South Sydney has made a couple of changes to its team for tonight's game against Parramatta:

1) No. 20 Siosifa Talakai is if for no. 3 Aaron Grey
2) No. 21 Luke Kelly is in for no. 7 Adam Reynolds

The post at www.rabbitohs.com.au/news/2017/08/31/updated_squads_for_r.af_news.html says that "Halfback Adam Reynolds (ankle) and centre Aaron Gray (hip) have been ruled out through injury."

It's a bad time to lose Luke Kelly but I wish him well. All of our Souths-contracted players should be trying to impress the NRL coach and get selected. I was a bit ambivalent about Kelly earlier in the season, but he, Eli Levido and Adam Douehi have started working well together.

Two more changes to Souths - Sam Burgess and Angus Crichton are both out as well which means that all four reserves are into the final squad of 17.

I note that nowhere in the NSWRL website does it mention that Steele Sports will also be covering the game - not in the preview, not in the match centre. This station has promoted this competition all year by providing coverage and this is how it gets treated by the NSWRL. Disgraceful.

Also below is the NSWRL game preview.

North Sydney Bears (6) v Newcastle Knights (7) – Elimination Final
UOW Jubilee Oval, Sunday 3 September
12pm
Streamed LIVE on NSWRL.com.au


The Bears and Knights meet to kick off a triple-header of live-streamed matches on Sunday afternoon, both hoping to stay alive in the competition. It will require a reversal in fortunes for Newcastle, while the Bears welcome back some key men as they look to continue their winning run.

North Sydney’s past six games have brought three wins – one of which came over their Sunday opposition, albeit by a two-point margin. Newcastle boast the same success rate from their past six matches and importantly, all but one of those games have finished with no more than six points the difference. Simon Woolford’s men are certainly prepared for a close encounter, but admits the team has a big challenge ahead of them.

“We’ve played them twice this year and they’ve beaten us twice,” Woolford tells NSWRL.com.au. “Obviously they’ve got some key NRL players that probably drop back into their team this week.

“They’ve got some big strong forwards, we need to match them there and Luke Kelly in the halves is quite creative too. He hurt a few weeks ago when we played them at North Sydney so we’re going to have to do a good job on him.”

Recent history:
North Sydney certainly have bragging rights over Newcastle in recent times; they’ve emerged victorious in their past five encounters. The last of those was easily the closest when the Bears won 18-16 at North Sydney Oval, but the Knights will take a lot from that match when looking ahead to Sunday. It was only an Eli Levido penalty goal a minute before full-time which separated them on that occasion, but the rest of the game points towards a close one again this weekend.

Where it will be won:
As Woolford explained, Luke Kelly will be vital to the Bears’ chances in Kogarah, with the Knights aiming to shut him down as much as possible. The experienced halfback was partnered by Team of the Year selection Ed Murphy in Round 25, but this week Murphy looks likely to shift back to the centres and allow Adam Doueihi to play five-eighth.

The Knights have often found points via livewire fullback Nick Meaney and five-eighth Jaelen Feeney this year, so Sunday afternoon will be no exception. They will be without regular halfback Jack Cogger, who has not played in two weeks, but Will Pearsall is a strong replacement. Their back line of Tom Hughes, Brendan Elliot, Jacob Gagan and Chanel Mata’utia is also an experienced one; three have NRL experience while the other was named in the Team of the Year.

Devastating blow to the Bears chances.
It is really going to be tough to get the win.

Not much to say about today's game except that we were outclassed. Newcastle scored six tries to four, but it wasn't as close as this might suggest. I watched on nswrl.com.au. Tasi's try in particular is worth watching, especially the crossfield kick from Robinson. The highlights will be on the NSWRL website.

There were quite a few changes to the side, including three players in different numbers. Four players dropped out of the 17 originally named - 7 Luke Kelly, 8 Jason Clarke, 13 Cheyne Whitelaw and 14 Thomas Freebairn. The additions were Latrell Robinson who went to 5/8 with Adam Douehi switching to 1/2, Tom Perrin, Siosifa Talakai and Jamel Hunt. I don't know how Talakai was eligible to play - he played 10 minutes for South Sydney NRL on Friday night.

The final lineup up was:

1 Eli LEVIDO
2 Tautalatasi TASI
3 Siti MOCEIDREKE
4 Edward MURPHY
5 Abbas MISKI
18 Latrell ROBINSON (not originally listed)
7 Adam DOUEHI (originally no. 6)
17 Clayton WILLIAMS
9 Bradley DEITZ (c)
10 Fred MAUALA
11 Anthony CHERRINGTON
12 Piki ROGERS
21 Patrice SIOLO (originally no. 16)

14 Tom PERRIN (not originally listed)
16 Toby RUDOLPH (originally no. 15)
19 Siosifa TALAKAI (not originally listed)
20 Jamel HUNT (not originally listed)

Out
7 Luke KELLY (played NRL)
8 Jason CLARK (played NRL)
13 Cheyne WHITELAW (injured)
14 Thomas FREEBAIRN (?)

All 17 players got game time.

The final score was:
Newcastle Knights 40 (Brendan ELLIOT 2 (16m, 49m), Bradie SMITH (4m), Nicholas MEANEY (25m), William PEARSALL (57m), Joseph MORRIS (68m) tries; Nicholas MEANEY 6 conversions (5m, 18m, 26m, 51m, 58m, 69m), 2 penalties (21m, 52m)) df
North Sydney Bears 18 (Abbas MISKI (29m), Tautalatasi TASI (37m), Bradley DEITZ (65m), Eli LEVIDO (72m) tries; Eli LEVIDO 1 conversion (66m))
Half time Newcastle 20-8.

The match report from the NSWRL website is below.

We'll finish 7th or 8th, depending on the result of the other elimination final between Mounties and Illawarra. A disappointing end to what has been a hot and cold season, although one in which I don't think we were ever out of the top 8.

Dominant Knights Eliminate Depleted Bears
Ryan Selvage (Twitter: @RyanSelvage)
Sun 3rd September, 01:45PM

A dominant performance from the Newcastle Knights has seen them progress into week two of the semi-finals after a 40-18 victory over the North Sydney Bears.

Brendan Elliott was a strike weapon for the Knights with two tries, while halfback Will Pearsall and hooker Tom Starling beautifully steered the ship that kept their side alive in the 2017 season.

The Bears came into the match heavily depleted thanks to a large number of South Sydney Rabbitohs players missing in action on Friday night, while lock of the year Cheyne Whitelaw picked up an untimely injury during the week, which forced him out of the contest.

A Pearsall bomb wasn’t judged properly by Eli Levido, which caused a dropout, before the crafty halfback put his lock Bradie Smith through a big gap to post first points for the Knights.

North Sydney had the next chance to score that the Knights defended without conceding, before consecutive sets allowed Newcastle to build pressure that led to a Brendan Elliott try.

A penalty in front of the posts gave the Knights a gift two points, before another penalty gave them field position yet again, before one of the most exciting young prospects in the competition, Nick Meaney, scored and converted to take Newcastle to a 20-0 lead.

The Bears had to be next to score if they were to stay in the contest, and thankfully they did just that through their powerhouse winger Abbas Miski in the right corner after a left-to-right shift.

While that try was very conventional, the next was the complete opposite as the Bears threw the ball around on the fifth tackle like it was a hot potato. The skill of both five-eighth and winger came into play when Latrell Robinson put in a pin-point cross-field bomb under pressure to the wing of Tautalatasi Tasi, who snatched the ball out of the air and planted it down with perfection.

Newcastle started the second half with a bang, crossing the line that would have put the margin out to 18 however Jacob Gagan was unable to ground the ball. North Sydney then went up the other end of the field with a similar chance, but a bad pass to Adam Doueihi from dummy half.

A first tackle error gave Newcastle another chance just 10 minute into the second half, and Elliott took it upon himself to score with some individual brilliance when he put in a grubber, chased hard, won the race and planted the ball down.

Another penalty goal notched the margin out further, before the Knights built more pressure thanks to consecutive forced dropouts that led to a Pearsall try as he hit and spun through the Bears defence.

Brad Deitz and Joseph Morris scored a try each from dummy half for their respective sides, before Levido scored a great try when he ran across-field and straightened through a hole which made the final score 40-18.

The lottery of NSW Cup finals continued this year with the three lower-placed sides winning in the first week of finals. And the one game where the higher-placed team won went into extra time. The full results were:

Wyong Roos (1st) 34 df Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (4th) 26 aet
North Sydney Bears (6th) 18 lost to Newcastle Knights (7th) 40
Mounties (5th) 26 lost to Illawarra (8th) 30
New Zealand Warriors (2nd) 20 lost to Penrith Panthers (3rd) 36

Mounties and North Sydney Bears are eliminated.

Next week's games are both on Sunday at Kogarah Jubilee Oval:

* Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (4th) v Illawarra (8th) @ 5:00PM (Winner to play Penrith)
* New Zealand Warriors (2nd) v Newcastle Knights (7th) @ 7:05PM (Winner to play Wyong)

Of the 12 clubs that field sides or have feeder sides in the ISP, Wests Tigers was the only one that didn't make finals in any grade.

* Penrith made finals in all three grades.
* Sydney Roosters/Wyong Roos made finals in NRL and ISP.
* Parramatta, Cronulla and Manly made finals in NRL and U20s.
* Illawarra/St George Illawarra and Newcastle made finals in ISP and U20s.
* New Zealand Warriors, Canterbury, Mounties and North Sydney made finals in ISP.

Unfortunately, South Sydney U20s finished 9th, level with Manly on 30 points, but missing out on 8th spot due to having a slightly inferior F&A: Manly had +113 while Souths had +106. It can be a game of inches at times.

A really gutsy effort from the players who took the field today. All the players except for Cherington, Doueihi, Talakai and Rudolf were Bears contracted players.

It is great to see Eli, Tasi, Deitz and Abbas cross for the Bears tries. These players have been mainstays for the Bears for the past two seasons.
