At North Sydney Oval on Sunday the Bears Jersey Flegg team came up against the Central Coast Rip. While the first half was a scratchy affair for the Bears, the second was full of intensity and pride in defence. From a half-time score of 10 all the forwards, leed by Captain Blake McLean, busted the line and ran the ball up well in attack. In the backline came a tremendous show by centre Danny Chiha achieving a hat trick of tries. The final score 22-16 to the Mighty Bears. Coach Gavin Catanach who praised his team for their second half display commented, "The Rip were not an easy side. It was a tough win".
North Sydney 22 (D Chiha 3, L Cameron tries, O Saunders 2, R Watson goals) defeated, Central Coast 16 (D Jarrett, J Wright, B Baird tries M Stott 2 goals)
The Flegg side next head for Leichhardt Oval to play the Balmain, 1:00pm, 28 May 2005.
