interesting now that there are some reports that the Bears could be forming a feeder arrangement with Souths next year.

I don't know if he is injured or not.

I read in the paper that Bartlett has been added to Melbourne's squad and Shortland is being considered to replace Billy Slater who is suspended. That would leave us with no Storm players.

So someone would need to be added to the bench. Perhaps Watkins or a Jersey Flegg player.

Unfortunately we lost 22-12 after trailing 14-0 at half time. North Sydney dominated the first half, but couldn't score. South Sydney's defence was very tight - after the previous week's result when it conceded 60 points to Canberra, I imagine it spent the week working on it. South Sydney's first try came after a break through the centre while the second was scored seconds before the siren. I haven't got my notes with me, but I think this try came after Souths got the ball following either a stupid penalty or stupid play by Norths. Norths scored shortly after the break, but SS scored again soon afterwards. We didn't look like closing the gap. On the whole, I think the team played well and handled the wet conditions capably. Some of the attacking options probably didn't suit the wet, however. A few times, a North Sydney player was first to get to a towering kick, only to have the ball slide off the player's hands. It might have worked in the dry, but perhaps not the best strategy when it's raining. It was a game we should have won, particularly after the dominant first half. No standouts, but quite a number of players did good things, although would often go missing for periods in the game. The players I remember doing things that impressed me were James Maloney, Dan Russell, Richard Retimana, Aaron Trinder and Ryan Shortland.

The Bears tries were scored by Aaron Trinder and Daniel Russell. Russell converted both tries.

It will be good to get back to North Sydney Oval next week.

BEARS MAKE DEBUT AT TELSTRA STADIUM

The North Sydney Bears have again missed that much needed two points despite bettering their opponents three tries to one in the second half against the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The game played prior to the Rabbits win against the Broncos in first grade was the North Sydney Clubs’ debut performance at the Olympic Stadium at Homebush.

Despite a strong performance in the first half the Bears were unable to transfer the advantage to the score board. The Rabbits were the team to take advantage of their chances scoring two tries. While showing good ball control under wet conditions bad options in attack left the Bears pointless as they went to the break at 14-0 to the Bunnies.

In the second half the Bears went on attack as Norths front rower Aaron Trinder got over the line for Dan Russell to convert. But Souths hit back with their final try before an astonishing try {under the conditions} by Norths’ captain Dan Russell which passed through many Bears’ paws as the team ducked and weaved in attack. The Bunnies were the last to score from a penalty goal. The final score 20-12 to Souths.

Coach Josh White favoured the performances of second rower Chris Saab, halfback James Maloney, prop Aaron Trinder and players’ player of the match, Richard Retimana.

In cool and windy conditions at Aussie Stadium the Bears Flegg faced a Roosters team which has had only one loss to date. Sydney City were too strong for the Norths in defence running out winners 34-10 after a half time lead to Sydney City 22-0.

Stand in Coach Greg Florimo felt that the boys were hit hard by the Roosters defense and so were unable to gain the momentum to compete. Greg named winger Ryan Wilson, winger Chris Heasman and hooker Gavin Duncan as the Bears best.

Regular Flegg Coach Steve Carter is expected to be back on board for his teams’ next game at home on Sunday.

First half blues badger Bears

ANOTHER bad case of the first half blues has left North Sydney treading water in their quest to reach the semi-finals of the NSWRL VB Premier League.

Norths officials have lost count of the number of times the side has ``won'' the second half of their games this season, yet have finished on the wrong side of the final scoreline.

Bears coach Josh White told his troops after Saturday night's 20-12 loss to South Sydney at Telstra Stadium that if they wouldn't become a successful team until they could learn to start their matches on a much better footing.

With just 30 seconds to go before halftime, the Bears were behind by 8-0, only to concede a converted try in the last play of the half.

It was a morale-shattering blow, but to Norths' credit, they responded by opening the scoring in the new half through prop Aaron Trinder.

The Rabbitohs restored their 14-point advantage soon after, before captain Daniel Russell wiped six back off when he converted his won try and gave his side the sniff of an improbable win.

Russell could have narrowed the leeway even further a few minutes later, yet dropped the slippery ball with a healthy overlap close to the Souths line.

It was North Sydney's campaign in a nutshell.

``We crucified ourselves yet again because we didn't take our opportunities,'' White lamented.

``We're just not playing with much confidence at all.

``When you're playing well, those 50/50 things do go your way, but that certainly hasn't been the case for us.''

It was the third time in the past month that Norths have pushed their opponents to the wire, yet all they have to show for their endeavour is the solitary point they collected from a 14-all draw with Manly on May 20 at Brookvale.

The loss leaves the Bears seven competition points removed from the top eight with 14 rounds gone.

Norths' Jersey Flegg Cup (under-20s) side was outclassed 34-10 by the Sydney Roosters at Aussie Stadium on Sunday.

The Bears welcome St Marys-Penrith to North Sydney Oval in Premier League this Sunday afternoon.
