    Mate you can get live score updates on the NSW Rugby League website, go to the Junior Rep Preveiw for the round, click on this and it will take to the Junior Rep game cast where they will cover 1 of the games and provide updates for the rest.

    Go the Mighty Tigers.

    Things are starting to fall into place but it has taken forever.The pathway is still missing and until we gain an nrl side you are always going to have kids playing elsewhere, and im sure there is alot of young sports stars from other sports that do much more travelling than these kids

    It doesnt matter if they have a NRL club or not. If they are playing rep footy either at Matts or SG ball or even schoolboy reps they have a pathway. Honestly do you think the boys at the SWAS, Western Academy or the Coast dont have a pathway. Believe me they do, and we have to remember that only a small precentage go on to play NRL, from these all these teams.

    so they're 14 year olds atm ...or have just turned 15... but who have their 15th birthday this year .. so will be 15 at dec 31st this year & eligible for another year of matts next year

    the way you wrote it said they're were 15 year olds in the Souths squad

    a heck of a lot of matts players don't turn 16 til after the reps season finishes .. is what i meant.

    Correct

    and given this...I think whilst they are getting good results they are probably overachieving ...see how they go against your raiders on Sat...Give a game report if you are going

    will be up in Syd on the weekend


    I'll be surprised if our boys will trouble the bunnies in the Matts
    some issues not easily resolved in our side I fear

    I think they have their strongest halves pairing of Croker & Hickson in this week so thats a positive
    but it won't be enough ... I'll be happy to be wrong.

    I'm going so will give a run down. Also noticed the game is at West Belconnen now instead of Seiffert. 5 minutes drive instead of 40 minutes for me!

    Another scrappy performance by Centurions Harold Matts side today. They have a knack of being able to spoil opposition rythyms though.

    They went down to the Tigers 12 - 8 but only on two bum conversions

    Geez, you are right how good is this comp. I have never seen a bunch of boys give it their all today. Two major injuries in the first half, both where forwards. They played with a 2 man bench, 40mins.

    I cannot wait till next week Coast taking on the dogs, both are off a losses. This should be interesting veiwing.

    Defensively the Centurions have something special no doubt.

    Their attack needs work agains the better sides they will meet at some point but they do have alot of heart like you said.

    Two good games in Canberra today with the locals up against the Bunnies. The Raider's Matts side lost (30-20) but the Ball side held on for a close win (22-16). The both South's sides were noticeably bigger compared to the Raiders.

    In the Matts the Raiders scored first but the Bunnies had a lot of speed from the play the ball and were making good yards. When the Raiders got close to the Souths try line they managed to cross, but it was hard work getting there and they couldn't seem to complete many sets. It was 16-10 at half time and although it went try for try to start with, the Bunnies had enough in attack to come away with the win.

    The SG Ball was a ripper match and a real arm wrestle with a lot of niggle. Souths scored first and alternating tries saw them up 12-10 at half time. A try a piece had them locked at 16 all with 15 mins to go. Plenty of end to end play and solid line defence with half back Anthony Milford from the Raiders really on song with his kicking game.

    Then Milford scores the game breaker from one of the best kicks and chases you'll see (worth trying to find it on video highlights). He converts his try and the Raiders are up 22-16. Milford continues with some perfectly weighted kicks into the Bunnies in-goal to keep them on the back foot. But Souths manage to get down to the Raider's try line and some desperate defence keeps them out until full time.

    I haven't seen him play before, but Anthony Milford looks special. He really came alive in the second half and was a real game breaker who was always looking for work. So with wins over the Dogs and the Bunnies the Raider's SG Ball team is on a roll.

    Again I attended two games, as they both out at St Mary's. The first was Panthers v. Dragons and the other WSAS v. Bulldogs.

    Matts
    I was really looking forward to the first contest as I have been very impressed with the Dragons Matts team to date, and I was expecting them to give the might of the Panthers a shake up! They did given the score board however the Panthers took the points and IMO they have to be hot favourites now to take out the title (I say this as Parra do not seem to have the powerhouse team like two years ago). I am however hoping the Dragons lads might take a lesson from this loss and improve. After all it was only 2 tries to 1.

    With respect to the WSAS v. Doggies game, some might say that this was an upset (but maybe not). This is the second week in a row where the Doggies were severely lacking direction and leadership in the middle of the park, and WSAS seized upon it! Pre-season had the Doggies up there as one of the favourites but they are not the team they had like last year! But for the African winger, Agyemang, the Doggies would have faltered by a larger margin. In fact he saved the Doggies last week with his go forward against the Raiders. For mine the Doggies are out of contention for the title unless their current issue with the halves; they can't keep going to their hooker Alouche (the Australian rep)! The Doggies prop with the corn rolls went well too. Nevertheless full credit to the WSAS boys. They looked dangerous every time they got the ball out to the their backs through the good work of their halves combination. In addition the WSAS front rowers were near unstoppable all afternoon.

    SG Ball
    Talk about a near cliff-hanger upset! The Dragons almost had the Panthers until the last 10 minutes or so of the game! I would never have dreamed that the Dragons would have led by two points this far into the game. Up until this game I honestly thought the Panther's massive juggernaut pack was going to roll over all that confronted them. A credit to the Dragons for sticking it to them. I had totally written off the Dragons this year and its looks as if I may to eat my words! As they say never turn on your own ... lol!

    As with the WSAS v. Bulldogs this was a game that was littered with mistakes from both sides. And don't get me started on the poor refereeing display. If the ref had of taken of his pink shirt I am sure he would have been wearing the #18 SWAS jersey ... LMAO! Anyway SWAS looked great in the first half and an upset was on the cards. But for the hard hitting defence of the Doggies (especially that freak Demetriou) SWAS may have won! The Bulldogs have however changed their line up significantly and it seems to have worked. There was notable improvements in the defence of the back-rowers (why weren't these boys playing for the last two weeks??), and the outside backs finally got some decent ball! The game was another cliff hanger right up until full-time. Unlucky to WSAS!

    Regards,
    Tuc

    Can anyone give me any background into Anthony (Tony) Milford? I know he is of Samoan origin and hails from QLD. He has also represented QLD at all levels and will probably be a certain selection in the QLD U/18's this year as well.

    Essentially I am wondering if anyone knows if he is related to the two Samoan brothers, Asa and Lua Milford, that played for the Balmain (now West) Tigers in the mid-90's? These two were lightning quick as well! Might be another chip off the old block!

    Regards,
    Tuc

    PS:: Richies, Guston did play and was one of the reasons why the centres and wingers got some good ball from which they were able to score!
