ISP NSW Report: Canterbury v North Sydney
Simon Masterton
Sat 23rd April, 2016

Competition - Intrust Super Premiership Round - Round 08 Teams - Canterbury Bulldogs v North Sydney Bears - 23rd of April 2016 Venue - ANZ Stadium, Homebush, NSW, Photographer - Paul Barkley

BEARS ARE BACK: Refreshed off a bye but coming off a loss, North Sydney will be happy with their tight victory.

The Bears have eventually disposed of a gallant Bulldogs side thanks to dominant displays from Samisoni Langi and Man of the Match Cheyne Whitelaw to keep the Bulldogs winless in 2016.

In dreary conditions at ANZ Stadium, it was evident from kick-off that this would be a typical Homebush arm wrestle; both sides earned repeat sets in the opening stages with nicely-timed grubber kicks into the in-goal and were truly in wet-weather mode.

In the 14th minute the Bears defence eventually cracked thanks to a fantastic looping cutout ball from Matt Frawley to winger Jarrod McInally. The conversion attempt hit the upright for a 4-nil Bulldogs lead.

The Bears struck back in the 27th minute through three of their late inclusions: returning five-eighth Cody Walker sent it wide to his winger Tom Hughes, who came up with a brilliant offload for Bernard Gregorius. With the try converted, North Sydney took a two-point lead and would never look back.

The game hit a sour note when Bulldogs centre Reubenn Rennie was put on report for a dangerous shot on Eli Levido, who was forced from the field and unable to return.

As the sun began to poke through the clouds over Sydney Olympic Park, it was some Sitiveni Moceidreke brilliance that set up a second four-pointer for the visitors; the fullback put the ball to boot for a short stab kick before toeing it off the ground for a flying Samisoni Langi. Langi got his first try of 2016 before Moceidreke converted, sending North Sydney into the sheds with a 12-4 advantage.

Canterbury-Bankstown enjoyed significant field position early in the second stanza but were unable to make the most of it as Brad Abbey sent a cutout pass into touch. They defended their error and after a line break to Dane Chisholm eventually found themselves back in an attacking position. Once again the Bulldogs were offering very little in attack and were unable to come up with points on the Bears’ line.

Eventually the Bulldogs hit back through a Raymond Faitala-Mariner line break and while it was a questionable pass to set up Chisholm under the posts, it brought the home side within striking distance of North Sydney.

The momentum, however, was short-lived; second-rower Jack Gosiewski muscled his way over for the Bears just three minutes later and with the conversion missed they led 16 points to 10.

The miserable weather was starting to get to the players and when Cody Walker slotted a field goal in the 72nd minute for a seven-point lead, they made their intentions to wrap up the game clear.

The Bulldogs weren’t going to die wondering and Tyrone Phillips soon chased down a long-range kick to come close to scoring, with Hughes sin-binned for holding the Bulldogs centre down.

Abbey and Rennie made the most of their one-man advantage with a fantastic try to Rennie, converted to get Canterbury-Bankstown within a single point with just a minute remaining.

The North Sydney defence proved impenetrable, however, eventually handing the Bulldogs another heartbreaking defeat. At full-time the score was 17-16.


North Sydney 17 (B Gregorius, S Langi, J Gosiewski tries; E Levido 2 goals; C Walker field goal)

def

Canterbury 16 (J McInally, D Chisholm, R Rennie tries; B Abbey, Chisholm goals)

Sorry I didn't post this preview, but it makes a bit more sense about the Round 8 team change.

Previews | Intrust Super Premiership NSW Round 8

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs v North Sydney Bears
ANZ Stadium, Saturday 23rd April
12:40pm – LIVE on Fox Sports channel 501

The Bulldogs and Bears face off as last-start losers in Round 8, having enjoyed the bye last week but losing to the Jets and Warriors respectively in Round 6. They will each hope to have improved on certain areas for this matchup, in the first Intrust Super Premiership NSW game at ANZ Stadium this year.

For the home side, there has been a reshuffle in their pack since their 22-28 loss to Newtown; starting prop Ray Moujali makes way for Jake Kamire, Pat O’Hanlon is replaced by Renouf To’Omaga while Bronson Garlick regains Graig Garvey’s starting hooking position – although he is expected to be dropped off an extended NRL bench to play on Saturday. North Sydney are closer to the side that lost 30-12 to New Zealand in Round 6, as Jokatama Dokinavalu replaces Fred Junior Mauala at prop and Jordan Latham joins the bench for Brock Gray. Winger Dane Nielsen is also likely to be replaced come game day, having travelled with the Rabbitohs for their NRL clash in Brisbane.

Still winless in 2016, the men from Belmore have earned a reputation throughout the league of establishing early leads and inviting teams back into games; Bears coach Ben Gardiner, however, isn’t taking his opposition lightly.

“The Bulldogs have shown some really good glimpses of what they can do,” Gardiner told NSWRL.com.au. “They’ve been right in games and they’ve played really well in games, they’ve probably just been a little bit unlucky with calls and stuff like that, so we’re going to have to be right on our game. Most of our focus will be on us and what we can improve.”

The North Sydney mentor is excited to revisit Sydney Olympic Park this weekend and is hopeful of some strong support at ANZ Stadium.

“We’ve got a lot of Bears fans out there that we’d like to see get out to ANZ Stadium in the Red and Black and give us some support out at the game,” Gardiner said. “We look forward to seeing as many people as possible watch us, whether that’s on TV or out at the ground.”

Key match-up: The Bears are among the least experienced teams when it comes to NRL appearances and as such have flown under the radar to sit middle of the road (seventh) almost a third of the way through the regular season. Second-rowers Cheyne Whitelaw and Patrice Siolo, however, have impressed so far in the competition and face stiff opposition in Canterbury’s mid-season recruits Raymond Faitala-Mariner and Lamar Liolevave. The young Bulldogs will hope to be settled in for their second and third games at their new club and while their opposite numbers are yet to get a taste of the top grade, this will be an intriguing match-up and will heavily influence the outcome.

Where it will be won: It seems obvious what the Bulldogs need to do to win this contest – an 80-minute performance is essential to register their first win of the year. Gardiner, however, has been less-than-satisfied with his side’s consistency and will hope to have ironed out the creases in attack throughout the extended break.

Norths play Wests Tigers this week.

Round 8 was Justin Hunt's first game of the year after suffering a back injury in the Club's final trial match against the Cronulla Sharks.


ISP Team Of The Week Rounds 7-8
Simon Masterton
Mon 25th April, 2016

Every week of the Intrust Super Premiership, NSWRL.com.au picks the best-performers of the previous round. With the six games split across Rounds 7 and 8, here's who impressed us the most over the past fortnight.

1 – Justin Hunt (Wests Tigers)

The swap between Hunt and former fullback Watson Heleta proved a worthwhile one in the Tigers' demolition of the Magpies at Ringrose Park on Sunday – the new custodian ran a huge 26 times for 247 metres in a dominant performance. With two offloads, two line-break assists and seven tackle busts to suit, Hunt looked to inject himself into the Tigers' attack at every opportunity. He is one of many Tigers putting their hand up for first grade spots, which might be up for grabs following the NRL side's Round 8 thrashing.

2 – Josh Addo-Carr (Wests Tigers, third appearance)

Addo-Carr had enjoyed an impressive opening six matches in the Intrust Super Premiership NSW this year, rightfully earning an NRL debut in Round 7. The known speedster scored a try in that match and turned more than a few heads with a good all-round performance, leading many to question why he was overlooked last weekend. Addo-Carr responded perfectly on Sunday, however, with a first-half hat-trick and an exciting try assist to set up the Tigers' 40-18 scoreline. It should be a reasonably safe bet that Addo-Carr will get a second crack at the top grade sooner rather than later.

3 – Brayden Wiliame (Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, second appearance)

Wiliame earned his first Team Of The Week selection through a four-try demolition of the Roos in Round 6 and he followed it up a week later with another two against competition favourites Mounties. As the Mount Pritchard side appeared to shut up shop midway through the second half, Wiliame was one player who refused to give up, breaking six tackles, crossing twice in quick succession and setting one up as the Sea Eagles mounted a spirited fightback. Despite a well-known and unfortunate NRL record, his tryscoring form was hard to overlook and Wiliame gets another crack at first grade in Round 8.

4 – Michael Chee Kam (Wests Tigers)

Chee Kam, along with Addo-Carr, was a significant reason for the Tigers' dominant display; the usual second-rower was in fine form with an early four-pointer and the Tigers never looked back. The 24-year-old then set up Addo-Carr, before the winger returned the favour, resulting in a double for Chee Kam and a potent attacking combination. Chee Kam was hard to contain, also breaking seven tackles in the big win.

5 – James Tuitahi (Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles)

Mostly on the opposite side to Wiliame, Tuitahi was a force to be reckoned with for the Sea Eagles and also bagged a double as the visitors fell just short. His 193 metres were, unsurprisingly, the most of that game, which came through a line-break and a number of half-breaks as the Mounties defence began to tire – but Tuitahi's game could best be remembered for an incredible try-saving effort on Mounties fullback Zac Santo.

6 – Fa'amanu Brown (Newtown Jets, second appearance)

An incredible first-half performance against the Cutters earns Brown the number six jersey in the Team Of The Week – but having come from the field midway through the second stanza, the Jets playmaker narrowly misses out on the captaincy. Brown started at halfback and played much of his 58 minutes at dummy-half, but the switch didn't hinder his attacking prowess; he set up Travis Robinson for the side's first, before scoring the next two himself in the space of seven minutes. Also with eight tackle breaks, it's little wonder that Illawarra regained control to win soon after Brown's day ended.

7 – Josh Drinkwater (Wests Tigers, second appearance, captain)

Drinkwater has been in solid form for the Tigers all year and has been unlucky to only make the Team Of The Week twice, but it was clear for all to see in Round 8. While the halfback is officially awarded three try assists, he was involved in six of the side's seven four-pointers – including one he scored himself in the first half. Finally, Drinkwater kicked six goals from seven attempts to ensure his side's final scoreline accurately reflected their dominance over Wentworthville.

8 – Zane Tetevano (Wyong Roos, fifth appearance)

The Wyong prop makes his fifth consecutive Team Of The Week with a typically busy 80-minute performance, running 21 times for a huge 213 metres. While the Roosters' forwards stocks are due for a boost with players returning from injury, Tetevano's recent form must at least have him a handy back-up for coach Trent Robinson.

9 – Hugh Pratt (Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, third appearance)

Despite the points only coming for Manly in the final 25 minutes against Mounties, the visitors played hard for 80 minutes – and their hooker was a large part of that. Pratt made 50 tackles on the day, which is the most of Rounds 7 and 8, also kick-starting the Sea Eagles' late flurry of points with a perfectly-timed grubber to Wiliame in goal.

10 – Albert Vete (New Zealand Warriors, second appearance)

Along with Tetevano, Vete was one of the only two forwards in Rounds 7 and 8 to reach a double century of running metres. The Warriors prop ran 200 metres exactly, busted three tackles, came up with two offloads and made 33 tackles, putting in the hard yards to help deliver his side a valuable home victory.

11 – Jarrad Kennedy (Mounties, fourth appearance)

For the second time this season, Kennedy was named our Man Of The Round in Round 7 after a strong performance against the Sea Eagles. The 27-year-old was deserving of his two tries – both coming off good support play – and he also topped the team's tackle count with 33. Kennedy is a significant reason Mounties remain the competition favourites.

12 – Raymond Faitala-Mariner (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs)

In just his second appearance for the Bulldogs, Faitala-Mariner impressed many and displayed his first grade credentials on Saturday. The second-rower ran for a game-high 166 metres in Canterbury-Bankstown's heartbreaking one-point defeat, also breaking into space in the second half to set up Dane Chisholm under the posts. His five offloads also provided continuous energy – something the Bulldogs had lacked late in games.

13 – Cheyne Whitelaw (North Sydney Bears)

Whitelaw had not previously made a Team Of The Week, but was outstanding in the Bears' win over the Bulldogs to be named our Man Of The Round in Round 8. The lock forward ran 20 times for 139 metres and muscled up for a huge 47 tackles, which was imperative in the wet conditions at ANZ Stadium.

14 – Samisoni Langi (North Sydney Bears)

Langi played his first game of the 2016 Intrust Super Premiership NSW season against the Bulldogs on Saturday, with a stellar performance to help the side to victory. The utility was an ideal replacement for injured halfback Eli Levido in the first half, setting up a try and scoring one himself as North Sydney edged out Canterbury-Bankstown.

15 – Dylan Kelly (Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles)

Kelly was electric for the Sea Eagles, constantly providing options in attack and muscling up in defence. The second-rower made 150 metres with the ball in hand, courtesy of three tackle breaks and a line-break, while his four offloads helped provide three line-break assists and a try assist. The huge numbers have Kelly unlucky not to make the starting side in the Team Of The Week; his 28 tackles show he was valuable without the ball as well.

16 – Chris Smith (Wyong Roos)

Smith earned himself a starting second row position as a late inclusion before the Roos' Round 7 clash – before his 157 metres from 12 runs earned him a maiden selection in our top 17. A few very hard runs and 22 tackles has the Darwin-raised second-rower on our radar in 2016.

17 – Jai Ingram (Wyong Roos, third appearance)

Smith formed just one part of Wyong's menacing back row against the Panthers, with Ingram just as impressive in the dreary conditions at Morry Breen Oval. In Ingram's 17 runs he made 147 metres and busted five tackles, eventually bringing the second-rower a try to put the result beyond doubt. Despite only making 19 tackles, his hard-hitting was felt from the sidelines in the Roos' impressive victory.

In what was a shortened week in the Intrust Super Premiership NSW, the North Sydney Bears picked up a close win over the Canterbury Bulldogs, while the Wests Tigers put forward a dominant performance against the Wentworthville Magpies.

Eight teams had the week off with byes, meaning only the two games were played over the weekend.
