We play ladder leaders Mounties this week in a round 12 home game. Mounties will be missing a few players who will be filling in gaps in the Canberra Raiders squad tonight, whereas we are at full strength as Sydney Roosters has a bye. However, a team doesn't get to be ladder leaders without having a bit of depth in its ranks.

There's no coverage that I can find - Steele Sports is doing three games this weekend, but not ours, while Hawkesbury FM is advertising its coverage of today's Penrith/Sea Eagles game.

The curtain raiser is a Jersey Flegg game between North Sydney Bears and Sydney Roosters, starting at 1:15PM. The women's team (in fact, all of the women's comp) has another bye.

Match details are below.

A very tight win for North Sydney this afternoon, with scores level for much of the game and never more than six points between the sides until the 77th minute when captain Tom Freebairn went over for the Bears fourth try, increasing the lead to eight points, and then to 10 with the conversion. The final score was 24-14. The win leaves us in third place.

The scoring went as follows:

North Sydney try - Sam Verrills 26'
North Sydney conversion - Brock Lamb 27' - NS 6-nil

Mounties try - Reubenn Rennie 33'
Mounties conversion - Andre Niko 35' - 6-all

Mounties try - Royce Hunt 43'
Mounties conversion - Andre Niko 45' - Mounties 12-6

North Sydney try - Bernard Lewis 49'
North Sydney conversion - Brock Lamb 50' - 12-all

Mounties penalty goal - Andre Niko 63' - Mounties 14-12

North Sydney try - Max Bailey 70'
North Sydney conversion - Brock Lamb 71' - NS 18-14

North Sydney try - Tom Freebairn 77'
North Sydney conversion - Brock Lamb 79' - NS 24-14

North Sydney Bears 24 (Sam Verrills 26', Bernard Lewis 49', Max Bailey 70', Tom Freebairn 77' tries; Brock Lamb 27' 50' 71' 79' conversions) df
Mounties 14 (Reubenn Rennie 33', Royce Hunt 43' tries; Andre Niko 35', 45' conversions; Andre Niko 63' penalty goal)
(Half time 6-all)

9. Bradley DEITZ

14. Sam VERRILLS came off the bench to start at hooker and
18. Daniel FIFITA (not previously named) was added to the bench although did not take the field

Another solid defensive effort from the bears. Mounties were all giants, absolute monsters across the park. Absolutely no subtlety to their game whatsoever, they were going to smash through the middle come hell or high water with absolutely no plan B.

In the end it was a great result and a real 80 minute effort. With some tough games to come that was a big 2 points. Souths now sit in 8th spot just 2 points behind us in 3rd position so the ladder remains very tight.
