The North Sydney Bears are assured of finishing in the NSWRL Premier League top-8 with a victory at North Sydney Oval on Saturday. There was no better way for the North Sydney club to celebrate their centenary than with a hard fought 24-22 win over arch rivals the Manly Sea Eagles.
On a day when the NSW Fire Brigades Crows Nest Fire Station and the North Sydney Club celebrated their Centenaries with an exchange of gifts, it has been 3 years since Jersey Flegg Coach Josh White took the last North Sydney side in to a finals series in 2004.
However the close win has meant the celebrations have been put on hold as the Bears look to improve their position on the table.
