This Saturday sees the final round of the home and away, and the second and final leg of the 2017 Frank Hyde Shield. The team list has been posted on the North Sydney website (copy below).

South Sydney plays later on Saturday afternoon, so we may not get any extra players this week. Dave Tyrell and Dean Britt are listed as reserves, but Jack Gosiewski (named in the original 21-man squad) is out. So it Alex Johnston, but that's because of a hamstring injury.

North Sydney is currently 6th but can finish anywhere from 5th to 8th. The teams in the top four are decided, but not the finishing order. Ninth placed Wentworthville is the only team that can make the eight:

5th Mounties 28 (+23)
6th North Sydney 27 (+12)
7th Newcastle 27 (-24)
8th Illawarra 26 (-78)
9th Wenty 24 (+64)

All six games are live this week, five of them involving the above five teams:

Sat 3PM: Illawarra v Canterbury (4th)
Sat 3PM: Newtown (11th) v North Sydney
Sat 3PM: Mounties v Blacktown (10th)
Sat 3PM: Wyong (1st) v Newcastle
Sun 1:45PM: Warriors (2nd) v Penrith (3rd)
Sun 3PM: Wenty v Wests Tigers (12th)

August 22, 2017
by Steve Little

The Frank Hyde Shield is on the line this Saturday.

The first leg of the Frank Hyde Shield fell to the Jets 16-12 in Round Ten of competition.

This means the Bears need to grab a victory by more than five points to secure the Shield.

A semi-final berth is also imminent however the Bears need a strong performance against a Jets side who will have nothing to lose on the day.

Come down to Henson Park and support the Bears as we head into the business end of the season.

North Sydney Bears Coach Ben Gardiner has named the following team for the second leg of the Frank Hyde Shield.

Just one change to North Sydney's lineup - Dean Britt (no. 21) is in for Jason Clark (no. 8). A second change is that Clayton Williams is in no. 18 rather than 16.

NS started with a lot more intent this week, with two tries in the first 12 minutes, but fell away to let Newtown back into the game. At half time the Bears lead 16-12.

First half
2 mins - What a great start for the Bears. Ed Murphy gets a pass from Tautalatasi Tasi and runs 90m to score. Newtown had only made one tackle. Eli Levido converts. NS 6-0.

12 mins - Newtown punished with three consecutive penalties and a player put in the bin. NS immediately capitalises with some clever play by Luke Kelly and Eli Levido and a pass to Tasi who still has some work to do before scoring in the corner. Levido misses with his conversion attempt. NS 10-0.

16 mins - Despite having only 12 men, Newtown get on the board with a try. Lazy defence according to the commentators. Converted. NS 10-6. Commentators think Newtown might go back to back.

18 mins - Newtown makes a break and, with a two man overlap on the outside, looks set to score, only for the player who made the break to send the ball the wrong way. A big let off for the Bears. Newtown looking good in attack.

33 mins - Abbas Miski scores while I'm on the phone so i don't know the details. Levido converts. NS 16-6.

39 mins - NS concedes a try seconds before half time. NS had looked set to score themselves just beforehand, but for a dropped ball, an error which was followed by a Newtown line break and was compounded by a penalty. Converted. NS 16-12.

A scoreless second half, but gee it was exciting. Newtown sounded the better team, but NS showed some character, helped a bit by some poor attacking options and some sloppy handling from the Jets.

Both games in the 2017 Frank Hyde Shield finished 16-12, with one win apiece.

North Sydney will play Newcastle in the 6v7 qualifying final next week. A loss will mean the end of the season. I got the impression that at least three of next week's finals games will be at Kogarah on Saturday.

Second half
End to end stuff for the first 25-30 minutes of the second half in what's described as an entertaining half, but after that it seemed to be all Newtown. Kelly unlucky not to get three 40/20s during the half, missing by centimetres each time. At times, NS was "lucky to hang on". Commentators say that one criticism of North Sydney is that it is often a 60 minute team rather than an 80 minute team and the Bears can look very flat as they did today. A particularly tense time for NS after Levido drops a bomb a few metres out - probably his first mistake of the game - and some ensuing pressure. Newtown got a penalty, but gives away a penalty of its own to ease things for the Bears.

Further pressure 15 minutes to go when Tasi spills a kick and is picked up by a NS player who is offside. Newtown on the attack, but some good defence from the Bears. A fourth tackle kick from dummy half goes touch in goal. Commentators say that the kicker showed good vision to get behind the NS defensive line, but his team mates showed poor anticipation as none of them looked to chase the ball. It might have been a try or a line drop out if they had.

With six minutes to go, Newtown gets a penalty on the back of consecutive sets. Commentators aren't sure what it was for, but given that the ball went loose and was picked up by a NS player who was racing away, it was probably a strip. NS holds on with Newtown losing the ball over the line. The crowd is very much behind the Jets. Newtown wins against the feed, but the ref calls it up.

The results from today's other three games are in - Illawarra has drawn, Newcastle has lost and Mounties had a big win, so NS will finish 6th regardless of what happens today. But to finish the home and away season with a win would be good.

Another Newtown try goes begging when a loose pass is knocked on by the intended recipient. However, NS loses the ball on the third tackle. Just two minutes to go, and Newtown gets a scrum on the half way. NS survives the set, despite letting a bomb bounce and having the ball regained by Newtown; however, the second kick is well fielded by Murphy 11 metres out. Only 45 seconds left and NS counts the clock down with some slow sets.

Almost right - three games will be at Kogarah on Sunday, not Saturday, and, if I heard correctly, will be broadcast by Steele Sports. One game is between second placed NZ Warriors and third placed Penrith Panthers. You'd think finishing second would get home ground advantage. The full schedule is:

Saturday 2nd September 2017
Wyong Roos (1st) v Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (4th) @ Allianz Stadium, 12:40PM

Sunday 3rd September 2017
North Sydney Bears (6th) v Newcastle Knights (7th) @ UOW Jubilee, Kogarah, 12:00 Noon
Mounties (5th) v Illawarra (8th) @ UOW Jubilee, Kogarah, 2:00PM
New Zealand Warriors (2nd) v Penrith Panthers (3rd) @ UOW Jubilee, Kogarah, 4:00PM

The article at www.nswrl.com.au/news/2017/08/27/fixtures_nswrl_final.html concludes with a note saying that "timing and order of games can change at the direction of the NSWRL".

Bears Hang On For Win Over Jets
Andre Cupido
Sat 26th August, 04:45PM

The North Sydney Bears have put in a hard-fought defensive display to hold off a valiant Newtown Jets outfit 16-12 at Henson Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Bears rolled through three tries in the opening 35 minutes to take a commanding 16-6 lead, but a last-gasp try on the half-time buzzer from Newtown set up an exciting second stanza.

The Bears battled strongly for a majority of the contest as the Jets dominated possession and field position, but it was North Sydney’s tireless defensive efforts that ultimately proved the difference.

Eli Levido was a shining light for North Sydney with two try-assists, while Cheyne Whitelaw continued his good form with another strong display.

The Bears were able to draw first blood in just their first set of six after Tautalatasi Tasi made a break down the left-hand touchline before drawing the fullback for captain Ed Murphy who streaked away under the posts for the first try of the afternoon.

The Jets were reduced to 12 men after conceding four consecutive penalties on their own goal-line, and the one-man advantage eventually proved costly as Eli Levido found Tasi with a perfect cut-out pass for the Bears second try of the contest.

An error off the ensuing set from the Bears invited the Jets straight onto the attack, and they wasted little time in capitalising on the rare chance as Jack Williams barged his way over for a valuable four-pointer.

Joseph Paulo converted to set a 10-6 score line after 18 minutes.

Edrick Lee made a break just moments later with players looming in support on his outside, only for his pass to find the ground and the scrambling Bears defence pouncing on the loose ball.

Ill-disciplined continued to mount a heap of pressure on the Jets, and the Bears soon found themselves on the scoresheet once again as Levido finished off a classy backline movement with another pinpoint cut out pass for Abbas Miski who crossed in the right-hand corner.

Levido nailed the sideline conversion to take a 10-point lead with just seven minutes remaining in the first half.

The Jets had the final say of the first 40 minutes after Leigh Higgins showed his pace to make an evasive run over half-way before Brent Anderson reaped the rewards just a few tackles later with a vital try right on the half-time siren.

Paulo converted from close-range to close the lead to just four points at the break.

The Jest were fighting valiantly as they were desperately searching for the lead for the first time in the arm wrestle contest, but were unable to threaten the committed the defence of the Bears.

A beautiful pass from Jets five-eighth Joseph Paulo was the start of a promising raid down the right-hand side, with Anderson going extremely close to claiming his second try however pulled up a metre short of the try line.

Some scorching bombs from Newtown couldn’t be defused from the Jets with Levido and Tasi fumbling the ball on two occasions, but the Jets just couldn’t sustain any further pressure with the Bears relentless goal-line defence proving too strong.

Time became the enemy for the home side but a seven-tackle set was the Jets final opportunity to snatch a late victory, but a poor last tackle option was the final straw in a hard-fought contest with the Bears holding on to claim as gutsy 16-12 victory.

North Sydney Bears 16 (E Murphy, T Tasi, A Miski tries; E Levido 2 goals) def
Newtown Jets 12 (J Williams, B Anderson tries; J Paulo 2 goals)
