Knights Junior Rep Results Good starts roll on for two of our teams

Author : Newcastle Knights

With kickoff to the NRL season fast approaching, our Junior Representative sides have wrapped up the second week of their respective seasons.

After a perfect opening weekend, two of our three teams remain unbeaten after a more mixed weekend of results.

Here’s how all our teams faired this weekend.

SG Ball Cup

Tigers 26 def. Knights 22 (Davis, Ryan, Cant, Williams)

A hat-trick to Balmain winger Harrison Henson, including two tries in the final ten minutes, sunk a spirited Knights fightback at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday afternoon.

After going into the break 18-6 behind, tries to Noah Ryan, Thomas Cant and Lachlan Williams gave the Knights a two point leading heading into the final stages.

A late sin bin to Tigers forward Vaka Aho gave the Knights a sniff, however the heroics of Henson were enough to get the Tigers over the line in a see-sawing encounter.

The Knights now sit 6th on the ladder after two games. (Click to view Ladder, Players Stat’s & more)

Tarsha Gale Cup

Eels 0 def. by Knights 24 (Tevi-Fuimaono, Chester, Middleton, Clancy, Trapman)

There were no such issues for the Tarsha Gale Cup side, who were completely dominant in their clash with the Eels.

It was a first half blitz which had the game all but over before halftime, with centre Mia Middleton again playing a key role in the five tries to nil rout.

Forwards Bree Chester and Kyhamoana Tevi-Fuimaono also got on the scoresheet, with interchanges Sophie Clancy and Janaya Chapman adding to the Eels’ misery off the bench.

The win saw the Knights rocket to the top of the table on points differential, having conceded just one try in the 120 minutes of football played thus far.

Harold Matthews Cup

Tigers 10 def. by Knights 22 (Ferguson 2, Sharpe 2)

It was a similar story for our under 17s, with a first-half double to centre Fletcher Sharpe shutting the gate before halftime.

Mark O’Meley’s men got off to the perfect start, with fullback Ethan Ferguson crossing in just the 2nd minute of the game
