Pathways RoundUp: Round 6

Lots of games played last weekend as many sides represented the club across many competitions!


Parramatta Eels 40 - 10 Western Suburbs Magpies

CommBank Stadium, Parramatta

Western Suburbs Magpies went down 40-10 on Monday afternoon, coming up second best against an Eels side entrenched in the Top 4 of the NSW Cup ladder. 

After conceding an early try, a nice scrum play from the Magpies led to 19-year-old Junior Tupou crossing in the corner, with Ben Stevanovic converting from the sideline. 

From there, the home side had a second-half surge, with their run of tries halted by another Junior Tupou effort, in which the teenager pushed and swerved through two Eels defenders to touch down.

The Magpies will be looking for their first win of the season when they take on the 6th placed Rabbitohs at Lidcombe Oval on Sunday.


Parramatta Eels 30 - 28 Wests Tigers

Kellyville Park, Kellyville 

After leading early, Wests Tigers’ Jersey Flegg team conceded a try with 9 minutes left on the clock to go down to Parramatta on Friday. 

Despite the loss, the U/21’s boys have shown signs of improvement since the likes of captain Kade Hill and Sione Fainu have joined the side and remain only 2 points away from sitting in a Top 6 spot.

There were some clear standouts in the defeat, with Kitione Kautoga continuing his impressive run of form with a try and Trey Peni crossing for his 6th try in 6 games.

Wests Tigers will aim to claim their second win of the season against the 11th placed Rabbitohs on Sunday at Lidcombe Oval.


Wests Tigers 8 - 4 Illawarra Steelers 

Ringrose Park, Wentworthville 

After a crucial win last week, Wests Tigers’ Tarsha Gale Cup U/19’s side produced a tremendous result in their Elimination Final this morning, coming up with the victory over Illawarra to progress to the Preliminary Finals!

The return of lock forward and captain Eliza Siilata was an enormous boost, with her leadership skills proving crucial in the hard-fought 8-4 victory.

After conceding an early try, a fight-back ensued, with Maraia Rorocla and Imogen Gobran crossing and the Tigers holding on for the remaining 25 minutes of the contest.

Congratulations girls on this huge result and we look forward to their Semi Final against the Minor Premiership-winning Sydney Roosters Indigenous Academy next week!


Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 16 - 14 Balmain Tigers

St Marys Leagues Stadium, North St Marys

Balmain’s SG Ball Cup U/19’s outfit went down to Canterbury-Bankstown in a heartbreaking defeat on Friday in their Elimination Final.

The Tigers led early, with a Jonathan Ibrahim short ball allowing Leo Nasio to cross out wide and an Emmanuel Di Bartolo cut-out pass sending Joseph Delle over in the left corner.

After the Bulldogs struck back to lead, a barnstorming run from Delle down the short-side led to him crashing over for his second.

Down by two, the Tigers fought hard to score a late try, with Di Bartolo especially influential in trying to create chances for Balmain.

Unfortunately, it was not to be, with Balmain’s season coming to an end, albeit not without some clear standouts, such as Delle and Di Bartolo who will be worth keeping a close eye on into the future.
