Wests Magpies were too strong for Balmain Tigers in the Harold Matthews and SG Ball Cup at Lidcombe Oval, while Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg Cup side kicked off its season with a big win over the Kaiviti Silktails.

Balmain were too strong for Wests in the opening match of the day with the Tigers defeating the Magpies Under 16s development side 24-8.

Wests Magpies remain at the top of the ladder in the Harold Matthews Cup with three rounds remaining after defeating the Tigers 38-nil.

The Magpies are also doing well in the SG Ball Cup where they sit fourth on the ladder following their 38-10 over the Tigers.

Magpies Coach – Stephen Isdale

It was a special occasion for our boys playing at Lidcombe Oval, a place with so much history, and the boys also knew there were Cubs spots up for grabs.

It was really pleasing to see the team believe in and stick to the processes of what we have been working on.

We knew Tigers had nothing to lose so it was important for us to respect them and not have the mindset of trying to score off every set.

We enjoyed the win and the whole experience at Lidcombe and I was really pleased to see Teancam Epati score on debut.

We now turn our focus to the Bunnies.

Tigers Coach – Tony Bazouni

It was a tough day at the office on Saturday against a formidable opponent in the Magpies, who showed why they are the team to beat in this year’s competition.

There were a lot of positives for us to take from the game, particularly with the development players coming in and getting a taste of junior rep footy.

James Baronovski was a standout for us with an inspiring 60 minute effort, tackling himself to a standstill and taking us forward all day. He picked up both the man of the match and players’ player awards.

Wests Magpies vs Balmain Tigers

Magpies 40 – 10 Tigers

Play by Play

Magpies Coach – Joey Saukuru

We started off on the right foot by posting the first two tries but a few incomplete sets allowed Balmain into the game and it was 10-all ten minutes before the break.

Navren Willett scored a long-range try just before half time for us to regain the lead.

After a few choice words from the coach at halftime, the boys found another gear in the second period to score a convincing win.

Tigers Coach – Chris Yates

I’m very proud of the boys who fought back after a slow start to 10-all in very hot conditions.

An intercept right on half-time really hurt us and we then lost two players to HIA and played the last 20 minutes without a bench.

I thought Mark Tannous, Sam Schmitzer and Chad Daniels were very good, as was Henri Young on debut.
