This week's team is posted on the NS website (see link below). As I mentioned in last week's post, this week's game against the undefeated Mounties will be a test - after three rounds, the teams we've played so far are coming 7th (Wenty), 10th (Newcastle) and 11th (Sea Eagles). Mounties have played Canterbury (9th), Newtown (8th) and Penrith (4th). On the face of it, slightly stronger opposition, particularly Penrith.

The game is being covered by Steele Sports Radio:



South Sydney has named a six-man for tonight's game against Sydney Roosters: Damien Cook; Anthony Cherrington; Robbie Rochow; Zane Musgrove; Tyrell Fuimaono; and Sitiveni Moceidreke. Cherrington, Fuimaono and Moceidreke are also named for Norths. (I thought Moceidreke was contracted to Norths rather than Souths?)

George Burgess, Hymel Hunt and Braidon Burns are all suspended.

I see that he's now in the squad of 32 players in the South Sydney squad. His player profile at www.rabbitohs.com.au/team/profiles/sitiveni_moceidreke.html says that:

"Sitiveni Moceidreke joins the Rabbitohs in 2017 after a stand out performance playing with the North Sydney Bears. Scoring four tries in the ISP Cup round two match, Moceidreke has the speed and skills that will look to impress coach Michael Maguire."

Sounds like his form for North Sydney got him the contract. He made the starting side for tonight's game, onto the wing. And got a try in his NRL debut!

Tyrell Fuimaono and Anthony Cherrington dropped out of the squad, so I expect them to play for the Bears on Saturday.

Sounds like it's been a pretty rugged first half, and North Sydney leads 6-4. I've got a bit distracted in the last 20 minutes by the very exciting AFL Women's Grand Final. It's just ended, so NS will have my complete attention for the second half.

I'm listening through Steele Sports Radio. My notes are interspersed with the tweets from North Sydney and Mounties.

Half Time
North Sydney Bears 6 (Dane Nielsen try; Eli Levido 1 goal (penalty) from 2 attempts (conversion, penalty)) lead

An excellent win to the Bears, 12-4. Sounds like we can defend, and defend well.

Of the other three undefeated teams, only New Zealand Warriors won today so NS is second on F&A.

Full Time
North Sydney Bears 12 (Dane Nielsen, Ed Murphy tries; Eli Levido 2 goals (x2 penalties) from 4 attempts (x2 conversions, x2 penalties)) df
Mounties 4 (Dom Reardon try; 0 goals from 1 attempt)

Second half notes/tweets
4:06PM Fintan Commentators remark on how the game is being played between the Mounties goal line and the 40m line. But NS is not converting the field position into points.

4:07PM Fintan And just as they say that, Ed Murphy scores in the corner. Levido's conversion attempt misses.

4:07PM Mounties 49' #IntrustSuperPremiership try to @NthSydneyBears, comes from an error, Bears 10 lead Mounties 4

4:08PM North Sydney Bears 50' R4 @IntrustSuperPrm Ed Murphy scores for the Bears Conversion kick unsuccessful

4:16PM Fintan Bears get a penalty for a head high and Levido gets the goal.

4:16PM Mounties 59' #IntrustSuperPremiership and the penalties continue, @NthSydneyBears get one in front, Bears 12 lead Mounties 4

4:18PM North Sydney Bears 59' R4 @IntrustSuperPrm Eli Levido penalty kick successful 4-12 Mounties V Bears

4:27PM North Sydney Bears 70' R4 @IntrustSuperPrm Update 4-12 Mounties V Bears

4:36PM Fintan Just under five minutes to go and captain Brad Deitz is put into the bin for mouthing off at the ref. Bears still lead 12-4 but Mounties start the set 15m from the NS line. Siolo gives away a penalty, commentators think a second binning could be coming. NS defence is holding. A third penalty to Mounties inside the NS 10m line. Mounties looks set to score but a NS hand forces a scrum. Set finishes with NS forcing the ball dead in goal for a line drop out for probably the last play of the match. NORTH SYDNEY HAS STOOD UP. Outstanding effort.

4:40PM North Sydney Bears FULLTIME R4 @IntrustSuperPrm 4-12 Mounties V Bears

4:42PM Mounties FT #IntrustSuperPremiership @NthSydneyBears 12 have def Mounties 4. Spiteful game with a millions penalties.

Commentators have trouble deciding man of the match. Decide on Cheyne Whitelaw but think Eli Levido and Brad Deitz were unlucky to miss out.

Sounded like a great performance in a physical match. Good to beat one of the top teams.

The match report is on the NSWRL website. I love the headline.

Bears Roar to Fourth Straight Win
Tom Skolarikis

Sat 25th March, 04:45PM

North Sydney have extended their undefeated run in 2017 to four matches, after accounting for fellow competition front-runners by 12-4 in a fiery clash at Aubrey Keech Reserve.

While Mounties were aided by the late addition of former Queensland State of Origin representative, Dave Taylor, it would be the Bears who would fire, bringing an end to the home side’s impressive start to 2017.

The two tries to one effort from Norths would not be without controversy however, with tempers flaring in the dying moments of the clash — Bears hooker, Brad Deitz being sin-binned for a professional foul with four minutes in the match remaining, leaving the eventual victors a man down to finish the game.

Ill-discipline would would feature throughout the match, and the opening exchanges were no exception. Inside the first four minutes Mounties got multiple early scoring opportunities inside the Bears 20 metre line, but despite the momentum, Norths were able to repel the attacking raids with strong defence.

The Bears would get their own string of opportunities though when halfback, Eli Levido, forced a repeat-set via a well-weighted grubber-kick, setting up a number of scoring opportunities for his side that would apply pressure to the home team.

With 15 minutes in the half gone, Mounties kicked a crucial forty-twenty through Jordan Turner that would see the home-side park themselves firmly inside the Bears side of half-way. Two tackles later, Dominic Reardon would be the beneficiary when he steamed onto a long Turner cut-out pass to score in the corner, to make the score 4-0.

Norths got themselves on the board at the 22 minute mark after a penalty to the visitors inside the 10 metres eventually resulted in Levido throwing a long ball out to winger, Dane Nielsen, who touched down in the corner to equalise. Levido’s conversion attempt was waved away, leaving the score at four apiece.

Mounties looked to hit-back moments later when Taylor hit a short-ball at speed close to the line, but while the ‘Coal Train’ looked certain to score, poor handling would rob him of a four-pointer mere inches from the line.

With 13 minutes left in the first half, Levido kicked a booming forty-twenty that would go out just metres from the try-line to again place the North-siders in prime attacking position. But yet another penalty would halt the momentum of the match, prompting referee Chris Trenemen to warn both sides.

Norths would opt to take the shot at goal, with Levido booting his side ahead to make the score 6-4 going into the sheds.

On the resumption, Norths applied the blow-torch to the Mounties defence, with wave after wave of attack raining down on the home-side’s own line. After multiple patient attempts, Norths would finally break through when a slick back-line movement resulted in Ed Murphy crossing out wide. Levido’s conversion attempt was again waved away, leaving the Bears in control at 10-4.

With Norths again looking dangerous on the Mounties line, Norths were awarded a penalty after Cheyne Whitelaw was hit high by Makahesi Makatoa. Norths seized the chance to boot themselves two points further ahead, with Levido slotting the goal from right in front to make it 12-4 with 20 minutes remaining.

The Bears continued to gather momentum by forcing a number of morale-boosting errors late in the match, much to the appreciation of the vocal Bears faithful who made the trip to Aubrey Keech for the Round 4 clash.

With seven minutes remaining, Bears hooker, Deitz was collected by a swinging arm, prompting a penalty that would see Norths have another roll of the dice close to the home-side’s line that would again prove fruitless.

Mounties would dominate the closing stages of the match following the sin-binning of Deitz, but it would be the North Sydney side that would take home the competition points.

North Sydney Bears 12 (D Nielsen, E Murphy tries; E Levido 2 goals) def Mounties 4 (D Reardon try)
