It was another weekend of mixed results for Wests Tigers junior representative teams in Round 4 with only two of five sides recording wins, as well as a number of close defeats.
Wests Tigers Tarsha Gale were once again the pick of the sides as they chalked up a dominant 22-12 win over the Parramatta Eels side — coming from behind on two occasions before showing their class throughout the second half to move their way up to fifth on the competition ladder.
Western Suburbs Harold Matthews side put their slow start to the season behind them with a strong 20-10 win over Illawarra — Kit Laulili crossing for two tries in the space of 13 minutes to ensure the two points for the Magpies and consolidate them inside the top eight for the first time this season.
It was another tough result, however, for the Magpies' SG Ball side as the in-form Steelers ran out 36-12 winners at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
Balmain's Harold Matthews side battled hard against the Rabbitohs with captain Tony Sukkar again leading from the front, but ultimately came up short in the end with the hosts scoring five tries to three en route to a 24-18 win.
The Tigers' SG Ball side also looked to be on course for another good win before a try in the final minutes to South Sydney saw the hosts home with a two-point win.
Wests Tigers GSR were unable to finish off the weekend with a win, going down to the Riverina Bulls in both the Andrew Johns Cup and Laurie Daley Cup.
