Bulls Brace For Fijian Flair

Bulls Brace For Fijian Flair
By Lawrence Machado
The Hills Bulls are bracing for a Fijian onslaught when they play the Silktails away in one of the top matches in round 11 of the Ron Massey rugby league cup this Saturday.

The Bulls are second on the table, after a 48-0 drubbing of Cabramatta Two Blues in their round nine clash. Round 10 was a bye for all teams.

Experienced Bulls coach Mick Withers said they focused on completing their sets and that paid rich dividends against Cabramatta where half back Josh Lewis scored one try and converted seven. “We completed sets and built pressure on Cabramatta who made us work for the victory, specially in the first 30 minutes when the score was 6-0,” Withers said.

“The team enjoyed their break because there were a lot of sore bodies (from the previous rounds) and I rested some of the older players in the last 20 minutes.

“The Fijians are good players and are very flamboyant … they are very athletic and if you give them half an inch, they can hurt you.

“We expect them to be a handful but we are enjoying a good season to date The Hills Bulls are in fine form.”

Kick off is at 3pm at Mascot Oval.

Wolves Licked
The Windsor Wolves have only themselves to blame for another poor first half in their previous game against Blacktown. The Wolves completed 12 sets, compared to 20 by Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in the opening half to trail 24-6 at the interval.

Despite their fightback in the second half, the Wolves lost 30-26, with coach Chris Yates disappointed with a few crucial decisions.

“The boys played their best second half this season but we lost the game in the first half,” said Yates.

The Wolves can redeem themselves when they host Cabramatta at Windsor Sports Complex this Saturday at 5pm.

“You cannot win a game in the first 20 minutes but you can lose a game in the first 20 minutes,” Yates said. The Wolves have also had to deal with the departure of former NRL star Tony ‘T-Rex’ Williams whose social media post on the Jarryd Hayne conviction led to his downfall. However, Yates said they have been fortunate to sign up a good replacement in former Dragons and Bulldogs centre, Tim Lafai.
