The NS team list is on the NS website.

On the face of it, it's a game we should win, but WT beat us at Chatswood Oval earlier in the season for what should have been a formality. We had won four straight to start the season, but that loss started the roller coaster.

The game is being covered by Steele Sports Radio www.steelesports.com.au:



It's retro round (in the NRL anyway), hence the cartoon image from the 1980s. I note that Steele Sports has adapted the old NSWRFL logo in the top corners. (It didn't become the NSWRL until the 1984 season.)

South Sydney had named four reserves for tonight's game against St George Illawarra. Only two are still listed on the updated team list on the NRL site - 18. Anthony Cherrington and 20. David Tyrrell. The other two were Jack Gosiewki and Campbell Graham who were also named for Norths.

One thing about the NRL/NSWRL scheduling that annoys me is that next week, we play St George Illawarra's feeder side Illawarra in a game that will be televised by Fox. If NS is going to play before an NRL game, why can't it be a South Sydney game? Why couldn't this week or next week have been the triple header? I have been to a few NRL games where NS has played in a curtain raiser, but none of these have involved Souths.

On a separate point, next week's game was originally scheduled for NSO but was moved to Kogarah for Foxtel; it's still technically a NS home game.

An even later change (unless I missed it) - Campbell Graham started on the wing in place of Robert Jennings. Apart from that, Souths was 1-17, which means that we may also get Cherrington and Tyrrell.

According to Steele Sports, it's free entry at Leichhardt today if that's any incentive to get there.

Three changes to the starting lineup:

17 Siti MOCEIDREKE in for 3 Campbell GRAHAM who played NRL
18 David TYRELL in for 8 Fred MAUALA who goes to the bench
19 Anthony CHERRINGTON in for 13 Cheyne WHITELAW who goes to the bench

The one who dropped off the bench was 14 Piki ROGERS.

A good first half effort from the Bears - six tries, including three to Tasi - to give the Bears a 32-nil lead. Let's hope they keep it up - for and against will probably decide some places on the final table.

My notes are below, along with the tweets from NS. The Steele Sports coverage is running a couple of minutes behind the play (to judge from the updates on the NSWRL match day site), so the times may not quite align with the live action.

3:07 A try to Tautalatasi Tasi after three and a half minutes, helped by Wests Tigers giving away a penalty on the second tackle of the game and a subsequent line drop out. Levido's conversion attempt was missed. NS 4-0.

3:13 A well executed try to Siti Moceidreke, a great ball from Luke Kelly according to the commentators. He held the ball up and kept the WT defence guessing. NS 10-0.

3:22 A third try to NS, this one from Luke Kelly who took the defence on and beat them. Commentators impressed by how much his game has improved during the season. Levido converts. NS 16-0.

3:27 Deitz makes a dummy half break and NS looks to have got through the WT defence, but WT manage to knock the ball down to give NS six again 35m from the WT goal line. Another try to Tasi in the corner, helped by another penalty. In the post try discussion, the commentators are saying how well Kelly and Levido are combining when Levido comes into the line. Levido converts .NS 22-0.

3:31 Ed Murphy and Abbas Miski combine from 50m out for NS's fifth try. Murphy made the initial break and found Miski who showed "amazing pace" to finish the move. Levido converts .NS 28-0.

3:34 Murphy look to have scored a try and the commentators say what a great effort it was, but the ref ruled that he dropped the ball over the line.

3:38 NS attacking the line, Jack Gosiewski puts in a deft little grubber that finds Tasi in the corner for his third try. Levido's attempt hits the upright and bounces out. NS 32-0.

3:40 Murphy and Miski combine again, but Miski is absolutely smashed by the WT defence to save a certain try.

3:42 A punch up after a high tackle. Commentators loving it, with cries of "retro round". They suggest shades of Steve Roach and Mario Fenech. Mark Soden gets a mention. Gosiewski gets ten in the bin.

A quieter second half for the Bears, having done enough in the first. The final score was 42-10, meaning that the second half was 10-all. Five tries to Tasi.

My second half notes are below.

*****
4:00 A good start to the second half for the Bears. WT concedes a penalty in the second minute. From the resulting set, a not very impressive NS kick on the last rebounds off a WT defender, straight to Tasi who goes in for his fourth try. Levido converts. NS 38-0.

4:05 Murphy and Miski combine again but the cut out pass to Kelly is dropped with the line open.

4:09 WT in for its first try. Conversion attempt missed. NS 38-4.

4:12 A break by WT looks set for a try when Levido is beaten, but Kelly comes in to make the tackle.

4:15 A WT player is taken from the field after a high shot. NS captain Brad Deitz is arguing with the ref and the commentators are wondering what he could possibly be upset about. NS is leading 38-4, his teammate has just smacked someone in the head, and Deitz is arguing with the ref.

4:17 Indiscipline from the Bears is giving away penalties and making easy field position for WT which they capitalise on to score a second try. This one is converted, NS 38-10.

4:24 NS gets another set of six after forcing a line drop out, Levido sends Tasi in for his fifth try with a beautiful pass after drawing in some defenders. Levido misses with his conversion attempt. NS 42-10.

4:30 Commentators pondering who should get man of the match - decide on both Kelly for his first half performance and Tasi for his five tries (although note that he was on the end of some good backline play). Levido and Gosiewski were also mentioned.

Second half tweets
45' R22 @ 4th try for Tasi Levido kick good / 0-38 Wests Tigers V Bears
54' R22 Try to Tigers kick missed / 4-38 Wests Tigers V Bears

Here's the report from the NSWRL website, written by Tony Dosen. I note that he says it was Deitz who put in the grubber that led to one of Tasi's tries. That would make more sense, but the SS commentators did say it was Gosiewski.

Dosen also says that as a result of the win, NS has "secured their place in this year’s finals series". Not quite. We could still finish as low as ninth if we lose our last three games and other results don't go our way. Our remaining games are against Illawarra, Penrith and Newtown. We've already lost against Penrith and Newtown this year, and Illawarra has shown improved form since we beat them at Nowra. But after that gloomy and doomy prognosis, one more win will see us finish in the eight.

Tasi Tears Up Tigers With Five-Try Haul

Tony Dosen

Sat 5th August, 05:00PM

A career-best five-try performance from winger Tautalatasi Tasi has propelled the North Sydney Bears to an easy 42-10 win over the Wests Tigers in their Intrust Super Premiership NSW match at Leichhardt Oval this afternoon.

North Sydney's win secured their place in this year’s finals series and was set up by a first-half attacking blitz that put the contest well out of reach of the young Tigers outfit.

The Bears wasted no time in getting going, scoring in just the third minute. After a repeat set from a goal-line dropout, a left-side shift late in the tackle count found Tasi, who finished off the movement to burst through two defenders to score the opening try.

Norths then extended the lead seven minutes later at the end of a penalty set when another left-side spread saw a sweet Luke Kelly pass send centre Sitiveni Mocidreke away for the visitors’ second try. Eli Levido converted for a 10-0 Bears lead.

With a welter of early possession in the first 20 minutes, the Bears continued on their merry way in the 19th minute when half Luke Kelly stepped through the Tigers defence from close range to score an easy solo try. Levido added the extras for a 16-0 Bears lead.

Following a Tigers turnover six minutes later, a simple backline spread through the hands saw Tasi score his second try in the corner. Levido again converted from touch and Norths led 22-0.

By this stage, the Bears were making line-breaks almost at will - switching play to the right edge from the restart set for centre Ed Murphy to burst into the clear and send Lebanese international winger Abbas Miski on a 45-metre diagonal run to score. Levido again added the extras and Norths had a commanding 28-0 lead.

North Sydney should have scored from the set following the next restart, with Murphy dropping the ball in goal when finishing off an extended second-phase play through multiple hands.

However, the Bears made amends on their next attack six minutes from half-time when hooker Brad Dietz made a half-break from close range down the left-hand blind side, before putting in a grubber kick in goal for Tasi to pick up the ball unopposed and complete a first-half hat-trick for a 32-0 Norths lead – which the Bears took to the break.

The first half ended on a fiery note when Bears back-rower Jack Gosiewski was sin-binned by referee Damien Brady for a late hit on Tigers interchange half Will Kitt that sparked an all-in melee.

Starting the second half with 12 men didn’t stop the Bears adding to their tally, however. A last-tackle grubber kick down the left four minutes into the second stanza took a ricochet off the Tigers defence for Mocidreke to pick up and pass to Tasi for his fourth try in the corner. Levido converted from touch to blow the Bears lead out to 38-0.

The Tigers finally got on the board 13 minutes into the second half when - on the back of a penalty set - fullback Christian Yassmin finished off a neat left-side raid to score in the corner for a 38-4 Norths lead.

After a long break by Tigers prop Ava Seumanufagai saw Yassmin in support get caught just short by Levido in cover, an ensuing flurry of penalties to the Tigers gave the home side enough sets for bench forward Wes Lolo to crash over and score. Luke Garner converted to move the Tigers into double figures at 38-10 with 20 minutes to play.

As the match wound down in the closing stages, Tasi’s red-letter day was not done yet.

A late Bears backline movement with 12 minutes left saw chain passing through the hands find Tasi - who did the rest to bag his fifth try in the left corner and round out the handsome 42-10 Norths victory.

Unbeaten in their last four games (three wins and a draw), the Bears will look to continue their late-season run of good form against Illawarra at UOW Jubilee Oval, Kogarah next Saturday at 12:40pm. The Tigers have a chance to get a win against the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles at HE Laybutt Fields, Blacktown next Sunday at 3pm.

North Sydney Bears 42 (T Tasi 5, L Kelly, S Moceidreke, A Miski tries; E Levido 5 goals) def
Wests Tigers 10 (C Yassmin, W Lolo tries; L Garner goal)
