    INTRUST SUPER PREMIERSHIP


    ISP Dragons surprised by Sea Eagles loss

    A dominant first-half display from Blacktown Workers has engineered a tenacious victory, with the Sea Eagles downing the Dragons 20-12 at WIN Stadium on Sunday afternoon (17 June).


    Though both teams scored three tries apiece, the radar-like goal-kicking of Jackson Hastings made the difference at the end of the 80 minutes.

    Blacktown's forward pack, led by prop Toafofoa Sipley, were fantastic in a powerful performance, while halves Hastings and Cade Cust directed play perfectly.

    The result cements the Sea Eagles' place inside the Intrust Super Premiership NSW top eight, lifting them into seventh spot. St George Illawarra remains in fourth position despite the loss.

    In a match with plenty at stake for both sides, Blacktown looked ominous from the outset, controlling the middle-third of the field with some bustling carries.

    They nearly claimed the opening try in the 6th minute, when Lloyd Perrett came within inches of pouncing on a grubber from Lewis Brown. But the prop couldn't ground the ball under heavy attention from the Dragons' defence, picking up a head knock that saw him forced from the field.

    St George Illawarra enjoyed plenty of attacking opportunities during the opening stages but couldn't execute, turning over possession five times in the first 15 minutes.

    The Red V eventually got into their groove and seemed to have registered four points when Patrick Herbert stretched out to score. However, the referee ruled a double-movement against the elusive fullback.

    Blacktown Workers made the Dragons pay immediately. After a long bust via custodian Jade Anderson, who bounced away from multiple defenders like a pinball, the Sea Eagles received a penalty deep on the attack.

    With points at a premium, the visitors didn't hesitate to take the gift two points from the boot of Hastings.

    Sipley was rewarded for his fantastic first-half effort with a try under the posts in the 29th minute. The front-rower proved far too powerful for the Dragons as he surged across the line from close range.

    Hastings easily converted; the 8-nil score starting to reflect Blacktown's authority on the match.

    The Workers had the final say of the half but weren't able to post further points, heading into the sheds crammed with confidence.

    And they'd extend their buffer straight after half-time through Hastings. The five-eighth hoisted a bomb into the air that was spilled by Herbert, allowing Hastings to toe the ball ahead and slide into the in-goal to score.

    The former Dragons NYC player converted his own try, pushing the Workers' lead to 14-nil.

    It took a piece of individual brilliance in the 46th minute from Dragons halfback Darren Nicholls to spark the home side. Nicholls took the line on himself 10 metres out and stepped his way across the stripe. Field shanked the conversion attempt; the deficit remaining 10 points.

    St George Illawarra kept its foot on the pedal and ran in for a second try moments later. A smooth backline shift on the left edge gave winger Jordan Pereira the space he needed to record his 13th four-pointer of the season.

    Faced with a stiff breeze, Field couldn't add the extras but the Saints were well and truly back in the contest.

    The Dragons nearly scored a third try when John Tohi dived for the line in the right-hand corner – but the touch judge spotted a foot on the sideline from the winger.

    They wouldn't be denied at the 68th minute mark. Following a strong charge from Herbert, centre Steven Marsters burrowed over from dummy-half to set up an enthralling finish.

    Field relinquished the goal-kicking duties to Nicholls but he couldn't find his range either, leaving the Dragons behind by two.

    Blacktown finally extinguished the Saints' hopes with five minutes remaining. Tyler Cassel stormed onto a beautiful grubber kick from Cust, scoring under the posts to seal the game.

    Hastings continued his unblemished goal-kicking day, giving Blacktown an unassailable eight-point cushion with five minutes to go.

    Both teams will relish a break next weekend as representative round takes centre stage.

    St George Illawarra is pitted against the third-placed Western Suburbs Magpies when the Intrust Super Premiership NSW resumes, while the Sea Eagles take on the high-flying Panthers.

    ISP Dragons fall away against Panthers

    Minus a host of their Intrust Super Premiership regulars, the Penrith Panthers have scored a hard-fought 24-14 win over the St George Illawarra Dragons.


    Tyrone May and Jarome Luai watched on following their starring roles in the Panthers NRL win over the Warriors the night prior, as the fresh-faced Penrith outfit overcame an undermanned Dragons side.

    Running with a howling breeze at their backs in the first period, Penrith found the front courtesy of their captain Kaide Ellis.

    Ellis collected a short ball at the line from NSW Residents representative Liam Martin to register the first points in the match. Fill-in No.6 Adam Keighran converted with ease from adjacent to the uprights.

    But the Dragons would hit back.

    A left-to-right shift found the Steeden in the hands of their fullback Patrick Herbert, who sliced his way through would-be defenders to get the Dragons back within two points. Jai Field's wayward shot on goal ensured it would remain that way, the Panthers up 6-4, just nine minutes played.

    In a worrying way for Dragons coach Mat Head, Panthers big man Andy Saunders strolled his way in for the hosts' second try, again close to the posts. Keighran kept his perfect record with the boot intact, sending Penrith to a 12-4 front.

    Tit-for-tat for much of the first 40 minutes, the Dragons responded again – this time courtesy of Jordan Pereira, who was assisted in no small part by Herbert. The leading try-scorer touched down to take his personal haul in 2018 to 15.

    The blustery conditions at the foot of the mountains proved troublesome for goal kickers – not least Jai Field – who was unable to convert from wide out for a second time on the afternoon.

    12-8 the score would remain at half-time, and upon the change of ends, both sides settled into a back-and-forth rhythm. The Dragons eventually made the game swing in their favour, and did so via Josaia Lovodua who cut through the Panthers' left-edge defence.

    With Field off the field for a HIA, Patrick Herbert slotted the conversion to take the Dragons to a 14-12 lead.

    Lovodua un-did all his good work when he was sent to the sin bin for a professional foul, giving the panthers cause to strike back – which they did.

    Quick-fire tries to Maika Sivo and Keighran shot the hosts out to a 24-14 lead, as Guy Missio's side consolidated their place atop the Intrust Super Premiership NSW ladder.
