SS Ryde Eastwood 44 St Marys 24 Half back, Mitch Gray crossed for 2 tries in the first 13 minutes and then Tristan Evans Tsoi came off the bench and scored 2 tries in his first 20 minutes on the field to see the Hawks in total control at 24-6 at the break, and on resumption they almost immediately extended to 30-6. The Saints supporters were given some hope when Maizen scored and following a raft of penalties in the RE red zone, Evans Tsoi was binned and St Marys scored twice more giving a scoreline of 30-20 with 22 minutes left. Shortly after his return from the bin the NSWRL's top scorer suffered what appeared to be a serious jaw injury when he defended against Seumanu on the tryline. RE resisted the pressure and scored 3 more tries. The goal kicking could be an issue in a more competitive match up, with the RE goal kickers landing only 4 from 10 whereas Papa kicked 7 out of 7 for Cabra yesterday. RMC St Marys 32 Hills 16 In a game that bore some similarities to the 2017 GF when Auburn came from next to last to make the big game only to see Wenty blow them off the park, the Hills fairy tale came crashing down as St Marys were irresistible with 5 tries before the break to lead 26-0. When they changed ends the Bulls supporters were believing again as Hills struck a purple patch to score 3 times in 8 minutes including arguable the try of the year. With their season on the line at 26-16, veteran Lestrange fumbled the restart and St Marys regained their composure and after a few sets Sini crossed in the corner to wrap up a GF spot. Wenty and St Marys have managed to defy the lottery finals system so we will see 2 teams play for the title after losing only 3 games out of 22. By contrast, the NSW Cup GF will feature 2 teams that lost a total of 21 games.
